Sensor Technology Handbook

Author:
Without sensors most electronic applications would not exist, as they perform a vital function, namely providing an interface to the real world. The importance of sensors, however, contrasts with the limited information available on them. This volume is an up-to-date and comprehensive sensor reference guide to be used by engineers and scientists in industry, research, and academia to help with their sensor selection and system design.

The book will offer guidance on selecting, specifying, and using the optimum sensor for any given application. The editor-in-chief, Jon Wilson, has years of experience in the sensor industry and leads workshops and seminars on sensor-related topics.

Sensor Technology Handbook provides detailed information on each type of sensor technology, covering:

  • technology fundamentals
  • sensor types, w/ advantages/disadvantages
  • Manufacturers
  • selecting and specifying sensors
  • applicable standards (w/ URLS of related web sites)
  • interfacing information, with hardware and software info
  • design techniques and tips, with design examples
  • latest and future developments

The handbook also contains information on the latest MEMS and nanotechnology sensor applications. In addition, a CD-ROM will accompany the volume containing a fully searchable pdf version of the text, along with various design tools and useful software.
