austriamicrosystems ag-br (AMS) Key Developments

ams AG Introduces the TSL2584TSV

ams AG introduced the TSL2584TSV, an ambient light sensor in a through-silicon via package which has a footprint of just 1.145 x 1.66 mm and a height of 0.32 mm. In display management applications, automatically controlling the backlight intensity with an ALS ensures the best possible user experience while extending battery life. The new TSL2584TSV’s outline and height are approximately half the size of competing ALS devices, making it the world’s smallest ALS. ams’ has leveraged its wafer fabrication expertise to include TSV packaging technology as part of its light sensor portfolio. This TSV package technology improves performance by eliminating use of wire bonds and provides a direct connection from the device I/Os to a solder ball. TSV enhances the device reliability performance with a Moisture Sensitivity Level-1 standard rating, improves Humidity Temperature-Cycling performance while minimizing corrosion resistivity. The TSL2584TSV’s near-photopic response produces a highly accurate lux measurement even when mounted behind dark glass. Advanced fabrication technology and the ability to accurately deposit interference filters directly onto the silicon results in a superior performing ALS. Filtering out unwanted IR light enables the sensor to more accurately measure the ambient light thus producing a near-photopic response. The TSL2584TSV is available for volume production now. It is priced at $0.58 in order quantities of 1,000 pieces. A TSL2584TSV Evaluation Kit is available.

ams AG Introduces a 1A Synchronous Buck Converter

ams AG introduced a 1A synchronous buck converter with the wide input voltage range, high efficiency and low stand-by current required in designs powered by a single-cell lithium-ion battery. The new AS1382 step-down converter operates from an input range of 2.7-5.5V, and provides an output down to as little as 0.6V. Offering efficiency as high as 96% and no-load current of just 95µA, the converter helps designers of li-ion battery powered devices to reduce losses in the power circuit and to extend their product’s run-time between charges. In shut-down mode, the device draws just 0.04µA. Housed in a miniature 1.22mm x 0.85mm six-lead chip-scale package (WL-CSP6) with a 0.4mm pitch, the AS1382 operates at an internally fixed frequency of 2MHz, 3MHz or 4MHz, enabling the use of a small inductor. This means that a circuit based on the AS1382 DC-DC converter is small enough to be accommodated in densely populated board designs, such as those found in mobile phones, portable media players and wearable devices. The AS1382 is provided in variants offering a fixed output of 1.0V, 1.2V, 1.5V or 1.8V, and in a version with an output adjustable over the range 0.61-3.35V. All support a continuous load current of 1A, and require an output capacitor of just 10µF. The step-down converter may be operated in one of two modes: its Low-Ripple/Low-Noise mode produces very low levels of ripple and noise. In High-Efficiency mode, the device has lower power losses when supplying light loads, increasing stand-by time in always-on battery operated solutions. The device includes an internal synchronous switch, which eliminates the need for an external Schottky diode. The DC-DC step-down converter AS1382 is available in production volumes now, priced at $0.21 each in quantities of 1,000 units. An evaluation board for the AS1382 is available online from ams.

ams AG Announces Availability of its AS-MLV-P2 MEMS Gas Sensor Component for Volatile Organic Compound

ams AG announced that it is supplying its AS-MLV-P2 MEMS gas sensor component for VOC (volatile organic compound) detection to Withings for use in its innovative new Home monitoring system. Accurate, small and power-efficient, the AS-MLV-P2 sensor produces a precisely varying resistance in response to changes in ambient levels of pollutants commonly found in indoor environments. The size, accuracy, reliability and low power consumption of the AS-MLV-P2 make it perfect for air quality monitoring applications in smart home and IoT devices. In Withings’ stylish and compact Home product, the AS-MLV-P2 is combined with a 5Mpixel video camera, dual microphones, temperature and humidity sensors and Wi-Fi® and Bluetooth® Smart radios. This means that users of the Home monitoring system can see, hear, feel and smell the inside of their home remotely via a smartphone or tablet app supplied by Withings. The AS-MLV-P2 measures ambient concentrations of a broad range of reducing gases associated with bad air quality such as alcohols, aldehydes, ketones, organic acids, amines, and aliphatic and aromatic hydrocarbons, which can be harmful to human and animal health at high levels. In the Home app, the sensor’s measurements of these chemicals are converted to an air-quality rating as well as to a measurement of VOC concentrations. The Home unit also sends notifications to the user’s phone or tablet when the concentration of VOCs exceeds pre-set thresholds, allowing the user to take an appropriate action such as opening a window, turning on an air cleaner or increasing the fan speed of a ventilation system. The AS-MLV-P2 sensor’s accurate VOC detection capability results from the implementation of proprietary MEMS and metal oxide semiconductor (MOS) technology developed by ams. This technology enables devices such as the Home monitor to provide credible data to consumers concerned about the quality of the air that they and their families breathe. The company’s proven AS-MLV-P2 provides a direct measurement of the concentration of pollutants, giving the user helpful information on which they can act to protect and improve air quality. Available in a surface-mount package, it provides this capability in a small footprint and offers long-term stable operation, while only consuming a low amount of power (typically 34mW in continuous operation). The gas sensor AS-MLV-P2 is available now in production volumes. It is priced at $14.30 each in order quantities of 1,000.
