Plessey uses its EPIC sensor technology to create a heart monitor in a wristwatch

Plessey uses its EPIC sensor technology to create a heart monitor in a wristwatch
Plessey Semiconductors has designed a heart rate monitor demonstration using its award-winning EPIC sensor technology, which is the same size as a wristwatch and does not require a chest strap or second sensor at the end of a cable that could be easily lost or damaged. This reference design shows that simple and effective personal monitoring of electrocardiograph (ECG) signals can be as easy as taking a pulse measurement.

Plessey releases new EPIC sensor for movement sensing applications

Plessey releases new EPIC sensor for movement sensing applications
Plessey Semiconductors has announced that it has released the latest version of the Electric Potential Integrated Circuit (EPIC) sensor specifically tailored to detect movement. This version of the EPIC has been optimised for security, switching and gaming applications. By detecting changes in the electric field the EPIC sensor provides an output to a relay to act as a simple non-touch electric switch. The EPIC sensor can be used in both proximity mode or to detect specific kinds of movement as a limited gesture recognition device. As the EPIC sensor does not need line of sight and can even detect movement through walls, it can also be used to replace, or as an adjunct to, a passive infra-red (PIR) sensor in a variety of applications including security motion detectors.

Plessey Semiconductors to announce its first IC design using breakthrough Electric Potential sensor technology at Sensors Expo

Plessey Semiconductors to announce its first IC design using breakthrough Electric Potential sensor technology at Sensors Expo
Plessey Semiconductors announced that it will be demonstrating its Electric Potential Integrated Circuit (EPIC) sensor technology at Sensors Expo (Chicago, USA June 6-8 2011). The EPIC sensor is a completely new area of sensor technology that measures changes in an electric field in a similar way to a magnetometer detecting changes in a magnetic field. The EPIC sensor, which requires no physical or resistive contact to make measurements, will enable innovative new products to be made such as medical scanners that are simply held close to a patient’s chest to obtain a detailed ECG reading or devices that can ‘see’ through walls. The sensor can be integrated on a chip with other features such as data converters, digital signal processing and wireless communications capability.

Plessey Semiconductors announces development of 8-inch SiGe BiCMOS technology to expand RF capability

Plessey Semiconductors today announced it has commenced the development of a 0.35 micron silicon germanium (SiGe) BiCMOS process technology on its 8-inch line at its Plymouth, England semiconductor manufacturing facility. As part of its strategy of developing its three core product lines of sensors, RF components and power management devices it was decided that a bespoke SiGe BiCMOS process was required. The products manufactured on this process will take advantage of having a 70GHz, 2.5V breakdown voltage architecture together with a 40GHz 5V breakdown voltage architecture on the same substrate. The process will also include a range of analogue and high performance passive components including Schottky diodes, varactors, high Q inductors and MIM capacitors.
