iSim Online Designer



Advanced design tool for creating complex solutions, this is available both as a software download or an online app.



Capture schematic, view waveforms, perform application analysis and more. It is an interactive web-based design tool for selecting and simulating devices from Intersil's broad portfolio. (power management devices and operational amplifiers.)



Remote Strain Gauge Reference Design



Remote Strain Gauge Reference Design



"Intersil's applications engineer, Daniel Goodhew, presents the remote strain gauge reference design using Nextreme's thermal energy harvester and Intersil's low power, low noise chopper amplifier."



History



The original Intersil was founded in 1967. After being acquired by General Electric Corp in 1981, it was sold to Harris Corporation in 1988, at which point the name was retired. Intersil at Wikipedia.



My own analog design carrer (while in college) started with national semiconductor databooks and Intersil CMOS Hot ideas.

How fibre optical sensors work



An example of an integrated sensor is the deformation sensor, the schematic is below...



integrated strain sensor



It is based on the same basic principle of white-light interferometryas described in the section on point sensor above.Light from a white-light source is transmitted via optical fibre tothe optical sensor. Here the sensor consists of a fibre optical coupler branching out into two fibres of different length and having aminiature mirror attached at each end.

Schumacher Electric started originally by designing and producing custom-built transformers for the electronic industry.



PST-900X ProSeries Battery Tester with a Printer



PST-900X ProSeries Battery Tester with a Printer



This is 3 Testers Battery, Charging and Starting in one instrument. Easy to use with 3 Button Operation and used for testing 6 & 12 volt batteries.



It is also helpful in evaluating 12 & 24 volt charging systems. It has a 16 Character LCD with Adjustable Backlighting. Includes Case, Clamps, Batteries.



Before you start testing - Precautions - (from the user manual)



Be sure the area around the battery is well ventilated while the battery is being tested.



Clean the battery terminals. Be careful to keep corrosion from coming in contact with your eyes.



Inspect the battery for a cracked or broken case or cover. If the battery is damaged, do not use the tester.



If the battery is not a sealed maintenance free battery, check the level of each cell and if necessary, add distilled water until the battery acid reaches the level specified by the manufacturer. This helps purge excessive gas from the cells. Do not overfill.



If it is necessary to remove the battery from the vehicle to test it, always remove the ground terminal from the battery first. Make sure all accessories in the vehicle are off to ensure you do not cause any arcing.

The fuel cell relies on a basic oxidation/reduction reaction, as with a battery, but the reaction takes place on the fuel rather than the electrodes. The fuel cell produces electricity as long as the cell receives a supply of fuel and can dispose of the oxidized old fuel .
