    Microchip Technology Inc. announced that system designers using the de-facto industry standard, MOST® technology, in their automotive infotainment networks can now leverage Microchip’s broad product portfolio of MOST networking products to quickly bring cost-efficient CI+-based Pay TV to their cars. The MOST Cooperation recently released its latest MOST Stream Transmission Specification, which includes…

Managing External Magnetic Field Interference When Using ACS71x Current Sensor ICs

Managing External Magnetic Field Interference When Using ACS71x Current Sensor ICs By Richard Dickinson and William Bentley Abstract The highly compact Hall effect current sensor ICs without concentrators that are now available make it possible to enhance performance of small-current differentiation by simple layout steps and shielding the device from extraneous magnetic flux along its…

High Efficiency Current Sensing Hall Sensor IC

New Approaches to High-Efficiency Current Sensing: Integrated Hall Sensor ICs Save Power and Space. Recent advancements in integrated Hall-effect current sensor technology provide an alternative current sensing solution that reduces power loss, achieves most cost targets, and occupies a much smaller volume on the application printed circuit board. Current Sensing with a Sense Resistor and…

Latching Switch Hall-Effect IC Basics

There are four general categories of Hall-effect IC devices that provide a digital output: unipolar switches, bipolar switches, omnipolar switches, and latches. Latching switches are described in this application note. Similar application notes on  unipolar switches, bipolar switches, and omnipolar switches are provided on the Allegro™ website. Latching Hall-effect sensor ICs, often referred to as "latches,"…

This AI program interprets the SAT at the same level as the average American

GeoS, an AI program from the Allen Institute for Artificial Intelligence (AI2), is as good at answering SAT questions as the average American. For the first time, an artificial intelligence software program capable of seeing and reading, has answered questions from the SAT at the level of an average 11th grade student.     Developed…

Robot trash collectors could be coming to a neighborhood near you

It's not trash talk — Volvo’s robots on wheels could soon be hauling away your garbage Though they look like relatives of Disney’s Wall-E, Volvo has collaborated with recycling firm, Renova, and universities in Sweden and the U.S. to develop trash-collecting robots. These two-wheeled bots will be able to roll around a neighborhood, pick up…
