ON Semiconductor has been chosen by the Consumer Technology Association (CTA) as a CES 2017 Innovation Awards honoree for its Smart Passive Sensor (SPS) solution in the Embedded Technology category.
The SPS1M and SPS2T Smart Passive Sensors dispense with the need to have a microcontroller or battery at each sensing node. These ultra-thin devices are able to work autonomously to sense key parameters (temperature, moisture, pressure and proximity) in an energy efficient manner that allows for all power needs to be satisfied through energy harvesting. They can deliver battery-free wireless networking without requiring periodic maintenance, thereby reducing the associated operational costs.
Commenting on being honoured in the Embedded Technology category, Bob Klosterboer, executive vice president and general manager, Analogue Solutions Group at ON Semiconductor, said: “It is a testament to the wealth of engineering talent present at ON Semiconductor and the ongoing investment we have made to provide superior solutions for the connected world.”
The Smart Passive Sensors will be demonstrated at the upcoming CES 2017, which runs from 5-8 January 2017 in Las Vegas.
