Sensirion, a provier of sensor solutions, has released its second-generation WLCSP (wafer-level chip-scale package) humdity sensor, the SHTW2. This device comes in a flip-chip package and has a footprint of 1.3x0.7x0.5 mm. This makes it a pioneer in a new category of ultra-small humidity sensors suitable for applications in the tightest space constraints, the company states.
The SHTW2 is based on Sensirion’s CMOSens technology, which offers a complete sensor system on a single chip with a digital I 2 C interface. The sensor is fully calibrated and covers a humidity measurement range of 0 to 100% RH and a temperature measurement range of -30 to 100 °C, with a typical accuracy of ± 3% RH and ±0.4 °C. The operation voltage of 1.8 V and the low power consumption make the SHTW2 suited for integration in consumer electronics that run on the tightest power budgets, such as mobile phones, wearables and Internet of Things (IoT) applications.
