SMI (Silicon Microstructures, Inc.) is proud to present a newly-developed Gage Pressure Sensor. This SM5G Series contains the AccuStableTM SM30 sensor. The SM30 MEMS piezoresistive pressure sensing die allows long-time stability levels for pressure ranges between 5 and 80 PSI.
Silicone is so soft and flexible that it is easily deformed by the pressure of a finger. Researchers at Fraunhofer have recently created sensors made from this flexible material, making it easier to steplessly control devices.
Honeywell today released a new series of heavy duty pressure transducers for facility heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) and refrigeration equipment. The new PX3 Series transducers enable industrial HVAC and refrigeration equipment manufacturers to better monitor system pressure and performance, which can potentially help to reduce energy costs associated with these systems.
Heavy city traffic contributes significantly to air pollution and health problems such as asthma, but UT Dallas researchers think another kind of traffic — data traffic — might help citizens better cope with pollution.
SMI (Silicon Microstructures, Inc.), a subsidiary of Elmos, is proud to introduce the SM3041 fully digital, medium pressure MEMS differential and gauge sensor family. The sensor has better than 1% initial accuracy and less than 1% accuracy shift over life (1% shift over 1000hr HTOL at 150C).
Everyday materials found in the kitchen, such as aluminum foil, sticky note paper, sponges and tape, have been used by a team of electrical engineers from KAUST to develop a low-cost sensor that can detect external stimuli, including touch, pressure, temperature, acidity and humidity.
Smart skin that can respond to external stimuli could have important applications in medicine and robotics. Using only items found in a typical household, researchers have created multi-sensor artificial skin that's capable of sensing pressure, temperature, humidity, proximity, pH, and air flow.
Pressure measurements enable a newly developed fall detector to “observe” falls that current sensors do not register, thus improving safety for older people who live at home.
Integrated Device Technology, Inc.® (IDT®) today introduced an energy-efficient 24-bit sensor signal conditioner (SSC) IC designed for consumer barometric pressure and thermopile sensors. With an integrated 26-bit digital signal processor (DSP) for linearization and calibration functions, the ZSSC3224 is optimized for high-resolution consumer, industrial, white goods and medical applications, and can also benefit mobile products such as phones and tablets.
MEMSIC Inc. will be demonstrating their latest MEMS based pressure sensor at the upcoming AHR 2016 show in Orlando, Florida, which begins January 25, 2016.
