Global distributor Mouser Electronics Inc. has launched a source site for engineers looking to receive help for sensor design.
The resource site includes a collection of articles dedicated to sensor design so engineers can get information needed to solve design challenges.
The resource site is located at: https://resources.mouser.com/sensor-design-guides
Why it is needed
Mouser said that sensor design has advanced due to new devices in consumer electronics, healthcare technology and automotive manufacturing needing the semiconductors. The design guide resource site offers articles on topics such as:
- Time of flight sensors
- MEMS microphones
- MEMS gyroscopes
- MEMS accelerometers
In an article about on-board mounted temperature sensors, an engineer details how it is possible for these sensors to be integrated in a PCB instead of located off-board. The article defines the different types of temperature sensors, explains how to interpret board-mounted sensors and discusses best practices for integration and implementation.
In another article, an engineer introduces different types of sensors used to measure volatile organic compounds and the various applications where these sensors can be used. It also gives tips on how to choose the right sensor for each potential design.
