The MAX1478 highly integrated, analog sensor signal processor is optimized for piezoresistive sensor calibration and compensation without any external components. It includes a programmable current source for sensor excitation, a 3-bit programmable-gain amplifier (PGA), a 128-bit internal EEPROM, and four 12-bit digital-to-analog converters (DACs). Achieving a total error factor within 1% of the sensor's repeatability errors, the MAX1478 compensates offset, offset temperature coefficient, full-span output (FSO), FSO temperature coefficient (FSO TC), and FSO nonlinearity of silicon piezoresistive sensors.

The MAX1478 calibrates and compensates first-order temperature errors by adjusting the offset and span of the input signal via DACs, thereby eliminating the quantization noise associated with digital signal path solutions. Built-in testability features on the MAX1478 result in the integration of three traditional sensor-manufacturing operations into one automated process:

  • Pretest: Data acquisition of sensor performance under the control of a host test computer.
  • Calibration and compensation: Computation and storage (in an internal EEPROM) of calibration and compensation coefficients computed by the test computer and downloaded to the MAX1478.
  • Final test operation: Verification of transducer calibration and compensation without removal from the pretest socket.

  • Although optimized for use with piezoresistive sensors, the MAX1478 may also be used with other resistive sensors (i.e., accelerometers and strain gauges) with some additional external components.
