High Accuracy Signal Conditoner and Transmitter for Pressure Sensors

Product Overview

The NSA2860 is a highly integrated IC for sensor conditioning and transmitting. It can be used for resistive or voltage output sensors like resistive bridge pressure sensor, thermocouple, RTD etc. The NSA2860 integrates an external JFET regulator, a 24-bit primary signal measurement channel, a 24-bit temperature measurement channel, sensor calibration logic, a pair of constant current sources and a 16-bit DAC. It can provide digital, 0~5V, 0~10V, 4~20mA, PWM and PDM outputs. The high integrity enables very compact PCB design with very few external components.  With the internal calibration algorithm built in the MCU, the NSA2860 supports to compensate the temperature drift of zero and span up to the 2nd order and also the linearity up to the 3rd order.
