In this post I continue the presentation of components of provided equipments.
4. Based on the ADXL362 chip, the following items are provided:
a. EVAL-ADXL362Z: It is a 3-axis digital accelerometer board with different, ± 2 g, ± 4 g and ± 8 g of measurement ranges. It operates in two modes: the first is the measurement mode with less then 3 μA and data rate between 12,5 and 400 Hz, the others is the wake up mode with 270 nA consumption. The output has 12-bit resolution via SPI protocol.
b. EVAL-ADXL362Z-MLP: It is a complete system for real-time evaluation of the accelerometer. It has a graphical user interface (GUI) to evaluate the parameters, for example power consumption, temperature coefficient and noise. The system consists of a motherboard and a satellite board.
5. Based on the ADXL375 chip, the following items are provided:
a. EVAL-ADXL375Z: It is a 3-axis digital accelerometer board ± 200 g of measurement ranges. This board is ideal for shock detection with high range of survival (10 000 g). The output has 16-bit two complement data via SPI (3- or 4-wire) or I²C protocol.
b. EVAL-ADXL375Z-M: It is a evaluation system of 3-axis digital accelerometer with high resolution (13-bit) measurement up ± 200 g. The system consists of main board and a satellite board.
It is a 3-axis, analog accelerometer with ± 200 g of measurement range. The analog outputs of ADXL362/375/377Z are ratiometric: that means that 0 g measurement output is always at half of the 3,3 V output (1,65 V), (negative) lowest limit is at 0 V and (positive) higher limit is at 3,3 V with full scaling in between. The board is ideal for shock detection with high range of survival (10 000g), therefore it is the basis of head impact monitor section.
7. Tektronix TBS 1202B-EDU
The provided oscilloscope is a digital model with 7'' WVGA TFT color display, 200 MHz bandwidth and 2 GS/s sample rate on 2 channels. It has a Courseware feature that is ideal for the teaching (this feature not been used during the design). The UK type plugin cable was included, nevertheless it was not problem, because a needed European cable was available at home.
8. UR5041 and UR5562 resins
The polyurethane resins were provided by Electrolube.
