Bullet Smart Sensor Systems Design for Smartphones, Tablets and IoT: New Advanced Design Approach:

     A new tutorial at SENSORDEVICES' 2015 Conference (23-28 August 2015 - Venice, Italy)





Modern mobile devices market is a high growth and potentially huge market. The growing number of smart connected devices has resulted in an increase in the demand for the IoT worldwide: 25 billion devices are expected to be connected to the internet by 2015 and 50 billion by 2020, as predicted by Cisco's IBSG. IoT devices are focused on sensing and actuating of physical environment. While the IoT represents the convergence in advances miniaturization, wireless connectivity, increased data storage capacity and batteries, the IoT wouldn’t be possible without sensors. Sensors detect and measure changes in physical world and they are necessary to turn billions of objects into data-generating “things” that can report on their status, and in some cases, interact with their environment. A common requirement for IoT end nodes is the need for small size since these devices are typically constrained to a very small footprint.


The tutorial is devoted to an advanced, novel digital sensor systems design for smartphones, tablets and IoT. Coming technological limitations, and challenges will be outlined, and new design approach for such mobile devices will be described in details.


The design approach is based a smart system integration and a novel Series of integrated circuits - Universal Sensors and Transducers Interface (USTI-MOB). It allows to eliminate existing technological limitations and lets to create various multisensor systems with high metrological performance quicker and easily to make mobile devices smarter. It will drastically increase the number of sensors, which can be embedded into modern mobile devices and IoT.


The process of miniaturization and smart system integration based on the novel design approach boost the creation of multichannel, multifunction (multiparameter) one-chip smart sensors and combo sensors arrays. The integration of the USTI-MOB into sensor systems has the potential to greatly simplify the design of the system and contribute to further increasing of system level integration, flexibility and functionality. This tutorial is suitable for engineers and researchers who design and investigate various digital and intelligent sensors, data acquisition, and measurement systems for different applications. It should be also useful for digital sensors manufacturers, graduate and post graduate students.
