Low Power PIR Motion Detector Design: Analog vs. Digital Solutions


May 1, 2018

Curious about the fundamentals of motion detection? Not sure where to start? 

This short video covers the basics of PIR motion detectors, the differences between analog and digital solutions, and how to design the right motion detector circuit for any application (such as video surveillance, lighting systems, and building security). After watching this video, you will be familiar with:

  • How PIR motion detection works
  • How to save power in your PIR circuit 
  • When to use analog or digital solutions
  • Where to find additional support (reference designs, demo boards, etc.)
