23 June, 2014 | Supplied by: Arrow Electronics Australia Pty Ltd

Vishay Semiconductors' VCNL4020X01 is a proximity and ambient light optical sensor with an operating temperature range to 105°C. The product combines an IR emitter, a photo-pin-diode for proximity, an ambient light detector, a signal processing IC and a 16-bit ADC.


Goal-line technology at World Cup 2014

11 June, 2014

The GoalControl-4D system is equipped with 14 high-speed cameras located around the pitch, with seven cameras focusing on each goalmouth. Using a special detection software, the ball is filtered out from the image sequences and its real-time position is automatically calculated as X, Y and Z coordinates as well as speed, making it 4D.

New technique could cut sensors required for terahertz imaging

06 May, 2014

A new technique developed by MIT researchers is said to reduce the number of sensors required for terahertz or millimetre-wave imaging by a factor of 10, or even 100. The technique could also have implications for the design of new, high-resolution radar and sonar systems.


Infineon TLI4970 current sensor

01 May, 2014 | Supplied by: Infineon Technologies Australia Pty Ltd

Claimed to require just one-sixth of the board space taken up by other sensors, the Infineon TLI4970 current sensor measures alternating and direct currents up to ±50 A. The digital sensor does not require external calibration.


Smartphone-readable, anti-counterfeiting particles

15 April, 2014

Around 2-5% of all international trade involves counterfeit products, according to a 2013 UN report. Counterfeit products - including electronics, automotive and aircraft parts, pharmaceuticals and food - can pose safety risks and cost governments and private companies hundreds of billions of dollars annually.
