Ultrasonic sensing with the PGA460-Q1


PGA460 ultrasonic sensing: EVM GUI system diagnostics


March 3, 2017

This video provides a demonstration of the ultrasonic module system diagnostics for the PGA460 Evaluation Module (EVM) using the GUI software. System diagnostics can be used to determine if the PGA460, driver components, or transducer are operating and behaving as expected. These integrated features prevent the need to perform hardware troubleshooting or debugging, and aids in identifying any module related performance issues. Other topics discussed in this video include EEPROM programming and saving the memory map.
