Triad Semiconductor’s TS8000 is a complete ultrasonic receiver analog front end. Working with an ultrasonic transducer the TS8000 converts ultrasonic sound waves into a digital data representation of the ultrasonic pulses striking the transducer. The TS8000 provides digitally configurable noise filtering, gain amplification, and carrier data slicing of the weak ultrasonic input signals. The TS8000 is configured by a two-wire bus that shares the data pin of the device.
The TS8000 is available in a tiny 16-bump wafer level chip scale package (WLCSP, 1.66mm x 1.66mm, 0.4mm pitch). The device operates from a 3.3V nominal supply input and is specified over a 0C to +85C operating temperature range.
Ultrasonic liquid level measurement in very small physical spaces can be easily accomplished with the TS8000.
The TS8000’s small size (1.66mm per side) enables adding distance measurement to small consumer and IoT applications.
Multiple TS8000s can be used to triangulate location adding tracking and object avoidance to drones and robots.
The TS8000 can be used to detect room entry, proximity to light switches and occupancy for smart building automation applications.
