The current-to-voltage converter converts current captured from the sensor system to fully differential output voltage, ready to be amplified. Highly linear current to voltage conversion is achieved by using Transimpendance Amplifier (TIA) architecture with 8 current ranges and specially designed built-in offset cancellation. The output signals are ready for further analogue signal processing and analogue-to-digital conversion.
The Current-to-Voltage Converter is ideally suited for a broad range of devices with sensor systems where the generic information about the phenomenon to be measured - light or other physical or chemical or electrochemical appearance - passes the first electrical conversion to the current. The IP implementation enables easy further System on Chip (SoC) integration of follow up functions.
