Linear Systems Paper Gives a Description of Lowest Noise Amplification for Sensor Signal Chains

Piezoelectric Element Preamps, Hydrophones, Accelerometers, Photodiode Preamps, and other forms of sensors whose separate components are uniquely capable of performing important early amplification of sensor signals are included.

FREMONT, CA: Linear Systems, a world-class producer of ultra-low noise JFETS and semiconductors, has unveiled an application note on creating low-noise signal chains for military sensors.

The paper, "Military Higher-Performance Sensor Signal Chains," provides engineers with solutions for producing better-performing signal chains in sensitive applications by combining ultra-low-noise discrete components with an IC-based circuit.

Piezoelectric Element Preamps, Hydrophones, Accelerometers, Photodiode Preamps, and other forms of sensors whose separate components are uniquely capable of performing important early amplification of sensor signals are included.

"Better sensor systems enable earlier threat detection and more effective countermeasures, " Linear Systems President Tim McCune stated. "Our ultra-low-noise JFETS enable designers to build more sensitivity and capability into their sensor systems. This improved capability translates directly into greater value to the end users of these sensors."

Linear Systems is a precision, high-performance, small-signal discrete semiconductor designer, producer, and supplier. It was created in 1987 in Silicon Valley and manufactures ultra-low-noise, monolithic dual and single JFETs and bipolar transistors, as well as high-speed DMOS switches, ultra-low leakage diodes, small-signal MOSFETs, and BiFET amplifiers. These components have been included in world-class products in the following categories: Test & Measurement, Audio, Scientific Optical, Military Sensor; Industrial Controls; and Hybrids.
