Multispectral sensor ICs revolutionise spectral analysis

Multispectral sensor ICs revolutionise spectral analysis
ams AG launched the world’s first series of cost-effective multispectral sensor-on-chip solutions, opening the way for a new generation of spectral analyzers for consumer and industrial applications. Offered in a small 4.5 x 4.4mm land grid array package, the ultra-low power AS7262 visible range sensor and AS7263 NIR sensor each provide six calibrated spectral channels.

Wearable sensors can tell when you are getting ill

Wearable sensors can tell when you are getting ill
  Wearable sensors that monitor heart rate, activity, skin temperature and other variables can reveal a lot about what is going on inside a person, including the onset of infection, inflammation and even insulin resistance, according to a study by researchers at the Stanford University School of Medicine.

Inclination sensors show durability in the field

Inclination sensors show durability in the field
Four new series of Murata inclination sensors that are claimed to have the best shock durability on the MEMS market are now available in Europe at TTI. The inclinometers help determine the 3D position of agriculture and construction equipment when operating in rough outdoor environments, as well as high accuracy levelling and inclination measurement instruments and platform levelling and stabilisation applications.

Hall-effect sensors used for Mars Rover robotic arm

Hall-effect sensors used for Mars Rover robotic arm
TT Electronics has announced that its sensors will be used in the NASA mission to the planet Mars in 2020. The robustness of the company’s Hall-effect sensors enables them to withstand the harsh environments found on Mars. The Hall-effect sensors from TT Electronics are key components in NASA’s new Mars 2020 Rover that will be landing on the surface of the red planet in 2021. These sensors detect magnetic fields in motors that control the speed and movement of the robotic arm of the Mars Rover.

3D antibody arrays offer better sensing

3D antibody arrays offer better sensing
Exploiting a process known as molecular self-assembly, MIT chemical engineers have built three-dimensional arrays of antibodies that could be used as sensors to diagnose diseases such as malaria or tuberculosis. These sensors, which contain up to 100 stacked layers of antibodies, offer much more sensitivity than existing antibody-based sensors, which have only a single layer of antibodies.

Full die redundancy included with linear Hall sensor IC

Full die redundancy included with linear Hall sensor IC
Incorporating full die redundancy with the added benefits of full diagnostics, the A1336 from Allegro Microsystems includes a combination of these two features, which allows for a higher level of diagnostics without interruption to the application (where diagnostics would otherwise render a die temporarily unresponsive), and also allows the controller to know which die to trust when the two outputs do not agree.
