With nothing but a space suit, helmet and parachute, Baumgartner is aiming to jump from a balloon at a higher altitude than anyone ever has — 120,000 feet (about 23 miles), more than three times the cruising altitude of the average airliner.
The Maxim Integrated MAX44009 is the industry's lowest power ambient light sensor with analog to digital converter (ADC). The Maxim Integrated MAX44009 ambient light sensor features an operating current of less than 1µA and an ultra-wide 22-bit dynamic range of 0.045 lux to 188,000 lux.
Bourns Model EMS22 are non-contacting rotary magnetic encoders with a Hall Effect application-specific standard product (ASSP) capable of producing four distinct output waveforms. These waveforms include 2-bit quadrature up to 256 Pulses per Revolution (PPR), Step/Direction up to 512 PPR, Pulse-Width Modulated (PWM) output with 1024 positions, and Absolute with 1024 positions.
The TFPTL Series from Vishay/Dale features radial-leaded, positive temperature coefficient (PTC) thermistors with nickel thin film elements and two tinned copper clad steel wire leads. The TFPTL Series offers positive temperature coefficients of + 4110 ppm/K, fast response time of less than 2 s, and high stability over a wide temperature range from -55ºC to + 150ºC.
