BiSS or SSI sensors can be connected easily to a PC. The USB port supplies the adapter as well as the connected device. The BiSS/SSI communication is accomplished by the galvanically isolated RS422 transceiver with clock rates of up to 10 Mbit/sec. The optional plug enables I2C or SPI communication. An external power supply can also be connected to deliver other voltages or higher currents. The PC-USB adapter can be accessed with different software and APIs.
