The MLX90326 can be used with almost any type of resistive bridge sensor without the need of any additional signal conditioning.
The MLX90326 provides amplification, calibration and temperature compensation for virtually all kinds of resistive bridge type sensors including pressure transducers, strain gauges, force sensors and magnetic sensors. Melexis “Programmable Through Connector” concept for high-volume implementations, enables programming in the production environment post assembly.
The differential input signal is offset compensated and amplified to achieve the desired output voltage. With a coarse gain calibration the MLX90326 can easily accommodate sensor output spans in the 1.8mV/V to 63mV/V range to achieve 4 V output span. Sensor output offsets up to 97.2mV/V (depending on the sensor output span and on the desired output offset) can be compensated with the coarse offset calibration to achieve an output offset in the 0.5V to 4.5V range.
