Renesas provides a broad portfolio of resistive and capacitive sensor signal conditioners (SSCs) that make it easy for our customers to build best-in-class sensor solutions. These integrated, high precision, reliable and robust signal conditioning circuits for sensors can operate in demanding industrial, automotive, and consumer environments with long-term stability. Supported by Renesas’ decades of industry experience, advanced software and evaluation tools, our SSCs can lower total system cost and reduce time to market.

Industrial Sensor Signal Conditioners

Renesas’ portfolio of resistive and capacitive sensor signal conditioners are ideal for industrial applications (such as humidity sensors, flow sensors, pressure sensors, level sensors, etc.), allowing for high precision signal processing, in both system diagnostics and high-resolution output up to 24-bits.

Resistive SSCs provide flexibility in analog front-end configuration for easy sensor adaption with up to 24bit ADC resolution, as well as various analog and digital output interfaces, enabling customers to develop complete sensor platforms. These SSCs are ideal for factory automation, consumer/white goods, and medical applications.

Capacitive SSCs enable a current consumption as low as 1.3µA at 1 sample per second. This energy efficient solution optimizes battery-driven applications, such as HVAC systems, weather stations, and building automated climate and ventilation systems.

Automotive Solutions with "Single-pass" Calibration

Renesas’ automotive sensor signal conditioning ICs are all-in-one, energy efficient products that are easy-to use. Our single-pass operation calibration lowers costs by reducing test time without compromising precision, enabling design of cost-effective, accurate sensing systems. These SSCs also offer best-in-class performance with highly integrated operations and support for ISO26262, Automotive EMC, and reliability requirements.

About Sensor Signal Conditioners

Most analog signals require some form of preparation before they can be digitized. Sensor signal conditioning is the manipulation of a sensor signal in a way that prepares it for the next stage of processing. Renesas’ sensor signal conditioner ICs typically interface with two main sensor types: resistive bridges and differential capacitors. For each sensor type, further specialization allows selecting the optimal balance between price and performance for the required operating voltage and temperature range, gain, resolution, input/output format, and qualification level. Renesas’ SSC ICs offer digital compensation of sensor offset, sensitivity, temperature drift, and nonlinearity in wide operational temperature ranges.
