Highly Integrated Optical Sensors Measure RGB, Ambient Light, Proximity Motion, Infrared, and Temperature


July 11, 2012 Maxim Integrated Products, Inc. announces four, new digital optical sensors that advance analog integration with sensor fusion. The MAX44004/05/06/08 measure red/green/blue (RGB) light levels, ambient visible light (ALS), proximity to the sensor, ambient infrared (IR) levels, and temperature. As many as seven sensors are integrated into one compact optical package. The sensors provide robust and repeatable measurements and the MAX44005/MAX44006/ MAX44008 all consume an industry-low 20 µA each. The high integration reduces system cost, eliminates several external components, and greatly simplifies design. These optical sensors can be used in a wide variety of applications such as smartphones, tablets, portable consumer devices, displays, digital light management, security systems, and medical devices ...

Electronic Tilt Sensors based on Force Balance Accelerometer Technology


Family of electronic tilt sensors ideal for platform stabilization, surface mapping and measuring tilt angels in remote locations has been developed by Columbia Research Laboratories. Sensors are based on force balance accelerometer technology intended for applications such as platform stabilization, surface mapping, and measuring tilt angles in remote locations. These low cost, high performance, extremely accurate sensors produce a high level, low impedance output proportional to the sine of the tilt angle. All models feature unique damping and desensitization circuitry that allows tilt measurements in strong vibration and shock environments. These inclinometers are self-contained requiring no additional signal conditioning in most applications ...

magnetostrictive position sensors for measurement on hydraulic cylinders and fluid levels


Sensor specialist ASM extends its successful range of magnetostrictive position sensors POSICHRON® by the new PCST27 series. The robust probe sensors allow for precise positioning of hydraulic cylinders or the measurement of fluid levels. The models in the PCST27 series have proven their superior reliability, even after years of use under the most extreme conditions. Magnetostrictive position sensors of the POSICHRON® product line are extremely durable and therefore suitable even for applications where other measurement principles fail. The newly presented PCST27 models by ASM were designed specifically for the integration inside of large hydraulic cylinders that are used in harsh environments such as offshore or in the shipping industry. The rod-profile design allows them to be easily installed in the cylinder and detect piston positions with high precision even under difficult conditions ...

Ultra-Low Power, Ultra-Compact Sensor Hub Microcontroller for Smartphones


LAPIS Semiconductor (formerly OKI Semiconductor), a ROHM Group company, announces the development of the ML610Q792 Sensor Hub Microcontroller—the industry’s smallest microcontroller designed for integrated, low-power control of multiple sensors in smartphones. The ML610Q792 makes it possible to deploy new cloud-based features and services in smartphones that would otherwise be prohibitive due to increased power consumption. It logs user environment data and detects user activity without disturbing the host processor. And its remarkably low power consumption not only prolongs battery life, but enables support for wireless communication in compact products like pedometers and smartphone accessories ...
