Maxim Integrated Santa Cruz ambient light sensor

27 February, 2014 | Supplied by: Avnet Electronics Marketing

Using the Santa Cruz ambient light sensor (ALS) from Maxim Integrated, factories can quickly configure and monitor multiple red, green, blue (RGB) and infrared (IR) ambient light sensors with the accuracy required in industrial applications.


STS ATM/GR electronic pressure transmitter

25 November, 2013 | Supplied by: Automated Control Pty Ltd

The ATM/GR is a robust electronic pressure transmitter (0/4-20 mA) featuring two independent switching contacts that are adjustable across the full range of the sensor. Available with numerous user-defined configurations (eg, connection and output signal), the transmitter has long-term stability and is capable of providing safety features in a range of industrial or process applications where pressure or level limits are critical.

25 November, 2013 | Supplied by: Micromax Pty Ltd

The Banner Engineering EZ-Light K30 Touch is a smaller version of the company's K50 Touch. Featuring a compact, rugged design, the single-point device is designed for efficient machine activation and pick-to-light operations.


CNT-based sensors can be implanted under the skin for a year

07 November, 2013

Researchers at MIT have built a carbon nanotube sensor that can monitor nitric oxide (NO) in living animals for more than a year. NO is one of the most important signalling molecules in living cells, carrying messages within the brain and coordinating immune system functions. In many cancerous cells, levels are perturbed, but very little is known about how NO behaves in both healthy and cancerous cells.


Algorithm modelling for parking sensors

28 October, 2013 | Supplied by: ASTC Design

A global vendor of automotive AMS ICs contracted ASTC consulting on algorithm design and feasibility for a next-generation automotive parking assistance sensor ASIC program, a derivative of the predecessor ultrasonic sensor transmit/receive (Tx/Rx) signal conditioner system chip.


Banner Engineering SureCross wireless Q45 push button

12 October, 2013 | Supplied by: Micromax Pty Ltd

The Banner Engineering SureCross wireless Q45 push button with confirmation light permits operators to send a digital signal with the push of a button and receive confirmation the signal has been received.


Video game technology with minimum lag

10 October, 2013

A new motion tracking technology could eliminate the lag that occurs in existing video game systems that use motion tracking.


Mind-powered system helps improve road safety

03 October, 2013

Australian electronics company Emotiv has developed a new system designed to reduce fatalities and improve road safety. The system communicates with the car and when the driver's level of attention drops the car safely slows down, alerting the driver to their lapse in concentration.


Carbon nanotube-based sensors for robotic applications

03 October, 2013

Researchers at the Technische Universität München (TUM) have developed carbon nanotube-based gas sensors that rapidly detect and continuously respond to extremely small changes in the concentrations of gases including ammonia, carbon dioxide and nitrogen oxide.


BAE Systems Detica IndustrialProtect solution

27 September, 2013 | Supplied by: BAE Systems

IndustrialProtect, from BAE Systems Detica, is a military-grade solution to protect nations' industrial control systems.


Athlete tracking technology wins Engineers Australia Award

23 September, 2013

CSIRO and Catapult Sports' program Tracking Elite Athletes, which uses revolutionary ClearSky Technology, has received the President's Award from Engineers Australia, Sydney Division.


Sensor technology to help detect cancer

03 September, 2013

Singapore-based microelectric engineers have developed a light-based sensor that can detect and measure the chemical signature of bladder cancer.


Paper-thin e-skin responds to touch

26 July, 2013 by Sarah Yang

UC Berkeley researchers have created new electronic skin, or e-skin, that responds to touch by instantly lighting up. The more intense the pressure, the brighter the light it emits. In addition to giving robots a finer sense of touch, the engineers believe the new e-skin technology could also be used to create things like wallpapers that double as touch-screen displays and dashboard laminates that allow drivers to adjust electronic controls with the wave of a hand.


burster torque sensors

19 July, 2013 | Supplied by: ADM Instrument Engineering Group

With the compact 8661 series of torque sensors, burster is extending its portfolio of products to include the acquisition of static and rotating torques over the range from 0.05 up to 200 Nm.


Motion sensing for commercial handheld devices

05 July, 2013

The A*STAR Institute of Microelectronics and Japan’s Shikino High-Tech Co have signed an agreement to create a next-generation application-specific integrated circuit intellectual property (ASIC IP) block for use in motion sensing technologies.
