Discusses the demise of the thermeonic valve and the firm establishment of the transistor as the major active component in electronic circuits.
Compares the relative merits of CCD and CMOS based video cameras. Describes the design and fabrication of CMOS sensors which include considerable hardware computational elements on the same chip as the sensor array. These enable the device to output picture information in a form that is directly...
Biometrics, the use of various means to identify, or verify the identity of, individuals can be a valuable aid wherever there is a need to control access, whether to a secure site or to an ATM or a piece of sensitive plant or machinery. The Association for Biometrics and the Department of Trade...
This article reports on the 4th International Micromachine Symposium and Exhibition Micromachine (1998) which were held in Tokyo, 28‐30 October 1998 and also serves as a supplementary information to the article “Micro sensor developments in Japan” in this special “Micro sensors” issue of the...
Screen printing is a traditional low cost technique for production of electronic circuitry. Conventionally, screen printing is capable of no smaller than 200‐250 micron line and space (500 micron pitch) geometry in anything other than low volume production. In recent years, ERA has been...
This paper describes some aspects of micro sensors developed as part of the micromachine project in Japan. This national R&D project, industrial science and technology frontier program “Micromachine technology”, was inaugurated in 1991 as a ten‐year project. The R&D goal is to establish...
Many new micromachined angular rate sensors (gyroscopes) are now commercially available. Their rapid development has been mainly due to the automotive industry. A wide range of different devices exists and their performance is significantly improving every year while costs are falling. Much...
Analyses some of the main ways in which microporous membranes can play a role in the efficient functioning of sensors. These devices are used to detect a property of, or component in, a fluid in contact with the sensor. As used in this article, the term “sensor” is intended to cover the broadest...
