Sensors: Miniaturization and Testing (DVD)

“Spotlight on Design” features video interviews and case study segments, focusing on the latest technology breakthroughs. Viewers are virtually taken to labs and research centers to learn how design engineers are enhancing product performance/reliability, reducing cost, improving quality, safety or environmental impact, and achieving regulatory compliance.

Accurate data is critical for the testing and development of parts and systems for cars, trucks, and airplanes. To obtain this data, engineers rely on high-end specialty sensors that can fit into cramped spaces and operate reliably under extreme heat and pressure.

In the episode “Sensors: Miniaturization and Testing” (21:02), AVL engineers explain how a new crystalline material was developed to accurately measure the high pressures in the combustion chamber of turbocharged engines, and Meggitt Sensing Systems profiles the world’s smallest triaxial IEPE accelerometer.

This episode highlights multiple areas of interest, including:

  • Background and definitions of the miniaturization of sensors
  • Profile of the world’s smallest triaxial IEPE accelerometer
  • A look at engine pressure sensors based on gallium orthophosphate
  • A look at a single cylinder research engine used to evaluate sonar pressure transducers
  • Future trends
