PTC-04, Daughterboard Selection Guide Datasheet by Melexis Technologies NV

The sea turtle’s ability to locate its
home beach is truly remarkable.
As with many migratory animals,
sea turtles accomplish this feat by
measuring the Earth’s magnetic
field. A close link with our variety of
magnetic sensors. The sea turtle’s shield
ensures safety at all times, just like our
products do. Amust for an important
player in the automotive industry.

(3) PWM Output.
(4) PSI5 Output.
UI tool for development PTC-04 programming tool
Example C# code for automation
The Melexis family of programmable sensors are designed to be integrated into
an application and then programmed. Programming allows for setting the various
operating modes inside the chip and for performing an end-of-line calibration which
reduces or removes residual error due to mechanical tolerances for example.
To program the sensor the PTC-04 (programmed through connector) programming
tool is used. The PTC-04 connects between a PC and the sensor to be programmed
and manages the conversion of commands from the PC to the sensor. An easy to
use UI is provided for every product allowing for easy development. For production
environments, a DLL is also provided that can be called from Labview, Visual Basic, C#,
or any language that supports ActiveX COM libraries thus enabling the automation of
the calibration process.
The PTC-04 programmer is designed for efficient, precise calibration of the Melexis
families of programmable ICs and can be easily adapted to a standard PC and to
an application module to allow calibration of programmable sensor ICs within the
operating environment.
The PTC-04 programmer contains its own programmable power supply and
measurement circuitry. It’s similar to a standard EEPROM programmer, but adds
many special features such as 16-bit voltage and current measurement capability, and
configuration options that will accommodate users from the prototyping phase directly
into production. APC is required to load software to the programmer and control the
functions of the programmer.
Communication is done through a standard RS-232 null modem cable to a COM
port of the PC or via USB. The PC requires no custom configuration, allowing the
programmer to be used with any PC with a COM port speed of 115.2kbs or a standard
USB 1.1 or USB 2.0 (Type A) interface.
