element14 has selected 10 finalists in the Inductive Sensing Challenge, a global design competition using Texas Instruments' LDC1000 inductance-to-digital converter.


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.


Microchip SMBus temperature sensors

30 March, 2014 | Supplied by: Microchip Technology Hong Kong

The Microchip EMC1043 family of System Management Bus (SMBus) temperature sensors monitors three temperature zones - one internal diode and two externally connected diodes - for PC and embedded environments.


Vanishing electronics

24 March, 2014

Researchers are developing sensors that can detect the early onset of swelling and temperature changes in the brain after head injuries and then vanish when they're no longer needed.


Battery-free gesture recognition system

06 March, 2014 by Michelle Ma

University of Washington computer scientists have built a low-cost gesture recognition system that runs without batteries and lets users control their electronic devices hidden from sight with simple hand movements.


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.


Banner Engineering EZ-Light K30 Touch

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.


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.


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.
