New and Innovative Sensor Technology Offers Unmatched Sensitivity for Differential Low Pressure Measurement


Sensortechnics’ new LBA series offers differential low pressure measurement with ranges of 250 and 500 Pa Full Scale. The LBA sensors perform fully analog on-chip CMOS signal conditioning to allow for linear and temperature compensated outputs with high differential pressure resolution of typ. 0.1 % and fast response times of typ. 1 ms. The LBA sensors feature superior sensitivity and offset stability. The devices are based on thermal flow measurement of gas through a micro-flow channel integrated within the sensor chip. This very narrow channel decreases the flow through the LBA sensor by several magnitudes compared to other flow-based pressure sensors. The extremely low gas flow ensures high immunity to dust contamination and condensation and allows the use of connecting tubes and input filters without the need to recalibrate or correct the output signal ...

High-Performance, Low-Power MEMS Gyroscope Enables Applications in Harsh Industrial Environments


NORWOOD - New applications for MEMS (micro-electro-mechanical systems) motion sensors are evolving in the industrial automation, medical, and instrumentation markets where much higher performance is required than is typically found in motion sensors designed for consumer applications. To address this growing demand for more accuracy, stability, and high vibration and shock resistance, Analog Devices, Inc. has developed the high-performance, low-power ADXRS450 iMEMS® gyroscope with digital output specifically for angular rate (rotational) sensing in harsh environments. Leveraging ADI’s previous three generations of industry-leading MEMS gyroscopes, this fourth-generation device features an advanced, differential quad-sensor design that enables it to operate accurately under intense shock and vibration conditions ...

Gas Sensor Chip Paving the Way to Autonomous e-Nose


Leuven, Belgium and Eindhoven, the Netherlands - June 7, 2010 - Imec and Holst Centre have developed very sensitive integrated sensing elements for gas detection. The polymer-coated microbridges in high-density arrays can detect ppm-level concentrations of vapors using on-chip integrated read-out techniques. The demonstrated technology is very suitable for miniaturization of electronic nose devices thanks to the low power consumption (<1 mW/bridge) and small form factor ...

Sensor Conditioner with Compensation and Analog Line Driver


iC-TW3 is a signal conditioner with a line driver for a wide range of sensor applications. Precision instrumentation amplifiers with differential voltage inputs service three channels; their gain and offset correction can be configured individually. The gain is such that the setup can be adjusted to suit sensor signals in the millivolt range with -3 dB to 59 dB. An integrated regulator automatically triggers the dynamic gain and offset correction. Whether the temperature is measured internally or externally, gain and offset correction can be compensated for the individual temperature behavior of the sensor using an interpolation table ...
