Rogue Valley Microdevices, a full-service precision MEMS foundry, and AerNos, an innovator in nano gas sensors, announced a strategic partnership to manufacture ultra-miniature gas sensors that are small and affordable enough to use in mobile devices, wearables, and Internet of Things (IoT) devices for smart city and smart home initiatives.
AerNos gas sensors offer significant advantages over the gas sensors currently available in the market. In addition to their small size, low power, and affordability, AerNos gas sensors can detect multiple gases simultaneously, a major improvement over competitors that can detect just one-two gases. Capable of measuring at parts per billion (ppb) levels, AerNos gas sensors are extremely accurate, offering product developers a state-of-the-art solution at a form factor that will help make personal environmental monitoring accessible to all.
AerNos’s MEMS-based 3 mm x 3 mm sensor chip leverages innovations in AerCNT technology, using hybrid nanostructures to simultaneously detect specific gases such as nitrogen oxides, ozone, carbon monoxide, sulfur dioxide, hydrogen sulfide, methane, formaldehyde, and other volatile organic compounds (VOCs). The AerNos technology has the potential to transform the way that air quality is measured in both indoor and outdoor environments.
“From the food we eat to the water we drink, detecting potentially harmful levels of contaminants is becoming increasingly important,” said Jessica Gomez, founder and CEO, Rogue Valley Microdevices. “Monitoring the air we breathe is equally vital but also…
