So far I've found two chips that could do the job. Neither of them are cheap.

1) Tamagawa AU6802N1 "Smartcoder" resolver to digital
2) Analog Devices AD2S1210 10-bit R/D converter with reference oscillator

Both are made for vehicle reliability and temperature ranges

I guess either method will require a small daughter board. Both IC's are high pin count (48) surface mount chips that will require a bit of support circuitry. Making a sine wave generator and envelope filter will require a bunch of analog stuff.

I've gotten most of the way through a envelope filter and sine wave generator, if you'd like.

Other than UPS, can you think of a cheap method of shipping a 100lb thingeee?

I would very much appreciate borrowing one of those MGRs. It wouldn't need to be this week or next week, as I would have to make a board to deal with the resolver issue. Can you calculate what shipping would be?

OK! I searched for the resolver to encoder chip, and I can't find your link or p/n anywhere. Could you repost it?

edit: I found an envelope detector which seems simple. It involves a capacitor though. Care would have to be taken so that it doesn't cause too much lag in the detection.

edit again: It could be made to work, but the chip would be better.
