TDK InvenSense End of Life (EOL) for the INMP-441

TDK InvenSense End of Life (EOL) for the INMP-441 (and all variants) MEMS Microphone TDK InvenSense has announced the End of Life (EOL) for the INMP-441 (and all variants) MEMS Microphone. The reason for EOL is due to assembly partner production and test equipment limitation. Component Distributors Inc. currently has some of the INMP-441ACEZ devices in stock, approximately 2500 pcs. When these devices are gone, no more will be available. Please click here for more information regarding the official EOL notice. A possible replacement part is the ICS-43434 Microphone. InRead More
EM Microelectronic Introduces the EMBC01-Eddystone Beacon   EMBC01-EDDYSTONE The EMBC01-Eddystone beacons allow you to deploy your beacons once and use them many times over. Build highly personalized features into your app or use nearby notifications to deliver web or app content, with no prior app install required. The beacons themselves do not need programming and are ready to go! The EMBC01-Eddystone beacon firmware implements the standardized Eddystone UID, URL and TLM packet advertisements and allow for provisioning using the Eddystone Configuration GATT Service. Using the Google Eddystone provisioning service implementedRead More
Choosing The Proper Accelerometer For Measurement Success And Sanity from Sensors | Online Selecting the correct accelerometer technology for a measurement application is vitally important for obtaining accurate results. Your measurement results are only as good as your accelerometer selection criteria. In this article, we look at the different types of accelerometers available on the market, and the considerations around each type.   BASIC ACCELEROMETER TYPES In broad terms, accelerometers are classified into two categories: AC-RESPONSE and DC-RESPONSE. An AC-response accelerometer, as the name implies, is a sensor which hasRead More
Introducing the SGX SensorTech EC410 Electrochemical Oxygen Sensor SGX electrochemical sensors detect gases by producing a chemical reaction between the gas and oxygen contained in the sensor. This reaction produces a small current, which is proportional to the concentration of the gas present. The sensor is, in effect, a type of fuel cell, hence all electrochemical oxygen sensors are of the self-powered, diffusion limited, metal-air battery type, comprising an anode, a semi-solid electrolyte paste and an air cathode. The cell comprises an enclosure containing two electrodes, a flat PTFE tapeRead More

SGX SensorTech MEMS Pellistor VQ548MP & VQ548MP-DA Pellistors are solid-state devices used to detect gases which are either combustible or which have a significant difference in thermal conductivity to that of air. The detecting elements consist of small ‘pellets’ of catalyst-loaded ceramic whose resistance changes in the presence of the target gas hence the term ‘pellistor’ being a combination of ‘pellet’ and ‘resistor’. The earliest form of catalytic gas sensor used heated bare coils of platinum wire to burn the gas. The heat generated by the burning process produced aRead More
