Available now from Mouser, the Texas Instruments (TI) TDC1000 Integrated analog front-end (AFE) is designed for ultrasonic sensing measurements of level, fluid identification / concentration, flow, and proximity/distance applications common in automotive, industrial, medical, and consumer markets. When paired with TI's MSP430/C2000 MCU, power, wireless and source code, it can provide the complete ultrasonic sensing solution. The ultrasonic AFE offers programmability and flexibility to accommodate a wide-range of applications and end equipment. The TDC1000 can be configured for multiple transmit pulses and frequencies, gain, and signal thresholds for use with a wide-range of transducer frequencies (31.25kHz to 4MHz) and Q-factors. Similarly, the programmability of the receive path allows ultrasonic waves to be detected over a wider range of distances/tank sizes and through various mediums, says the company. Applications include measurements through tanks of varying materials, fluid Level / fluid identification / concentration, flow metering (water / gas / heat, and distance / proximity sensing.
