Ultra-miniature sensors

Jon Lawson

Coto Technology Inc has just-released RedRock RR110 analog sensor, RR120 digital sensor, and RR130 digital switch. With a standard SOT-23 package, these devices are half of the size of Coto’s CT05 molded reed switch.

The high-performance RedRock RR110, RR120, and RR130 have numerous technologically-advanced applications in multiple markets.

Offering both high sensitivity, small package size, and a highly-competitive price, the devices are suited to the demands of next generation medical, automotive, instrumentation, and industrial applications. The tiny sensors offer high magnetic sensitivity with high hysteresis, EMF resistance, and a small package size, all while consuming very little power.

The RR110, RR120, and RR130 meet the strict power constraints of battery-operated portable devices and electronics, suiting the needs of emerging medical device applications including ingestibles and implantables.

The small package size addresses the needs of current medical applications including portable insulin pumps, capsule endoscopes, next generation hearing aids, insulin pens, medical wearables, and other small, battery-powered medical electronic devices. Other applications include consumer smart wearables, high precision fluid level sensing, security and anti-tampering, ‘wake up’ mode switching on a microprocessor, and more.
