Touch-Interface Solutions have Integrated Haptic Controller Drivers and Proximity Sensing
Maxim has introduced the MAX11810 and MAX11811, the first touch-interface systems with integrated 4-wire touch-screen controllers, haptic controller drivers, and infrared-based proximity sensing. Designed for applications flexibility, these devices can drive a DC motor directly or piezo elements using an external piezo driver. The MAX11800 and MAX11801 are register-map-compatible versions without haptic controller drivers and proximity sensing.
Silicon Pressure Sensors provide industry-leading total error band specification
Honeywell has introduced its TruStability Silicon Pressure Sensors comprised of the HSC (High Accuracy Silicon Ceramic) Series and SSC (Standard Accuracy Silicon Ceramic) Series that offer customers key benefits not found in other silicon pressure sensors currently available.
Bipolar Hall-Effect Magnetic Position Sensors
Honeywell has introduced its SS30AT Bipolar Hall-Effect Magnetic Position Sensor, a subminiature SOT-23 surface mount package that takes up less space on the printed circuit board (PCB). Honeywell has optimized the size of the integrated circuit, saving on manufacturing costs while still meeting customer requirements. These cost savings result in lower costs to customers. Available on tape and reel, the SS30AT often allows for automated pick-and-...
Honeywell - Small Force Sensors
Honeywell has introduced its smallest force sensor, the FSS-SMT Series, a low profile surface mount device that allows for automated assembly on a printed circuit board (PCB), often eliminating hand soldering and helping to reduce assembly costs. Cost-conscious customers will be attracted to the FSS-SMT Series because it provides all four points of the Wheatstone bridge sensing element that gives them the flexibility to customize and integrate th...
Wireless medical temperature sensor sets new standards for precision
Cambridge Temperature Concepts has designed a wireless temperature sensor that can measure body temperature to within a thousandth of a degree – current solutions typically have precision of a tenth of a degree. The coin sized unit also uses innovative power saving techniques to extend the battery life to in excess of six months rather than the usual life of a few days. The sensor’s unprecedented precision and long life open up many new app...
Pewatron - contactless angle sensors
The PWA range of contactless angle sensors from Pewatron feature an electrical angle up to 360° and 12 bit resolution and have been designed as a solution for industrial as well as mobile applications.
Inertial Aerosystems - low cost angular rate sensors
Inertial Aerosystems has announced the availability of a new range of low cost MEMS single axis angular rate sensors on a small P.C. board. Designated the LCG50 and manufactured by US based Systron Donner, the range consists of 3 models giving full scale ranges of 100 degrees per second, 250 degrees per second and 500 degrees per second. The sensor is a complete unit and requires only 5V DC power to deliver a high DC output voltage proportional...
Streaming Video Highlights Applications and Capabilities of Honeywell's SMART Position Sensor
To better inform engineers of the advantages of using its SMART Position Sensor, Honeywell has added a streaming video demonstration of these new sensors to its Web site (www.honeywell.com/sensing ). The video highlights the sensor's ability to improve safety, operational efficiency, reliability, and durability, and reduce total cost of ownership.
