PGA305 Signal Conditioner

Texas Instruments' PGA305 is for resistive sensing and analog outputs in a variety of applications to measure pressure and temperature

Image of Texas Instruments' PGA305 Signal ConditionerTexas Instruments' PGA305 device supplies an interface for piezoresistive and strain-gauge, pressure-sense elements. It is a full system-on-chip (SoC) solution that features programmable analog front-end (AFE), analog-to-digital converter (ADC), and digital signal processing (DSP) that enable direct connection to the sense element. The PGA305 includes integrated voltage regulators and an oscillator that minimizes the number of external components. It can employ third-order temperature and nonlinearity compensation to achieve high accuracy. This device uses the integrated I2C interface or the one-wire serial interface (OWI) to achieve external communication and simplify the system calibration process. An integrated digital-to-analog converter (DAC) supports absolute-voltage, ratiometric-voltage, and 4 mA to 20 mA current-loop outputs.
