Small sensor device developed to detect cancer from breath

Small sensor device developed to detect cancer from breath
SniffPhone, currently in its prototype phase, enables early diagnosis of gastric cancer from a person’s exhaled breath. The new method may revolutionise cancer screening all over the world. VTT has participated to the development of SniffPhone prototype and concept with nine other project partners. SniffPhone is a small sensor device developed for cancer screening that can be attached to a smartphone. In practice, the user holds the device in front of his or her mouth and exhales onto the sensor to give breath sample.

Non-dispersive infrared spectroscopy for gas monitoring

Non-dispersive infrared spectroscopy for gas monitoring
The ongoing technical advancements in the field of respiratory gas monitoring has seen the use of sensors that measure the amount of CO2, N2O, O2 and the five potent inhaled anaesthetic agents increase dramatically in operating rooms throughout the world. These gas sensors can alert the anaesthetist to several potentially adverse conditions such as inadvertent overdose.

Current sensor will make power supplies cheaper

Current sensor will make power supplies cheaper
Power supply circuits are literally everywhere. From the ubiquitous power bricks that recharge our phones to kilowatt server supplies in data centres, every modern electrified gadget has a switched-mode power supply circuit. Who wants to carry around a heavy laptop brick? What data centre does not want to drive energy cost down while at the same time increasing compute capacity?  By Mike Horton, CTO of ACEINNA

Rotary encoders provide precise digital data measurements

Rotary encoders provide precise digital data measurements
Rotary encoders provide precise digital data measurements regarding the motion or position of a shaft. Measuring motion or position relies on a consistent level of precision, a responsibility that partly falls on the coupling attached to the encoder. For this highly demanding application, Italsensor relies on Huco Flex P double-loop couplings to safeguard encoder precision and reliability.

Sensor manufacturers need to wake up and smell the (IoT) coffee

Sensor manufacturers need to wake up and smell the (IoT) coffee
There are a wide range of sensors that can be exploited to measure almost all the physical properties around us. A few common sensors that are widely adopted in everyday life include thermometers, pressure sensors, light sensors, accelerometers, gyroscopes, motion sensors, gas sensors and many more. Sensors are usually described using properties such as range, sensitivity and resolution.  Guest article written by Neil Hamilton, VP Business Development, Thingstream.
