Sensors are now present in almost all aspects of daily life, from biometric sensors on mobile phones, to pressure sensors in airplanes that track altitude. They convert physical or chemical quantities into electrical signals that can be read and processed by electronic devices.
The electronic sensors industry is a global market that designs, manufactures, and sells electronic devices that detect and measure physical phenomena, such as temperature, pressure, motion, light, and sound. It is expected to grow significantly in the coming years, driven by the increasing demand for sensors in emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence, robotics, and the Internet of Things (IoT). New sensor technologies are being developed all the time, with researchers and manufacturers working to create sensors that are more sensitive, accurate, and efficient. This is leading to new and innovative applications for sensors in a wide range of industries, including wearable technology, security, medical devices, energy supply, manufacturing, safety, quality control and smart homes.
PI-KEM is proud to work with many researchers and developers within the sensors industry supplying them with a wide range of materials including substrates, wafers, precious metals, graphene, and sputter targets as well as material processing and depositing equipment.
