Mouser Electronics is now stocking the world’s first Inductance-to-Digital Converter from Texas Instruments which is a contact-less, short-range sensing technology.
Described as a ‘revolution in sensing’ by Texas Instruments the LDC1000 Inductance-to-Digital Converter provides a sensing technology that provides for a low-cost, high-resolution sensing of conductive targets in the presence of dust, dirt, oil, and moisture, making it very reliable in hostile environments.
Using a coil which can be created on a PCB as a sensing element, the LDC1000 supports ultra-low cost system solutions.
Inductive sensing technology enables precise measurement of linear/angular position, displacement, motion, compression, vibration, metal composition, ideal for applications in markets such as automotive, consumer, computer, industrial, medical, and communications.
The product is available in a SON-16 package and offers several modes of operation. An SPI interface simplifies connection to an MCU. The LDC1000EVM is an evaluation module that can be used to evaluate the LDC1000 Inductance-to-Digital Converter.
