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 […]
At Sensors Expo 2016, EcoReco Scooter and ROHM Semiconductor experts explain a demo showing electric scooter applications that sensors provide rider detection and a motion-based theft alert alarm.

At Sensors Expo 2011, Randy Frank gets the scoop on the Industry’s first multi-touch controller for resistive touchscreens from Vijendra Kuroodi, principal systems architect at ROHM Semiconductor. With their ability to implement two-point operation and intuitive gesture control, the BU21023/BU21024 series is quite impressive. Since the controllers address resistive touch screens, they provide an alternative […]
