Osram Opto Semiconductors SFH 5712 ambient light sensor

10 February, 2010 | Supplied by: Osram Australia Pty Ltd

The SFH 5712 from Osram Opto Semiconductors is a low-voltage digital ambient light sensor that converts light intensity to digital signal output capable of direct I2C interface, detecting ambient brightness in the same way the human eye does.


Self-validating thermocouple

21 January, 2010

Scientists at Britain's National Physical Laboratory have developed a self-validating thermocouple technology which incorporates metal-carbon eutectic alloy fixed points. This means that the thermocouple can self-validate, or check that it is measuring the temperature correctly.
