Links to electronic circuits, electronic schematics, designs for engineers, hobbyists, students & inventors:

Acceleration meter for cars -    NOTE:  This  - Page is available in Greek and English language.  This circuit it is count the acceleration from -1000mg up to +1000mg.  Can be used in lot of applications like cars, elevators, ramps and more.   __ Designed by Michael Karaoglanidis

Acceleration Sensor Network -  Data acquisition (DAQ) and data logging: Smart-its Add-On Board with Multiplexers and attachable 3D Acceleration Sensor Nodes __ Designed by Nicky Kern

Accelerometer -  A handheld vibration meter, to measure how much those poorly balanced machines are shaking!  __ Designed by Manfred Mornhinweg

Accelerometer Amplifier with DC Servo -  The feedback integrator amplifies the 100 Megohm feedback resistance to behave like about 1Gigohm, extending the low-frequency response downward by about an order of magnitude.  __ Linear Technology/Analog Devices App Note, Jun 21, 2010

Accelerometer output gives temperature info -  11/19/98 EDN Design Ideas:  NOTE:  File contain several designs.  Scroll to find this one.  The ADXL202 dual-axis micromachined accelerometer from Analog Devices (Norwood, MA) is appropriate for high-resolution applications.  in these applications, you sometimes need to know the ambient temperature for control purposes or for circuit-drift compensation.  The scheme in Figure 1 offers a novel way to convey temperature information to the system µC without the need for an A/D converter or any additional i/O pins. __ Circuit Design by Harvey Weinberg, Analog Devices Inc, Cambridge, MA

Accelerometer Schematic -  Below is a rough schematic of the layout of the accelerometer PC board looking from the component side.  The microcontroller is an Atmel AT89S8252, an 8051 clone.  This microcontroller is in-circuit programmable using an SPI interface.  The SPI pins are also used to drive the MMC.  To permit the dual use there is a jumper block (located below the 74AHC244, marked "P" __ Designed by Radio Amateur Society of Norwich

Accelerometer Signal Conditioner -  A piezoelectric accelerometer responds to any physical movement by generating a charge proportional to the acceleration of the movement.  This sensor has a capacitance of 750pF which produces a charge of 60pC per g of gravitational force.  This charge is transferred to the 1000pF feedback capacitor for an output of 60mV/g.  __ Linear Technology/Analog Devices App Note, Mar 16, 2010

gyro / accelerometer combo sensor -  in building a balancing robot you need a gyroscope unit and an accelerometer unit in order to get it to balance.  But I also wanted it to be reasonably low in cost with high performance and easily interfaced to a MCU.  Some of the other solutions are prohibitively expensive, even if they may work well.  Also the solution I had in mind had to be fairly small and use up little space and use up little power too __ Designed by Earl W. Bollinger

Piezo Film Sensor Serves as an Accelerometer -  Accelerometers are used in instrumentation applications to measure a change in velocity with respect to time or an inclination (the angle between an object’s vertical axis and a line perpendicular to a plane tangent to the earth’s__ 

Scaling ADXL50 accelerometer output -  The ADXL50 accelerometer provides as its output a voltage level which varies in proportion to the amount of acceleration experienced along its sensitive axis.  it is calibrated such that under no acceleration the output will be 1.8 volts.  Furthermore, an acceleration of 50g (where 1g is the acceleration due to gravity) will cause a voltage swing __ Designed by Tim Stilson

Switched capacitor IC controls feedback loop -  02/17/00 EDN Design Ideas:  You can implement a simple control loop with a constant setpoint over a wide range of control by using a switched-capacitor filter.  The circuit controls motor speed over 1 to 200 Hz or 60 to 12, 000 rpm.  in Figu __ Circuit Design by Dave Sargent, IBM Research, San Jose, CA

Switched-Capacitor IC & Reference Form Elegant –48 to +10V Converter -  04/24/03  EDN Design Ideas:  A system designer must almost always face a trade-off in choosing the right part for an application.  The trade-off usually involves performance, price, and function.  An example is the issue of powering circuits from a telecom-voltage source.  Telecom systems almost exclusively use high-potential negative rails, such as -48V __ Circuit Design by Wallace Ly, National Semiconductor, Santa Clara, CA

Switched-capacitor converter suits portable applications -  08/17/00 EDN Design Ideas:   Basic switched converters generally provide one simple voltage conversion.  The most common application for these circuits are to double, invert, and sometimes halve the input voltage.  Because they are unregulated and have no stability problems, you can configure them to perform multiple conversions as well.   __ Circuit Design by Clinton Jensen, National Semiconductor, Santa Clara, CA
