Keywords:sensor? signal? design tool? WEBENCH?

National Semiconductor Corp. has released a new online design tool to its WEBENCH family. Claimed as the industry's first sensor signal path design tool, the WEBENCH sensor designer tool helps engineers to quickly shift from concept to simulation to prototyping of common sensor solutions widely used in medical, industrial and high-end consumer products.

The sensor designer tool is expected to significantly reduce design time and cost by configuring a complete sensor signal path solution with a few keystrokes. With this, it streamlines the sensor interface and data conversion design by integrating the industry's leading bridge pressure sensors, photo-detector sensors and thermocouple sensors with National's PowerWise energy-efficient op amps and pin- and function-compatible 8bit, 10bit, 12bit, 14bit and 16bit ADCs. The device also helps users to order a customized evaluation kit for prototyping their simulated WEBENCH solution in the lab.
