Sensirion Launches New Digital Temperature Sensor


Following the successful market launch of the SHT2x family of humidity and temperature sensors, Sensirion is now launching a sensor designed exclusively for temperature measurement. The new STS21 temperature sensor is based on the same chip as the SHT2x family and is housed in a tiny DFN package measuring only 3x3 mm. This makes the sensor ideal for use in applications where only very limited space is available. It also delivers outstanding performance and remarkably high accuracy of ±0.22 °C over the temperature range of 5 to 60 °C, combined with very low power consumption – an especially important consideration for battery-operated devices ...

14-Bit Capacitive Sensor Conditioning IC Raises Accuracy, Linearity, and Temperature for Pressure Sensors


ZMD AG (ZMDI) has expanded its family of capacitive sensor signal conditioning devices with the wide-dynamic-range ZSSC3123 integrated circuit (IC). The chip delivers 14-bit resolution and 0.25 % accuracy over a wide range of sensor capacitances and temperatures. Target applications include low power battery driven sensor applications, sensors for humidity, weight scales, load and compression sensing, as well as tension control. Capacitive sensors are often favored for their small size and lower power consumption. The ZSSC3123, designed for low-power operation, complements these features and provides to designers an optimal solution for their system designs. The device is particularly suited for MEMS-based sensor elements, such as pressure sensors for hydraulic control systems, humidity sensors, and liquid level gauges ...
