Technique produces wearable GaN gas sensors

Technique produces wearable GaN gas sensors
A transfer technique based on thin sacrificial layers of boron nitride could allow high-performance gallium nitride gas sensors to be grown on sapphire substrates and then transferred to metallic or flexible polymer support materials. The technique could facilitate the production of low-cost wearable, mobile and disposable sensing devices for a wide range of environmental applications.

Smart capacitive sensing enables optimisation for speed

Smart capacitive sensing enables optimisation for speed
ams has released a new configurable capacitive sensing front end named the PCap04, which gives sensor manufacturers the ability to balance speed and resolution to match their design requirements. When optimised for speed, the PCap04 can capture and digitise up to 50,000 sensor measurements per second. When sampling at a slower rate to optimise for precision, the PCap04 can achieve a measurement resolution of 8aF.

Global shutter image sensor works in all light conditions

Global shutter image sensor works in all light conditions
A new 1/4-inch, 1.0MP (1,280Hx800V) CMOS digital image sensor has been introduced by ON Semiconductor which achieves what it claims to be industry leading levels of performance. The new sensor captures clean, accurate images with no artifacts in both bright and low light conditions. Its high shutter efficiency and signal-to-noise ratio minimise ghosting and noise effects improving overall image quality.

MPUs support digital encoder interface for AC servo applications

MPUs support digital encoder interface for AC servo applications
  Supplier of advanced semiconductor solutions, Renesas Electronics, has announced a new solution package for its RZ/T1 Group of microprocessors (MPUs) supporting HIPERFACE DSL digital encoder interface for AC servo applications. The support of HIPERFACE DSL for RZ/T1 reduces the customer’s system bill-of-materials (BOM) cost and enables faster time-to-market.

Proximity sensors handle extreme environments

Proximity sensors handle extreme environments
The IHM Series Aerospace Proximity Sensors benefit from Honeywell’s 30 years expertise in designing proximity sensors for defense and commercial aircraft. They are now available in Europe through TTI. The sensors reduce downtime and maintenance costs by detecting more internal failure modes accurately and reliably in extreme environments than competitive products on the market, thanks to a proprietary circuit.
