Key Document


Fully evaluate the PGA460 ultrasonic sensor signal conditioner with the BOOSTXL-PGA460 (+ MSP430F5529LP). The PGA460 is an integrated ultrasonic front-end with a digital signal processor that outputs time-of-flight data, echo width and amplitude information. The driver strength is configurable by a current limiting the transformer, and the receiver can be tuned to filter and process returned echo data for post-measurement analysis. The associated PGA460 EVM GUI can be used to customize, configure and control the ultrasonic setup, and monitor the performance of the resulting ultrasonic activity.
