Glass Break Detector

Description

Texas Instruments glass break detector designs demonstrate ways to minimize false alarms by allowing the detector to provide multiple reports of a glass break event in a short period of time while reducing overall current consumption. A glass break detector consists of an acoustic device (Microphone) to sense the specific high frequency tinkle of shattered glass, and two operational amplifiers to amplify the detected frequency and enable the ADC in the MSP430 to sample the signal.

With the need of extended battery life for standalone and wireless connectivity implementations, MSP430 microcontrollers with their low current consumption are an ideal fit for these applications. When making the wireless radio selection, range, network configuration and power consumption are important factors to consider. TI offers devices covering a wide range of wireless protocols, such as Wi-Fi®, Bluetooth, ZigBee, Sub-1GHz and other communication standards.
