ROHM Semiconductor announced the new BM1390GLV(-Z) compact, high accuracy barometric pressure sensor IC. The new device features a waterproof rating of IPX8 and is ideal for home appliances, industrial equipment, and compact IoT devices. Barometric pressure sensors have become popular in wearables and smartphones for indoor navigation, and for acquiring altitude data in activity meters. In […]
ROHM Semiconductor announced they have developed a high optical output laser diode, the RLD90QZW3, for applications such as AGVs (Automated Guided Vehicles) and service robots in the industrial equipment sector and robot vacuums in the consumer field that incorporate LiDAR for distance measurement and spatial recognition. In recent years, LiDAR has been increasingly adopted in […]
At Sensors Expo 2019, Satya Dixit from Applications and Systems Engineering at Rohm Semiconductor explains the capabilities and applications for an earthquake sensor module. The earthquake detection module (BP3901) has correctly detected 200 out of 205 previous cases of seismic events. Waveform differences between a seismic event and an external event such as a collision […]
The acquisition of successful microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) sensor companies by larger and broader semiconductor manufacturers and even other larger sensor suppliers has occurred frequently within the past few years. While there are numerous post-acquisition steps that need to be taken to successfully integrate the two companies, a co-development project is technical way to demonstrate the […]
At Sensors Expo 2018, Caleb Kim from ROHM Semiconductor explains a visually intriguing display in his booth. A ROHM pressure sensor was used to build a game. Whenever the ball portion of the game is struck, the pressure sensor attached to the ball measures the difference in pressure. The harder the ball is hit, the […]
At Sensor Expo 2017, a ROHM Semiconductor expert discusses how several sensors including pressure, temperature, flow and level sensors connected through sensor node can help monitor a machine’s health or control a process. In the demo, each sensor node collects the data and uses wireless sub-gigahertz radio called Wi-SUN and transfers the data to a […]
