Summary

The Mixed-signal Module offers a mixed-signal test and measurement infrastructure. Furthermore, it addresses the specificities of continuous long term sensor based monitoring solutions.

This technology and method of operation can be used for initialization, measurement, and resource management through mixed-signal analog bus scheduling, synchronization and group addressing for built-in calibration strategies for example.

Challenge | Opportunity

This solution targets independent or inter-dependent resource management scenarios such as multi-sensor and other scenarios of possible process/component sharing. These are intended for individual or group synchronized core task management as part of a flexible long-term solution for monitoring, self-calibration, built-in self-testing, measurements and/or group synchronization dependant strategies.

An extension to I2C compatible instruments is included. Disclosed is a module comprising an interpreter sub-module, for receiving and responding to I2C sequences and a register bank module comprising a plurality of registers for storing values.

Main Advantages

  • I2C multiple core/instrument accessibility
  • Synchronized access
  • Extension to analog and/or digital elements
  • Speeds up communication
  • Facilitates inter-module sequential and instantaneous operations
  • Reduced resource consumption
  • I2C broadcast level addressability expansion
