Design engineers can now rapidly evaluate and deploy new human-machine interface devices using Maxim Integrated Products’ MAXREFDES82# smart force sensor reference design, according to the company. Typical weigh scales provide one dimension of information, downward force, whereas MAXREFDES82# provides both downward force and center of mass, by collecting responses from four load cells using the MAX11254—a 24-bit, six-channel analog-to-digital converter (ADC). This unique configuration, enabled by the highly integrated 24-bit ADC, provides second and third dimensions of information about whatever object presses upon it. The MAXREFDES82# is a new concept, operating as both a weigh scale and 3D touch interface in rugged environments. For more information, visit www.maximintegrated.com.
