The E524.1x with integrated microcontroller offer ultrasonic range detection with minimum component count. A single ultrasonic transducer with a center tapped transformer is directly driven with programmable 30kHz to 80kHz bursts. Supported transducers allow distance measuring from 15cm to 4m and beyond in extended range mode. The received echo signal is amplified and converted by an ADC. Digital filtering achieves excellent tracking with the sending frequency without external components or trimming. Optional temperature compensation is available through GPIO pins. An onboard EEPROM stores processed values of the oscillator/sending frequency, transmitted power and receiver sensitivity. Communication to an ECU is via a single-wire bus compatible with LIN 2.1. For ease of use, a System ROM is pre-programmed with application support routines. Available software examples cover threshold-based echo detection, a basic LIN stack and a complete USPA application example.
All ICs contain EEPROM. Options include LIN with SNPD (Slave Node Position Detection) and Range Extension.
