PICOSTRAIN® - Digital Weight Measurement Circuits for Strain Gages
PICOSTRAIN®circuit - on chip microprocessor for load cell weight measurement, offers high resolution to pico second, low current, and digital circuit integration without analog dependence.
Precise, Flexibile Digital Weight Measurement Solutions PICOSTRAIN® circuits use the acam TDC measurement principle to measure resistance in conjuction with capacitance in time intervals instead of voltage. This enables strain-gage measuremment by a time to digital converter circuit.
Wheatstone Bridge - A Thing of the Past Unlike a wheatstone bridge, the lean circuit design of PICOSTRAIN® is integrated. It does not require analog input and has flexible update rates. PICOSTRAIN® circuits operate well with a half-bridge, consuming ultra low current.
High Resolution - Digital Strain Gage Measurement PICOSTRAIN® circuits easily handle wide temperature ranges and compensation. High Resolution strain-gage measurement with PICOSTRAIN® is so precise and efficient, that this technology sets new standards in circuit design.
