Texas company, Sigma Sense has developed a sensing technology which it says will improve the performance of practically anything with a touchscreen, for example mobile phones, automotive, industrial, gaming, wearables, digital signage, industrial / IoT and even improve the performance of EV batteries.
MLCCs deliver industry leading capacitance, claims Murata
Passive technology manufacturer, Murata, offers the GRM series of multi-layer ceramic capacitors (MLCCs). The company says it is addressing the growing need for components that have elevated capacitance levels combined with miniaturised form factors and enhanced temperature performance. Offering capacitance values of 10 microF (and a ±20 per cent tolerance), the GRM series of MLCCs is supplied in a 0201 inch / 0603M package size.
Thin magnetic sheets have high permability for NFC
Noise suppressing / magnetic sheets by TDK have high permeability and low magnetic loss for NFC (near field communication) applications. The IFQ06 thin magnetic sheets are flexible and can be easily formed to a desired shape, said the company.
Low-power multi-gas sensor can be used in wearable and portable devices
The ScioSense ENS161 multi-gas sensor draws an average current of 700 microA that duty-cycles its heated metal-oxide (MOX) sensing elements. This is claimed to reduce power consumption by as much as 30 times compared to sensors that require their sensing elements to be permanently heated and enables continuous high-performance operation in devices with a small battery.
