EETE NOV 2014

electronica 2014 Company Profile A sensor pro in every discipline Sensirion, the world’s leading provider of humidity and temperature sensors, is tak-ing sensor technology to a new level this year. At the electronica 2014 in Munich, the technology pioneer is presenting the most advanced platform for humidity and tem-perature sensors: the Platform3x with the powerful SHT3x sensor series. As the mar-ket leader, Sensirion is launching an innovation that excels across the board and a sensor that outperforms all previous models. The versatile Platform3x consists of a group of humidity and temperature sensors with different precision levels and features. The Platform3x is thus optimally designed for individual applications on the market. Whether for the cost-conscious, the groundbreaking or the high-end product that demands the best humidity and temperature sensor, the Platform3x impresses in every discipline and provides the ideal solution for all precision classes and various interfaces. The SHT3x combines the strengths of the established SHT1x, the revolutionary SHT2x and the advanced SHTC1 series in a single, unique product. But that’s not all by a long way. The SHT3x includes a user programmable alert function, where the sensor can be used as a humidity and temperature guard. Moreover, Sensirion’s latest innovation contains another world premiere, an analog ratiometric voltage output. This is the first fully calibrated and linear digital/analog humidity and temperature sensor. The SHT3x series thus combines multiple functions and various interfaces (I2C, voltage out) with a user-friendly, very wide operating voltage range (2.4 to 5.5 V). Like all sensors from Sensirion, the SHT3x is based on the unique CMOSens® Technology, which allows a high production volume at an exceptional price/performance ratio. In addition, the technology enables a small footprint of 2.5 x 2.5 mm with a height of 0.9 mm. So Sensirion has once again launched one of the smallest humidity sensors for applications over 2.4 V.
