What is a smart AFE?
TI's new smart AFEs and smart DAC products have built-in non-volatile memory, which are factory programmable, and they have programmable state machines, ADCs (AFE only), DACs, PWM generators, and custom waveform generators - all in one device! You can replace microcontrollers and discrete components in applications that involve precision resistors, 555 Times, PWM generator, medical alarms in patient monitoring devices and solenoid valve controls.
Our goal here is to help analog and software engineers save cost, remove tiny microcontrollers where they are a burden, expedite design cycles, and improve quality! So come check out our smart AFEs and smart DACs.
