DigiPot prototyping starts

digipot-1Our first test for the comfortINA starts – controlling the amplification of an instrumentation amplifier by a switched resistor. The DigiPot uses two low-resistance analog switches (ADG451) and an 8-bit shift register. The shift register is used to simplify external connections to a 2-wire serial bus (DATA & CLOCK). On board LM317L/LM337L reduces the external +/-18V voltage to +/-15V. For the tests we will use our platINA board and the control will be handled by an Raspberry Pi.
