Multi-function MEMS sensor includes integrated gas sensor This environmental sensor from Bosch Sensortec combines pressure, humidity, temperature and indoor air quality measurement parameters. You can use it to equip mobile devices and wearables with indoor air quality measurement, with its low power consumption and small package BME680 integrates a gas sensor with full-specifications air pressure, humidity and ambient air temperature sensing functions in a single 3.0 x 3.0 mm footprint. The environmental sensor enables new capabilities for portable and mobile devices such as air quality measurement, personalised weather stations, indoor navigation, fitness monitoring, and home automation. The gas sensor within the BME680 can detect a broad range of gases in order to measure indoor air quality for personal well-being, including Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) from paints (such as formaldehyde), lacquers, paint strippers, cleaning supplies, furnishings, office equipment, glues, adhesives and alcohol. With its combination of four sensors in one package, the BME680 provides the accurate, detailed real-world data required for many IoT applications. Expected uses include smart homes, smart offices and buildings, smart energy, smart transportation, HVAC, elderly care and sport/ fitness applications.

Designed specifically for smartphone camera applications, this image sensor delivers near-digital-still-camera quality with power consumption and footprint that are optimised for mobile devices. ON Semiconductor has developed its 1.1 m pixel technology for performance smartphone sensors with pixel and colour filter array (CFA) processing advancements, which has increased the sensitivity by nearly 20% compared to the previous generation. Image quality is significantly improved, especially in low light. 13-MP resolution supports high-quality zoom, and sharp reproduction of scene details. Professional quality video is supported thorough 4K Ultra- High Definition (UHD) and Cinema formats at 30 frames per second (fps) and Full HD 1080P at 60 fps. The high 32-degree Chief Ray Angle (CRA) supports low z-height applications. The AR1335 is in mass production in die format and has already been designed into several smartphone models.
