The complete sensor ecosystem
Next-generation products, from smart home appliances to self-driving cars to industrial equipment and beyond, rely on multiple sensors working together to provide more intelligence and improve the user experience. Sensors enable advanced functionality that captures, synchronizes and processes data in real time.
We’re experts in the physics and functionality of sensors. With a library of 40+ sensors ready for prototyping, we’ll help you develop a combination of sensors unique to your application.
Choosing the right sensor from a trusted vendor can save you development time and money. We’ll help you make the right connections through our global network of more than 16,000 suppliers. Take advantage or our advanced sourcing and planning, and rest assured that the sensors we source for you have been validated.
You’ve designed a working prototype – now let’s make sure you can scale it. Our expertise in sensors is complemented by our manufacturing know-how, so we can help you design an end-to-end sensor fusion solution with manufacturability in mind. And then we can help you scale it into markets around the world.
We partner with industry leaders to develop a long-term vision. So we can anticipate your product needs both today and in the future.
Take advantage of our sensor fusion capabilities. Combine data streams from multiple sensors in a machine-learning model to provide accurate detection of physical events. As computing technologies advance, more robust machine-learning models can be used at the edge on smaller, more cost-effective processors.
Capture sensor data and test your hypothesis quickly using our flexible sensor and prototyping library.
Do more in a smaller form-factor. As products and sensors get smaller, the complexity of their electronics grows. Our knowledge of microelectronic packaging and System-in-Package (SiP) helps you manage multiple silicon dies in the same package. The result? Higher performance and lower total system cost in a more compact sensor node design.
Designing your sensors in a prepackaged system gives you increased flexibility – whether it’s IP segmentation or modularity for a range of applications. You’re equipped with an all-in-one system that takes up minimal space, and the freedom to seamlessly integrate new features across a product line.
Our experience with managing data from multiple sensors positions us as your ideal partner for developing an autonomous vehicle solution. More sensors mean more chances for your system to run into processor or connectivity bottlenecking and system strain. That’s where our automotive sensor fusion modules come in to consolidate multiple outputs and simplify data processing. So even the most critical applications, such as autonomous vehicles and image processing, can run smoothly.
