Kionix offers a variety of MEMS accelerometers and combo mag-gyro sensors suitable for a wide variety of applications. Features include class-leading performance, ultra-low power consumption, strong impact resistance, and superior temperature characteristics. Products with built-in state machines are also offered that allow for easy programming by the customer.
Barometric Pressure Sensor
ROHM's piezo resistive type barometric pressure sensor enables easy high accuracy measurement utilizing temperature compensation based on ROHM's original algorithm that covers a wide temperature range.
The BM1422GMZ incorporates a control IC together with an MI sensor capable of detecting magnetic fields in 3 directions into a compact package. The MI sensor features significantly less power consumption than conventional models as well as lower noise, making it ideal not only for eCompass applications, but also sets requiring a greater degree of accuracy.
ROHM's 3-in-1 ALS/proximity sensor integrates an infrared LED, ambient light sensor, and proximity sensor into a single package, improving screen visibility while reducing set power consumption.
ROHM's color sensor utilizes proprietary infrared removal technology and calculation method to deliver industry-leading IR removal characteristics. This reduces the effects of IR by over 10x compared with conventional products, making it possible to accurately detect the brightness and color temperature - even under dark (low transmittance) optical windows.
Hall Effect Sensor
ROHM's bipolar type Hall Sensor outputs ON (Active Low) upon detection of a magnetic field, regardless of polarity (N/S pole). This eliminates the need for magnet management (i.e. marking), allowing virtually any magnet to be used. ROHM also offers bipolar detection Hall ICs with polarity discrimination featuring 2 outputs (N/S pole) capable of determining the polarity.
ROHM temperature ICs integrate a temperature detection element, constant current circuit, and high-accuracy reference power supply voltage in a single chip. As a result, cumbersome circuit design is no longer necessary, making them ideal for electronic devices requiring temperature detection, such as mobile phones, tablets, PCs, LCD TVs, and gaming equipment.
LAPIS Semiconductor developed a silicon-based sensor IC capable of detecting UV rays utilizing original SOI (Silicon On Insulator) technology.
The shield, which is attached to an Arduino/Lazurite platform, allows different sensor boards to be connected.
