Microbridge Technologies Announces Availability of New Electrically Adjustable Resistor Family



    
    Low Power, Low TC re-adjustable resistors (Rejustors(TM)) Provide
    Integrated Calibration Systems for Analog Circuit Designs and Production
    

    ROSEMONT, Ill., June 11 /CNW/ -- SENSORS EXPO & CONFERENCE -- Microbridge
Technologies, Inc., the leader in passive, analog precision calibration
products (Rejustors), today announced the availability of a new family of low
power, Low TC re-adjustable resistors designed to compensate and calibrate
precision analog circuits. Microbridge will be demonstrating how to calibrate
Rejustors in high volume applications at the Sensors Expo & Conference, booth
#726.
    Microbridge has previously shown its capability to calibrate individual
electronic devices such as voltage references, sensors or circuits needing
adjustments with passive, electrically adjustable resistors.  Today's
demonstration will emphasize how to calibrate devices and circuits for mass
production.  The new Rejustors can be used with off-the-shelf National
Instruments hardware (NI-cDAQ 9172) to calibrate a wide range of circuits in
parallel.
    "There are numerous solutions on the market to improve accuracy and
precision of analog circuits," said Bob Frostholm, vice president, Marketing
and Strategic Alliances at Microbridge. "Each existing solution has some set
of drawbacks that Rejustors can alleviate such as limited temperature range,
limited maximum frequency of operation, requiring power, requiring a laser,
and more. Rejustors offer high temperature operation to 125 degrees Celsius or
higher, high frequency operation in excess of 2GHz, requires no power to
operate in circuit, has no wiper resistance, and is adjustable to precision
levels 0.1% or better."

    
    Applications
    
    Microbridge Rejustors have a wide variety of applications. They are
suitable for precision analog compensation in military, aerospace and
satellite applications. Automotive applications range from optical systems to
engine sensors and tire-pressure monitor. As a sealed device, the Rejustor is
well suited for operation in harsh and demanding environments. Industrial
applications range from simple calibration of power supplies to calibration of
sensors of many kinds including photo transistors, pressure sensors and
magnetic proximity sensors. Consumer applications include LCD screen
adjustments and timing devices. In medical & science, Microbridge calibration
techniques are ideal for use in catheter applications. In Semiconductors,
Microbridge's CMOS based technology enables integration of Rejustor
calibration and compensation devices for designs that require better precision
than fuses, digital potentiometers or laser trimming can achieve.

    
    Pricing & Availability
    
    The new devices are available off the shelf through Microbridge's
worldwide distributor, Future Electronics. All members of the Low Power family
are priced at $0.99 at 1,000 piece quantities. Each QFN package contains two
Rejustor elements (R1, R2) making it easier to implement divider networks
where the TC of the two resistors must be equally matched.  For sales enquire,
