In designing personal electronics, industrial or medical applications, engineers must address some of the same challenges: how to increase performance, add features and shrink form factors. Along with these considerations, they must carefully monitor temperature to ensure safety and protect systems and consumers from harm. In this first chapter of Temperature Sensing Precision Labs, we teach the fundamentals of temperature sensing - application use-cases for temperature sensors, the various types of temperature sensors and the trade-off each sensor type presents.
These introduction videos give the background on magnetic concepts and Hall Effect ICs for engineers of all experience levels. The second video introduces the magnetic field calculator Texas Instruments created to aid in design challenges.
Understanding the key specifications of Hall sensors will aid in ensuring the proper device is selected for a given application. The series of videos in this section will give a thorough explanation of the tradeoffs in bandwidth versus power, the importance of the operate and release point in Hall Effect switches and latches and the key parameters for linear Hall Effect sensors.
There are a variety of applications for Hall Effect sensors, each with its own unique system requirement. The series of videos in this section will walk through some of the top Hall applications such as rotary encoding and proximity sensing.
