New high-precision fully integrated convertors address the complex and difficult signal processing challenges of direct capacitance-to-digital and impedance-to-digital conversion.

Analog Devices has developed the world's first high-precision, fully integrated convertors that address the complex and difficult signal processing challenges of direct capacitance-to-digital and impedance-to-digital conversion Combining advanced signal processing techniques with high levels of integration, ADI's capacitance-to-digital convertor (CDC) and impedance-to-digital convertor (IDC) devices attain a level of precision previously only possible with conventional analogue voltage-to-digital convertors aided by a significant number of discrete components

ADI's devices provide designers significant advantages over existing discrete solutions for capacitance- and impedance-sensing applications that have historically lacked precision and proven difficult and expensive to design.

The devices are ideal for a wide range of high-performance instrumentation and sensing applications, from blood pressure monitors and glucose analysers to position sensors for automobiles and industrial corrosion analysis systems.
