ZMD AG

The ZSSC3131, ZSSC3135, ZSSC3136, and ZSSC3138 from ZMD AG, Dresden, Germany, are smart sensor signal conditioner ICs for use with resistive bridge sensing elements such as silicon or ceramic-based piezoresistive transducers or thin-/thick-film or gauge-type sensor elements. All of the ICs provide an analog ratiometric voltage output, operate with supply voltages from 4.5–5.5 V, and have operating temperature ranges from –40°C to 125°C and –40°C to 150°C. Input signal measurement accuracies are within ±0.25% F.S.O. at –25°C to 85°C and ±0.50% F.S.O. at –40°C to 125°C. The ZSSC3135 and ZSSC3138 offer basic sensor connectivity checks while the ZSSC3136 offers a complete set of SIL-compliant sensor diagnostics. The ZSSC3135 and ZSSC3136 offer an external sensor temperature measurement for onchip temperature compensation. (U.S. 208-478-7200)
