Universal Sensors and Transducers Interfacing IC (USTI-MOB) Makes Smartphones' Sensors Smarter

Barcelona, Spain – Technology Assistance BCNA 2010, S. L. (TAB) – a high technological company has announced the global market introduction of the new Series of Universal Sensors and Transducers Interface (USTI-MOB) integrated circuit for smartphones and tablets sensor systems applications.

The new IC has the similar functionalities as the TAB's integrated Universal Frequency-to-Digital Converter (USTI) but a reduced supply voltage (2.7 V) and active current consumption (< 3 mA). The IC is available in four packages: 28-lead PDIP, 32-lead, 7x7 mm, Thin Profile Plastic Quad Flat Package (TQFP), 32-pad, 5x5 mm and 4x4 mm, Quad Flat No-Lead/Micro Lead Frame Package (QFN/MLF).

"This novel IC has excellent metrological performance: ±.0005 % relative error in a broad range of measurement from 0.25 Hz to 2 (32 MHz), and wide functionalities (26 measuring modes). It lets to design various sensors systems for smartphones and tablets very easy and quickly", - said Dr. Sergey Y. Yurish, R&D Director of TAB. "Due to advanced design approach and novel technologies we have eliminated existing technological limitations for analog and mixed design inherent to modern CMOS technological processes below 100 nm. This opens a door for increasing smart system integration level and lets to integrate a lot of different sensors into smartphones and tablets by the same manner" - added Dr. Yurish.

Technology Assistance BCNA 2010, S. L. will exhibit on SENSOR+TEST' 2013 Exhibition in Nuremberg, Germany on 14-16 May 2013. Please visit our booth: 12-391 and product presentation 'Smart Sensors for Smartphones: How to Make it Smarter ? ' in Forum Hall 11, Thursday, 16 May 2013 at 13:30.
