Researchers Develop Transparent Flexible Terahertz Sensors With Graphene

The researchers of the Swedish Chalmers University of Technology have developed a new design of terahertz sensor using Graphene. This flexible sensor can be integrated into wearable materials. Most importantly, it can be manufactured very cheaply and also it is practically transparent. This new type of sensor could be a major breakthrough by opening doors of many new applications. The terahertz frequency ba ...

MediaTek Sensio, is a 6-in-1 biosensor module for smartphones

Smartphones in recent times have contributed to the growth of the medical sensing industries with a major success in the usage of a smartphone camera and flash to detect heart rate. Specialized Apps installed on the phone can use the phone inbuilt camera and flash to read an individual heart rate with high accuracy but nothing else in the space of health monitoring. Sensio is a biosensor that will allow sma ...

Brand New BiCMOS Flexible Transistor

The transistor revolutionized the field of electronics, and paved the way for smaller and cheaper radios, calculators, and computers, among other things since its very first practically implemented device as a point-contact-transistor invented in 1947 and getting the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1956. Now, engineers from the University of Wisconsin-Madison (UW-Madison) have built the most flexible, fully-funct ...

RESEARCHERS DEVELOP LONG RANGE BACKSCATTER SENSORS THAT CONSUME ALMOST NO POWER

Researchers at the University of Washington developed a new backscatter sensors that can operate over long ranges with very little power. The researchers demonstrated for the first time that the device runs on almost zero power and can transmit data across distances of up to 2.8 kilometers. Backscatter communication works by emitting a radio signal and then monitoring the reflections of that signal from sen ...

LED Sensors

Things are moving along … With my new understanding of I2C master/slave communications, I’ve started work on larger arrays and finding the best way to manage the array and communicate the data to the host PC. Above is the latest iteration of the project… and here is a lengthy description of what you’re seeing: Along the top row you see six ICs, from left to right they are: (hehe, I bet you’re thinking, I on ...

Even the humidity & temperature sensors can be „3G“

Even the actual series like SHT1x and SHT2x belong to a top in this segment. Forthcoming series SHT3x (SHT30, SHT31 and soon also SHT35) addresses mainly those of you, requiring maximum accuracy even in limit values (humidity below 10% and above 90%), miniature dimensions and ultra low power consumption. So a main difference of a new SHT31 compared to SHT21 is, that a typical +-2% is maintained in a whole r ...
