ams has developed a reference design that shows how a simple current and voltage measurement circuit can produce state of charge (SOC) readings for electric scooter batteries. The reference design features ams’ AS8510, which is a two-channel battery sensor interface. The reference design is available free to ams customers.
XMOS and Attero Tech introduced a reference design for audio/visual bridging (AVB) applications. The reference design features the XCore XS1-L2 dual-core processor. XCore processors enables engineers to implement the AVB standard entirely in software, which reduces development times and decreases risk for A/V designs. XCore processors also reduce the cost for AVB endpoints by more [...]
Microchip Technology unveiled a reference design for a fully digitally controlled Grid-Connected Solar Micro Inverter. The reference design connects to any standard solar panel and converts the panel’s DC output into AC power, which can then be fed into the public power grid. In a real-world application, multiple units can be connected together to achieve [...]
Semtech and Microchip Technology introduced the SX1230-13RKEA433 turnkey reference design for multi-band wireless remote keyless entry (RKE) systems. The reference design integrates Semtech’s transmitter and transceiver ICs with Microchip’s KEELOQ code-hopping technology running on PIC microcontrollers (MCUs). The platform is ideal for the development of secure, high-performance and cost-effective RKE systems for vehicles, office buildings, [...]
XMOS created the first USB Audio Class 2.0 reference design for high channel count computer audio interfaces, DJ and live sound mixers, musical instruments and digital effects devices. XMOS USB Audio 2.0 solutions help developers of audio devices to quickly bring products to market which support the latest digital audio at the highest audio quality. [...]
Unicoi Systems introduced the Fusion Embedded reference designs for radio over IP (RoIP) applications. The common functionality between RoIP and VoIP applications makes Fusion Embedded VoIP reference designs ideal solutions for engineers designing RoIP devices. The Fusion Embedded VoIP Gateway and Terminal Adapter reference designs provide low power SIP voice processing within a secure jumpstart [...]
Microchip Technology and Google teamed on a reference implementation of the Google PowerMeter API for embedded developers. Embedded designers can use the reference implementation to create products for the measurement and monitoring of energy usage with Microchip’s 16- and 32-bit PIC microcontrollers, energy-measurement ICs, Ethernet controllers, and radios for ZigBee and embedded Wi-Fi wireless networking.
