Software-Configurable Analog I/O Heralds More Compact and Convenient Calibrators

In this design solution, we review the features and specifications of typical examples of calibration equipment. We then consider the features of a new reference design based on a software configurable analog (SWIO) IC that potentially sets the benchmark for a new generation of ultra-portable, lightweight calibrators that still provide the functionality and performance of existing offerings.In this design solution, we review the features and specifications of typical examples of calibration equipment.
