Cambridge CMOS Sensors Limited Key Developments

HiCling Selects Cambridge CMOS Sensors New Cling VOC Smart Fitness Wristband to Measure Indoor Air Quality and Alcohol in Breath

Cambridge CMOS Sensors Ltd. announced that HiCling is using its ultra-low power gas sensors to enable the new Cling VOC smart fitness wristband to measure indoor air quality and alcohol in breath. The CCS801 gas sensor integrated in the Cling VOC wristband can detect low levels of VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds) typically found indoors. In the Cling VOC wristband, these VOC measurements are used to provide an indication of air quality on the band’s display. The wristband can also provide alcohol breath analysis on demand, as the integrated CCS803 gas sensor with algorithms is sensitive to ethanol on human breath. The small footprint and low profile of the CCS8xx family of gas sensors mean that they can easily be accommodated in the slim and sleek enclosure of the Cling VOC, which is intended to appeal to fashion-conscious consumers. The CCS8xx sensors use a unique CMOS-based micro-hotplate platform, which enables the device miniaturisation, ultra-low power consumption and fast response times that are critical for wearable devices. Software libraries containing proprietary algorithms and example applications for the Android™ operating environment ensure that the CCS8xx sensors can easily be integrated into a wide range of portable consumer applications.

Cambridge CMOS Sensors Launches Digital Gas Sensor, CCS811

Cambridge CMOS Sensors announced the launch of CCS811, the first digital product in its CCS800 product family of ultra-low power miniature gas sensors. The CCS811 integrates a metal oxide gas sensor with a microcontroller sub-system which enables Indoor Air Quality Monitoring, ease of design, extended battery life and reduced system cost for smartphones, wearables and connected home devices. It is based on CCS’s unique Micro-hotplate technology which enables a highly reliable solution for gas sensors, very fast cycle times and a significant reduction in average power consumption compared with traditional metal oxide gas sensors. Features and benefits of CCS811 include: Integrated MCU – Manages sensor drive modes and measurements while detecting VOCs; On-board processing – Provides eCO2 level or TVOC indication with no host intervention; Standard digital interface – Simplifies the hardware and software integration for faster time to market; Optimised low-power modes – Extend battery life in portable applications; 2.7 x 4.0mm LGA package – Small form-factor designs; Low component count– Saves up to 60% in PCB footprint; and Proven technology platform – Designed for high volume and reliability (>5year lifetime). The CCS811 is available for sampling now in a 10 lead 2.7 x 4.0mm, 0.6mm pitch LGA package suited for space constrained portable applications. The 10Ku price for CCS811 is $5.82. Customer evaluation kits are available now for CCS811 with Windows based software for sensor measurements and logging results.
