Sensor

Although tghis is a data converter, it really functions as a sensor. Becuase of the packaging advantages, it should appeal to mechanical engineers, as much as EEs.

Very impressed with the positional accuracy of this device (micron resolution).  I'm sure that this will find many applications for implementation.

@Murray: Is the GPS system being implemented on this or a similar mechanism being used to track ?

Yes i guess it will be useful for the engineers and at the same time for the tracker companies.

@far911: Yes and the accuracy too will be good. Also you can get the real time updates and integrating facility with other tools.

  I think this would be a tremendous tool for safety devices in a press room and/or machine shops. Too often, in a punch press, ram and crank position is sensed by micro switches that can and do occasionally fail. Since OSHA, there are usually redundant safeties, but even now there are occasional failures.

Don't know if your question about the announcement was directed at this product, but this one has already been announced. It's available for order now at $2.95 in 1,000-unit quantitiies.

Smart utilization of technology I would say. It would be great if this sensor can provide even better control in places like motor speed control and with more accuracy than hall effect sensors.

I'll doublecheck with TI, taimoortariq, but I believe the resolution is better than that of a Hall Effect sensor.

Latest Analysis
The engineers and inventors of the post WWII period turned their attention to advancements in electronics, communication, and entertainment. Breakthrough inventions range from LEGOs and computer gaming to the integrated circuit and Ethernet -- a range of advancements that have little in common except they changed our lives.
The age of touch could soon come to an end. From smartphones and smartwatches, to home devices, to in-car infotainment systems, touch is no longer the primary user interface. Technology market leaders are driving a migration from touch to voice as a user interface.
Soft starter technology has become a way to mitigate startup stressors by moderating a motor’s voltage supply during the machine start-up phase, slowly ramping it up and effectively adjusting the machine’s load behavior to protect mechanical components.
A new report from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) makes a start on developing control schemes, process measurements, and modeling and simulation methods for powder bed fusion additive manufacturing.
If you’re developing a product with lots of sensors and no access to the power grid, then you’ll want to take note of a Design News Continuing Education Center class, “Designing Low Power Systems Using Battery and Energy Harvesting Energy Sources."
