  • 1:15-1:45pm How New Features in Digital Temperature Sensors are Revolutionizing the Safety and Reliabilityof Electronic Products Bryce Morgan
Almost daily, the news discusses some electronic product overheating, causing potentially catastrophicproblems. While an overly hot product can, of course, cause problems, the correct thermal management ofthe inevitable heat should be a part of sensible and prudent product design.

  • 3:30-4:30pm Tackling the Need for Better Temperature Sensors in Medical Devices Herbert E. Dwyer
Medical devices continue to become more complex, require many functions to be performed in ever smaller packages and the law of physics is now at work. The drive to less invasive, lower cost and re-use or non-reuse devices that have to be sterilized in steam or chemicals is making it much harder to use the standard selection of plastics, electronics or even achieve the intended objectives of the device itself. Recent experiences in packaging three thermocouples into a 0.040” needle of 10” in length that is not grounded and intrinsically safe for use in an operating theater or even in an out patient setting demonstrated that challenge. This session will discuss some of the challenges and results: design approach, packaging issues, finding the right materials and driving the cost down as we move towards clinical trials. Secondarily, we need to think of volumes and how to ramp such small devices to larger volumes within a budget.

Schedule
  • 10:15-10:45am CS-FET: Chemical Sensitive Field Effect Transistor Dr. Hossain Fahad - Research Lead, BSAC
CS-FETs are silicon channel transistors with the traditional gate stack replaced by ultra-thin films of metal and/or metal oxides. The work-function and surface charges of these films are readily manipulated upon exposure to target gas species. I will show how such changes in the sensing film results in a strong modulation of the underlying transistor current, enabling high detection sensitivity; and functionalizing individual transistors in an array with different chemical sensing films can enable a selective detection with multiplexed gas sensing.
  • 11:00-11:30am Fiber Optic Temperature Sensors Outperform Thermocouples and RTDs in Challenging Environments Jeffrey Fisher - Application Engineer, Micronor Inc.
Gallium-Arsenide based (GaAs) fiber optic temperature sensors offer an inherent absolute, high precision temperature measurement in the most difficult environments. Their entirely non-metallic and passive optical design allows for a vast amount of applications such as high voltage, microwave, radiation, sensitive medical or laboratory conditions, hazardous locations, and extreme magnetic fields. In these settings, conventional thermocouples and RTDs are incompatible and, sometimes, dangerous. This presentation will explain the sensors’ design, illustrate both standard and application-specific sensor configurations, and introduce the new FOTEMP1-OEM-MNT; a low cost, single-channel signal conditioner aimed at seamlessly integrating fiber optic temperature sensing into any industrial control system or OEM instrumentation. We hope to see you there!
