Ultra-precise NJR analogue front end brings an array of opportunities

Rutronik UK can now supply New Japan Radio’s NJU9103 analogue front end (AFE) IC with an integrated programmable gain amplifier (PGA) that can be used to process analogue signals with an amplification of up to 512 times.

Being able to configure the front end via a serial peripheral interface (SPI) provides an array of application opportunities. The AFE is well suited for pressure and temperature sensors, flowmeters, thermostats, digital panel meters, and PLCs.

The internal 16-bit ΔΣ A/D converter can perform sampling rates from 0.814ksps to 6.51ksps and is equipped with a single-ended, differential and pseudo-differential input. NJU9103 provides the optimum gain for pressure and flow sensors thanks to versatile setting options. In addition to its wide input range, NJU9103 is characterised by its small package size of 2.3 x 2.3 mm (DFN8) or 3.5 x 6.4mm (SSOP8).

Cost-effective oscilloscope alternative possible: 
By combining NJU09103 with an STM32F429 microcontroller from ST, cost-effective sensor signal processing is a quite simple and straightforward task. Signal analysis and synthesis are easy to implement with the respective evaluation boards of the front end and the microcontroller along with a few passive components. The sinus signal can be visualised with the aid of a connected display. It operates similar to an oscilloscope but can output additional information on the slew rate, resolution, and accuracy of NJU9103.

GaN’s Ground-Floor Opportunity
The electronics industry has a major role to play in helping to save energy, by enabling better equipment and new ways of working and living that that are more efficient and environmentally friendly. Maintaining the pace of technological progress is key, but improvements become both smaller and harder to achieve as each technology matures. We can see this trend in the development of power semiconductors, as device designers seek more complex and expensive ways to reduce switching energy and RDS(ON) against silicon’s natural limitations.
