    Imaging processes show what is hidden underneath the skin. Unconventional layout and connection technology is opening up new opportunities for computer tomography.

  2. Safe Practices For Healthy Blood
    11/19/2018

    Patients whose kidneys no longer function correctly must undergo replacement therapies such as dialysis. One German medical technology group is relying on First Sensor to allow dialysis patients to have an active everyday life.

  3. The Rise Of Cobots
    11/19/2018

    Until a few years ago, working with collaborative robots, or "cobots", was possible only if an array of safety precautions were adhered to. The trend toward taking machines previously housed in cages and allowing them to work more closely with human colleagues as collaborative systems calls for equipment such as sensors that monitor a robot's surroundings, give it dexterity when it grasps objects or determine its position in the room. Sensors thereby enable humans and machines to interact more safely and with greater freedom.

  4. How Innovative In Vitro Diagnostics Is Saving Lives

    When it comes to a heart attack, every second counts. But help often comes too late. Around 50,000 people die of acute myocardial infarctions every year in Germany. Two thirds of them could be saved by treatment in the first 90 minutes. Together with its partners, First Sensor has developed a sensor system for in vitro diagnostics.

  6. Selection Of The Right Pressure Sensor
    3/21/2017

    Selecting a pressure sensor for an application includes choosing both the pressure range and the type of pressure measurement. Pressure sensors are designed to measure a certain pressure in comparison to a reference pressure, which can then be divided into absolute, gage, and differential devices. 

  7. LDE/LME Series – Application Advantages
    11/30/2015

    The LDE/LME series of differential pressure sensors are based on a new and innovative MEMS technology that integrates a micro-flow channel with the silicon sensor chip. This application note presents several advantages that the LDE/LME series of differential pressure sensors has to offer.

  8. LDE/LME Series – Superior Immunity To Humidity
