TIDA-00179: The TIDA-00179 reference design is an EMC compliant universal digital interface to connect to absolute position encoders, like EnDat 2.2, BiSS®, SSI or HIPERFACE DSL®. The design supports a wide input voltage range from 15-60V (24V nom). A connector with 3.3V logic I/O signals allows for direct interface to the host processor to run the master protocol. The design allows the host processor to select between a 4-wire encoder interface like EnDat 2.2 and BiSS or a 2-wire interface with power over RS485 like HIPERFACE DSL. To meet the selected encoder's supply range, the design offers a programmable output voltage with either 5.25V or 11V. This design’s power supply offers protection against over-voltage and short circuit according to the selected encoder’s voltage range to prevent damage during a cable short. TIDA-00179 has been tested up to 100m cable length with EnDat 2.2 and 2-wire HIPERFACE DSL encoders.
TIDA-00168: The sole objective of this reference design is to provide comprehensive details on how to design a simple, robust, and accurate analog front end (AFE) circuit for making precision temperature measurements with thermocouple sensors. TIDA-00168 explains the theory, operation, and complications involved in a step-by-step manner. Additionally, this reference design emphasizes topics like error analysis, the necessity of an anti-aliasing filter, biasing resistors for sensor diagnostics, CJC, linearization technique for sensor data, and the design challenges of printed circuit boards.
TIDA-00245: The focus of this design is the bidirectional communication across an isolation for loop powered applications. The challenge of such a solution is first of all the limited size within sensor transmitters and in case of a loop powered system the overall current consumption.
TIDA-00339: This TI Design offers a rapid prototyping platform for IO-Link sensor transmitter. Thanks to its design it can be connected to TIs LaunchPad / BoosterPack ecosystem on which the fully validated IO-Link stack is implemented. The system has easy access to all interface and status signals. The different optional settings make the TI Design flexible to adjust for several use cases. With the ability to connect sensor front-ends the design can be used either as an evaluation platform of the IO-Link interface or as an entire sensor transmitter system. With the industry standard M12 connector the sub-system can be quickly connected to an IO-Link Master System. For more information on TMG: Click here.
