Renesas Electronics has announced a precision temperature sensor, the TS5111, targeting DDR5 memory modules as well as a host of other applications such as solid-state disks (SSDs), computing motherboards and communications equipment that require real-time temperature monitoring.
There are two types of sensors most commonly used in industrial automation applications: photoelectric and inductive (proximity).
Dytran Instruments has introduced Model 3683C — a charge mode, triaxial, case-isolated accelerometer that operates at up 538°C and can survive temperature excursions up to 593°C.
A drone to remotely detect people in crowds with infectious respiratory conditions such as COVID-19 is being developed by SA researchers in partnership with a Canadian tech company.
Researchers have developed a highly sensitive wearable pressure sensor that is capable of sensitive, precise and continuous measurement of physiological and physical signals.
Researchers have developed a micrometre-scale, low power consumption pressure sensor with potential applications in vacuum environments.
Scientists have created a system based on a crack-based sensor that is said to be so sensitive that it allows the wearer to detect the light brush of a feather.
Modern cars already feature a range of sophisticated systems, but the self-driving cars of the future will also have auditory capabilities.
Laird Connectivity's Sentrius BT510 sensor is a multisensor platform that combines temperature, open/closed, motion and impact sensing with Bluetooth 5 capabilities such as long-range (Coded PHY), security and Bluetooth Low Energy beaconing.
The PIR Click board, from Mikroe, is a pyroelectric sensor supporting human presence detection. The product is equipped with an onboard PL-N823-01 pyroelectric proximity infrared (PIR) sensor from KEMET Electronics, which enables human detection through glass or resin.
