DB-Series Sensor Interface ICs
DB-Series signal processing ICs combine with NVE or
other sensors, providing high-current switched output,
thermal shutdown circuitry, reverse battery protection,
and a regulated output voltage for the sensor and other
DB002 ICs also provide protection against short circuits
and high voltage transients from capacitive and inductive
loads. DB001 ICs do not provide short-circuit protection,
and are designed for use primarily with sensors with
their own short-circuit protection.
Illustrative applications are shown below:
Short-circuit protection is provided by th AD9xx-xx.
This illustrative circuit shows a current sourcing configuration.
For current-sinking, connect Source Out
to ground, and use Sink Out pin as output.
Both the AD9xx part and the DB001-00 part come in MSOP8
packages for an extremely small PCB.
