The ROHM Group, which consists of ROHM, Kionix, and LAPIS Semiconductor, offers a wide range of sensor products and solutions optimized for a variety of design and application needs, from ambient light, proximity, temperature, and Hall sensors to optical sensors, combo mag-gyro sensors, accelerometers, UV sensors, and low-power MCUs. Below are our featured solutions and Best of Show award entries.

Featured Solution: Machine Health Demo

This innovative solution can help improve efficiency and performance while driving down costs in factories and plants by detecting machine failures in advance through real-time monitoring. The modular configuration covers mechanical, environmental, and optical failures by integrating pressure, temperature, and color sensors along with accelerometers that monitor vibration and other important factors. In addition, sub-GHz technology supports multiple wireless nodes with a range of up to 1km.



Featured Solution: Blood Pressure Ring

Unlike conventional cumbersome cuff-based blood pressure monitors that make continuous monitoring difficult, ROHM has developed a ring-type blood pressure monitor utilizing an optical pulse wave sensor that presents a non-invasive way to accurately determine blood pressure. Using this device will make it possible to detect early symptoms and perform preliminary treatment and diagnosis to prevent the onset of vascular disease (which accounts for the top 2 causes of death worldwide) through continuous blood pressure monitoring – most importantly during sleep and the first 2-3 hours after waking up.

Featured Solution: Logger EVK

ROHM's RFID data logger is an ideal battery-operated IoT device for measuring environmental conditions for the cold chain supply market. A key benefit is the capability to use RFID protocols to passively transfer data to a reader, preventing power from being consumed when polling information from devices. Additionally, PDF files can be created that allows convenient printing of logged data, meeting the requirements of cold chain customers.

Featured Solution: PC Lid Angle Demo

The portable nature of laptops makes battery life a critical factor. As a result, it necessary to determine the position of the lid to determine the operating status. ROHM has made it possible to easily and accurately detect the angle of the cover by integrating an accelerometer in the cover and keyboard. This method eliminates the need for expensive magnets while reducing design time for developers as mag-field simulations are no longer required to return the cover position of a device in operation.
