Sensirion presents the advanced EK-P4 evaluation kit, which simplifies the evaluation of Sensirion’s differential pressure sensors even further. The kit combines all the features required for test measurement, including a flow element, so first measurements can be made cost-effectively and exceptionally quickly. The evaluation kit consists of a USB stick connected to a PCB on […]
Having two sensing functions in a single package is advantageous for space- and power-constrained designs. With its ENS210, a highly accurate relative humidity and temperature sensor IC, ams AG achieves these goals. The sensor has a digital temperature output in Kelvin, accurate to a maximum ±0.2°C over the range 0°C to 70°C and a digital […]
At the MEMS & Sensors Group Executive Conference in Scottsdale, AZ, Roger Grace, President of Roger Grace Associates, a MEMS Marketing Consultancy, discusses the ongoing activity for technology alternatives to silicon sensors. Silicon can be about 50% of the cost of a sensor with packaging and testing being the other 50%. Other materials such as […]
At the MEMS & Sensors Group Executive Conference in Scottsdale, AZ, Matt Crowley, the CEO of Vesper Technologies, demonstrates his company’s wake on sound MEMS microphone. The VM1010 prototype uses the piezoelectric MEMS microphone as a piezoelectric energy harvester for saving power with an always on voice mode. For more information, click here.
At the MEMS & Sensors Group Executive Conference in Scottsdale, AZ, Dave Horsley, Co-Founder and CTO at Chirp Microsystems demonstrates the capabilities of his company’s sonar on a chip (an ultrasound transceiver and microprocessor in a single 8-pin LGA package). The chip uses time of flight measurements for accurately detecting gesture recognition and proximity while […]
Printable sensors have emerged as a new classification for sensing technologies. With its Quantum Tunneling Composite (QTC®) technology, Peratech has a screen printable polymer-based ink in opaque and transparent versions for sensing force/touch. The electrical resistance of a QTC sensor changes based on changes in applied force – more force reduces the resistance. Quantum tunneling […]
Claiming an industry first, CMOSIS, a member of the ams AG group, CMV50000 global shutter CMOS image sensor offers a resolution of 48 Mpixels. With its global shutter…
The Human Vision Components (HVC)-P2 module has a maximum recognition speed 10 times that of the previous model, which was introduced in March 2014. The HVC-P2 is offered…
New low-pressure sensors, called the BLC Series, work over pressure ranges of ±1 in. H2O through ±30 in. H2O and 15 PSIA. The BLC Series basic low-pressure compact sensor…
Interchangeability over a broad temperature range that eliminates the need to individually calibrate or provide circuit compensation for part-to-part variability is a key design attribute for many sensors….
