How Digital Well Being Apps Are Empowering Patients

For high-end absolute encoders, which have evolved from providing 16 bits, to twenty, to 24 bits and beyond, serial networks are a defacto normal because the parallel wire approach for parallel encoders is simply too unwieldy. For positioning movement management applications, one feedback device, the incremental optical encoder with quadrature output, has been king of the hill for a protracted time. With low price and ‘good-enough’ decision, this encoder dominates today’s motion management marketplace by unit quantity. But in the last ten years, there has been an explosion of recent encoder sensing applied sciences together with, equally importantly, new strategies to send that position knowledge to the movement controller.
