The dawn of a new design philosophy for electronics
The University of Surrey has unveiled a device with unique functionality that could signal the dawn of a new design philosophy for electronics, including next-generation wearables and eco-disposable sensors.
Photodiode black SMD packages eliminate side illumination
Now in stock at New Yorker Electronics are two new surface-mount Automotive Grade silicon PIN photodiodes from Vishay Optoelectronics.
Proximity sensor designed for narrow-bezel smartphones
The TMD2755 proximity sensor module from ams is now being shipped by distributor Mouser Electronics.
IR sensors detect red, green, blue, clear and IR light
New Yorker Electronics has released a new sensor series from Vishay in two different body types.
ZF increase e-bike speed sensor portfolio
With the increasing popularity and growing trend of e-bikes, bicycle system suppliers have set goals to optimise power and performance of their drive systems. In order to support the driver in the best possible way, sensors are needed to deliver the required data and therefore adapt the engine's power support. An essential component is the ZF e-bike speed sensor for measuring the current speed.
Sensing solutions that enable emerging IoT use cases
Following the introduction of mobile and automotive ultra-wideband (UWB) sensing solutions, NXP has expanded its portfolio to include new UWB ICs. Trimension SR040 and SR150 ICs are optimized to enable new IoT use cases such as smart locks and real-time location system (RTLS) tags, delivering ‘relative position’ with a very high level of accuracy.
First multi-zone time-of-flight sensor for smartphones
STMicroelectronics has revealed that the Samsung Galaxy Note20 Ultra uses ST sensing and control technology, including its multi-zone time-of-flight sensor, enhancing the smartphones’ features with minimal noise and package size. The Galaxy Note20 similarly leverages ST’s MEMS pressure sensors, inertial measurement units, and EEPROMs.
Fast and accurate inventory with 2128P RFID Sled
Datalogic has increased the value of the innovative wireless charging PDA Memor 10, with the UHF 2128P RFID hand held reader, bringing reading, writing and localisation capabilities. Now workers can complete a faster and more accurate inventory, with extended nominal read range up to nine meters, due to a 34 dBm of maximum RF output power.
OV64A image sensor with large optical format
OmniVision Technologies has announced the OV64A image sensor, offering 64 megapixel (MP) resolution with the largest pixel size in its class, at 1.0 micron, along with a class-leading optical format of 1/1.34”. Its large optics and high resolution provide premium low light performance for the wide and ultrawide main cameras in high end smartphones.
TMR magnetic sensors offer enhanced accuracy
Murata is now including in its portfolio advanced 1D linear and 2D angular sensor devices from Crocus Technology based on tunnel magnetic resistance (TMR) technology.
