Precision Sensor Signal Conditioner with Overvoltage Protection

Low-Cost, Precision Sensor Signal Conditioner

Please check latest availability status for a specific part variant.


The MAX1454 is a highly integrated analog sensor signal conditioner targeted for automotive applications. The device provides amplification, calibration, and temperature compensation to enable an overall performance approaching the inherent repeatability of the sensor. The fully analog signal path introduces no quantization noise in the output signal while enabling digitally controlled trimming of the output. Offset and span are calibrated with integrated 16-bit DACs, allowing sensors to be truly interchangeable.

The device architecture includes a programmable sensor excitation, a 32-step programmable-gain amplifier (PGA), a 2K x 8 bits internal flash memory, four 16-bit DACs, and an on-chip temperature sensor. In addition to offset and span compensation, the device provides a unique temperature-compensation method for offset TC and FSO TC to provide a remarkable degree of flexibility while minimizing manufacturing costs.

The device is packaged in a 16-pin TSSOP and covers the automotive AEC-Q100 Grade 1 temperature range of -40°C to +125°C.
