Launch of new sensor design resource site for engineers

16-12-2022 | Mouser Electronics | Test & Measurement

Mouser has created a new resource site dedicated to sensor design guides. The resource site provides a growing collection of articles dedicated to the complexities of sensor design applications, supplying engineers with the information they require to solve complex design challenges.

Advances in sensor design have helped innovative new devices in consumer electronics, medical applications, and automotive manufacturing. The new sensor design guide resource site provides a variety of rich, in-depth articles on topics including ToF sensors, MEMS microphones, gyroscopes, and accelerometers.

In an article on board-mounted temperature sensors, embedded systems expert Ishmael Chigumira examines the technological innovations that have made it feasible for temperature sensors to be incorporated in a PCB rather than located off-board. The article illustrates the different types of temperature sensors, describes how to interpret board-mounted sensors, and recommends several best practices for integration and implementation. In The Dos and Don’ts of VOC Sensors, electronic engineer Robin Mitchell explains the different types of sensors used to measure VOCs. The article also explores the various applications for VOC sensors and offers tips on choosing the right solution for each potential design.
