Gas Sensor based on Mid-infrared MEMS Design - VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland has developed a series of new mid-infrared spectrometers, which have been integrated into compact gas sensors, branded as “GasSensors”. The spectrometers are based on MEMS-tunable Fabry-Perot filter spectral sensors. The first demonstrator sensors, which were shown recently at BiOS and Photonics West in San Francisco, are now available for detecting and analyzing low levels of hydrocarbon gases in the spectrum between 3 and 3.7 microns ...

Abstract - This paper presents the design of a general purpose gas sensor interface used in toxic gas control systems. The system integrates a large number of complex analog, digital and periphery functions in a single IC, offering on one hand the advantage of higher reliability, higher rejection of EMI interferences and reduced power consumption and a high flexibility in interfacing with a wide variety of gas sensors and microprocessor families on the other. Experimental results on a prototype chip, realized in a 1.2 m CMOS technology, shows that the proposed IC represents a very low cost solution for efficient processing of the signal detected by a generic gas sensor.

Abstract - This paper describes an integrated microstructure used to control temperature in a gas sensor system. An innovative technological approach has been pursued to integrate gas sensors on silicon substrate, compatible with IC fabrication. A mixed analog-digital electronic interface controls temperature operation, to maximize the sensitivity to substances to be detected.
