Touch sensor is a drop-in mechanical switch replacement

Touch sensor is a drop-in mechanical switch replacement
A new touch operated sensor launched by Omron Electronic Components Europe is a drop-in replacement for a mechanical switch, but delivers all of the reliability and flexibility of touch. Capacitive touch sensors deliver a great many benefits in terms of longevity and user-friendliness, but usually require careful work at the design stage and proper set up to ensure that they work reliably in the application.

Avalanche photodiodes accelerated by internal electric field

Avalanche photodiodes accelerated by internal electric field
In conventional PIN photodiodes, incoming photons create electron-hole pairs, also called charge carriers, which supply a measurable photocurrent. Avalanche photodiodes, APDs, differ from PIN detectors in that the charge carriers set free by the incoming light are accelerated by the internal electric field creating an avalanche of electron-hole pairs through impact ionisation.

Low power analogue temperature sensor evaluation module

Low power analogue temperature sensor evaluation module
The TMP235EVM evaluation module (EVM) from Texas Instruments is a plug and play system to test and evaluate the TMP235 analogue temperature sensor. The EVM utilises a USB interface for control and data streaming, and can be plugged into a PC USB port. With the simple GUI, temperature measurements can be streamed within a matter of seconds after the EVM is attached to a PC and the GUI is started.
