Resistive bridge sensor signal conditioner

The SROIC2100 device provides an interface for resistive bridge sensor elements, such as RTD, thermocouple, piezoresistive, and strain-gauge pressure-sense elements. The device is a full system-on-chip (SoC) solution that incorporates programmable gain amplifier, ADC, and digital signal processing. Further, the SROIC2100 device includes integrated voltage regulators, an on-chip temperature sensor, and an oscillator, thus minimizing the number of external components.
