SDP3x Series – Differential Pressure Sensors

The SDP3x is the world's smallest differential pressure sensor. It measures just 5 mm x 8 mm x 5 mm, opening up new dimensions of integration and application possibilities. The senor is based on the next generation of the CMOSens® sensor chip and is the heart of Sensirion's new sensor platform for measuring differential pressure and mass flow. The SDP3x differential pressure sensor is reflow solderable, pro ...

The world’s tiniest temperature sensor is powered by radio waves

Researchers at TU/e have developed a very tiny wireless temperature sensor that is powered in a very special way: from the radio waves that are part of the sensor’s wireless network. This means that the sensor needs not even a single wire, nor a battery that would have to be replaced. The arrival of such sensors is an important development on route towards smart buildings, for instance. But the applications ...

Humidity and temperature measurements with Sensirion’s SHT1x/SHT7x sensors using PIC18F2550 (Part 1)

Temperature and relative humidity are two very important ambient parameters that are directly related to human comfort. Sometimes, you may be able to bear higher temperatures, if there is a lower relative humidity, such as in hot and dry desert-like environment. However, being in a humid place with not very high temperature may make you feel like melting. This is because if there is high relative humidity, ...

LED fireflies prototype using PIC12f683 microcontroller

LED fireflies prototype hello all, heres an attempt i made at something like an LED throwie..the problem (for me) with led throwies is that they just consume their battery, and produce light.. but they could be better at doing both.. first you have to accept the premise that your willing to spend a bit more for the tradeoff.. the inspiration for this came from some of my other projects, and of course the "L ...
