Developing medium bandwidth signal chain systems must balance conflicting performance measures and fall within cost or power consumption requirements. Engineering such a solution can be complicated and lead to unexpected delays and extensive testing. But, using a signal chain platform—such as ADI Medium Bandwidth—can significantly reduce the complexity and time required to achieve a highly accurate, precise signal chain system.

Autonomous drones and robots utilize small motors. These fast-spinning mini motors require miniature encoders and IC package sizes. This article shows how an optical sinusoidal encoder provides a higher resolution and increased speeds with a 2x3 mm dual simultaneous-sampling SAR-ADC.
