Hi Charles, Based on the TI link you provided for additonal information, they provide a wealth of hardware, software, and reference design tools for the engineer to get hands-on knowledge about their product. I was really impress TI has built a model to be simulated in Webench for a first hand investigation of their AFE system without plopping down dollars for physical hardware. Nice article!

Thanks, Mrdon. The applications for this technology appear to be immense. Virtually every commercial building and even most homes have some kind of gas detection system. I think TI is on the right track.

Welcome Charles, TI and Analoge Devices seem to be the leaders in developing Sensor on the Chip technology. The Mining Industry would definitely benefit from this gas detection system technology in monitoring the air quality of underground mines.
