TSensors Roadmap Takes Shape

Last fall, an effort was started to drive the MEMS business (or sensors in general) to the point where a trillion sensors are shipped yearly. We covered the TSensors event, and we promised to update.

As a quick recap, the approach here is to identify high-yield applications and then focus in on those to remove barriers (largely, but not exclusively, cost). So the current process is to establish what those applications are going to be, and then have a chairperson for each application driving the writing of a chapter, to be contributed by various people.

The topics selected are as follows:

  • Noninvasive fitness-wellness-health monitoring (possibly to be expanded to include animal health)
  • Noninvasive chronic disease detection and monitoring
  • Minimally invasive fitness-wellness-health monitoring (possibly to be expanded to include animal health)
  • Personal imaging
  • Computer sensors (smell, taste, color, biometrics, etc.)
  • Environment sensing
  • Sensors for food production
  • Smart grid/Energy/Harsh environment sensors
  • Energy harvesting
  • Ultralow power wireless communication
  • Network infrastructure for Internet of Things

That’s a lot of stuff, covering a lot of ground.

One thing that’s clear is that there is room for more contribution by authors and even chapter chairs, at least as of the last update I saw. So if anyone is interested in participating, contact information is available on the TSensors website.

Powering Servers and AI with Ultra-Efficient IPOL Voltage Regulators

Sponsored by Infineon

For today’s networking, telecom, server, and enterprise storage applications, power efficiency and power density are crucial components to the success of their power management. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton and Dr. Davood Yazdani from Infineon chat about the details of Infineon’s ultra-efficient integrated point of load voltage regulators. Davood and Amelia take a closer look at the operation of these integrated point of load voltage regulators and why using the Infineon OptiMOS 5 FETs combined with the Infineon Fast Constant On Time controller engine make them a great solution for your next design.
