Identifying suppliers - search the Design News articles archives. Lots of times there are articles on devices - from sensors to microcontrollers and more, that show good comparisons with background information.
Q. What factors I need to consider to choose, for example, a pressure sensor for a medical application?, Can I choose any sensor from the market or it has to be special?. Thank you.
Sensing in medical applications can pose a few callenges. The first level is whether the sensing is external or internal. Obviously thermometers can address internal (but not invivo) measurements rather easily. Internal blood pressure measurements have specifcations that have been developed. Some sensor suppliers caution against the use of their products in medical applications.
Since you are checking pressure drop across a filter, what is the system pressure.
This would determin the common mode presure the sensor must tolerate.
Good point. I should have stated air filtering in a computer system. If this was a high pressure water flow application, the common mode pressure would certianly been a top level cosnideration and it would have added packaing complexity to the decision. For air filter monitoring, many pressure sensor suppliers address this type of application and the comon mode pressure is not normally an issue.
In his keynote address at the RAPID 2015 conference last week, Made In Space CTO Jason Dunn gave an update on how far his company and co-development partner NASA have come in their quest to bring 3D printing to the space station -- and beyond.
On Memorial Day, Americans remember the sacrifices the US armed forces have made, and continue to make, in service to the country. All of us should also consider the developments in technological capabilities and equipment over the years that contribute to the success of our military operations.
