Electric power steering systems typically need two sensors to measure steering torque. A dual-sensor package developed by Infineon combines both sensors in one package which not only shrinks the space requirement but also the cost. The device supports ASIL (Automotive Safety Level) D, the highest level required for safety-critical applications.
Analog Devices has posted details of the ADA4571, an anisotropic magnetoresistive (AMR) sensor with integrated signal conditioning amplifiers and ADC drivers. The device produces two analogue outputs that indicate the angular position of the surrounding magnetic field.
This automotive image sensor combines image quality with ASIL-ready support functions that will be required for future development of autonomous vehicles, providing imaging in moonless night conditions down to 0.005 lux (SNR1 illuminance); 125dB HDR output without additional ISP chip; reduced flicker effect of pulsing LED lights; and self-testing ASIL support functions for emerging safety systems.
Sensirion has designed disposable liquid flow sensor solutions for medical devices. The use of intelligent, compact and cost-effective disposable liquid flow sensors will change the field of drug delivery and enable solutions to be provided which are safer, more reliable and more mobile for care in the hospital and at home.
