Gemalto, Fingerprint Cards, Precise Biometrics and STMicroelectronics introduced the first end-to-end security architecture for biometric fingerprint authentication at Mobile World Congress 2016.
The Vishay Semiconductors VEML7700 is a digital ambient light sensor for backlight dimming and optical switching in consumer products.
The lightweight and low-power PIQ sports wearable device for performance measurement and coaching relies on key sense, control and communication technologies from semiconductor company STMicroelectronics.
STMicroelectronics has introduced the MIS2DH, an ultralow-power 3-axis accelerometer designed for medical applications, including implantable devices classified by US FDA as Class III. The off-the-shelf solution can enable functions such as activity monitoring and posture sensing to be included in a wide range of medical applications.
Automotive manufacturer Continental is working on in-car apps that will connect drivers with their homes as well as with other personal devices such as smartphones, tablets, laptops and wearables.
Australian researchers have developed a world-first radio-tracking drone to locate radio-tagged wildlife.
Vishay Intertechnology has introduced a miniature plastic housing for the rapid prototyping of reflective presence and proximity sensors. The housing is designed to provide optical isolation between a 3 mm (T1) infrared (IR) emitter and any of Vishay's TSSP-type presence or proximity sensors.
The MPU-6555 is InvenSense's 6-axis (3-axis gyroscope + 3-axis accelerometer) activity detection device, working in conjunction with its Automatic Activity Recognition library (AAR) in a 3 x 3 x 0.9 mm (24-pin QFN) package.
The MAXREFDES42# IO-Link temperature sensor reference design (RD) is a resistance temperature detector (RTD) for industrial control and automation.
The Honeywell CSL series of linear current sensors utilise LOHET Hall effect output. The series provides the user with a sensor and flux collector all within a single compact holder and housing assembly.
Designed to convert solar UV light intensity to digital data in consumer, medical and industrial applications, the Vishay Semiconductors VEML6070 comes in a compact 2.35 x 1.8 x 1 mm surface-mount package. The integrated UV light sensor features Filtron UV technology for high UV sensitivity and linearity.
Contelec has announced two multi-turn versions of its robust Vert-X series contactless Hall-Effect angle sensors. The Vert-X 37MT CANopen has a gearless 16-bit multi-turn and 16-bit single-turn resolution, while the Vert-X 24MT may be programmed for up to 10 turns and has a 12-bit single-turn resolution.
