Sensor I/F LSI

Sensor I/F LSI (Currently under development)

Any type of RAW level sensors can be connected to Sensor I/F LSI.

The Sensor I/F LSI mounted on the Sensor-Mate can be connected to various RAW level sensors. By combining the RAW level sensor + Sensor I/F LSI, it is possible to build an optimized sensor system and realize precise power control.

Brilliant concept never before

The Sensor I / F LSI realizes the following attractive concepts.

  • It supports many sensor interfaces such as optical (NDIR), resistor, piezo, and capacitance.
  • With the built-in Power Management function, you can control the power supply of the entire sensor node. This envisions LSIs in the future battery-less era.
  • It is designed so that the parameters of the internal analog circuit can be adjusted by software (register setting).
  • Support ultra low power mode and realize ultra low power sensing operation.

Built-in Analog Front End (AFE)

The most important part of the sensor is the part called the analog front end (AFE).

The Sensor I / F LSI is equipped with an amplifier circuit, ADC, etc. along each sensor interface.

This makes it possible to build many sensor systems with a common LSI.

  • Capacitance : Rain amount sensor, water level sensor, vibration sensor, etc.
  • Resistance, voltage : Strain sensor, etc.
  • Piezo : pressure sensor, etc.
  • NDIR : CO2 sensor, etc.

Sensor I / F LSI proposes the concept of sensing in the coming MEMS sensor era.

  • Low power consumption by LSI
  • Cost reduction and promotion of sensor diffusion by standardizing sensors and interfaces
  • A new sensing platform in the Sensor on Chip era

Only a few circuits are waking up during standby

Cuts all wasted power consumption when not sensing.

Only the timer is awake, and that timer is also designed to operate at ultra-low power consumption.

It cuts most of the power consumption in regular sensing sequence.

Realization of ultra-low power consumption sensing

In terms of sensing, there are cases where you want to perform accurate sensing, and there are cases where you want to achieve sensing with ultra-low power consumption even if the accuracy is reduced.

Sensor I / F LSI supports ultra low power mode, which realizes ultra-low power consumption.

This makes it possible to reduce the power consumption of the sensing system to the utmost limit.

Such flexible power consumption management is a merit that cannot be realized with commercially available sensors.

Looking for partners

By utilizing the Sensor I / F LSI developed by Tele-Sentient, we can provide many benefits to our partners.
