Design Support


This document introduces all of the necessary design and environmental considerations when developing and optimizing an ultrasonic sensor module using the PGA460. Ultrasonic modules behave differently across various temperatures, transmission mediums, targets, and transducers types. Building the module, therefore, requires an understanding of the different ultrasonic components available for pairing, and a feasibility analysis of how external factors will impact the minimum and maximum detectable range. The PGA460 device can accommodate a variety of use-cases, and is able to provide feedback to compensate or retune the system for potential variation.
