IRLYNX and CEA-Leti have announced they have launched a technology-development partnership for a new CMOS-based infrared technology that will allow a new type of smart and connected detectors in buildings and cities.
Having given LG Electronics early access to its VL6180X infrared time-of-flight optical range finding module over the last year, STMicroelectronics has put the part on general sale at a price of $2.50 and now provides a development kit.
Tichawa Vision has developed what it claims to be the world's fastest contact image sensor (CIS). The speed of up to 21 metres per second at a resolution of 300 dpi makes the sensor suitable for quality control applications in fast-running processes such as image printing on paper or coated foils.
At the cross-point between biochemistry and electronics, Aryballe Technologies' conception of what an electronic nose should do goes well beyond existing gas sensors and other industrial electronic sniffers.
