At Electronica 2012 Sensirion will present the world’s smallest humidity and temperature sensor, setting new standards for size, power consumption, production volume and price.
The tiny SHTC1 humidity and temperature sensor is specifically designed for mobile devices where size is a critical factor. Sensirion has rigorously followed the maxim “smaller is better” and developed the world’s smallest sensor in its class, measuring a mere 2 x 2 x 0.8mm. The sensor is based on the proven CMOSens Technology, which allows the sensor and the signal processing electronics to be combined on a single silicon chip to achieve small device size. Production is targeted at high volume to allow low unit prices to be achieved by economy of scale. The supply voltage of 1.8V is also fully in line with the needs of the target industry.
