Texas Instruments Introduces Low-Power Humidity Sensors
Moisture affects system performance and product longevity of applications in vehicles, appliances and medical equipment. From extending the life of produce during transport and storage, controlling air quality and flow in buildings, and keeping automotive cameras clear of fog, the need for improved reliability and healthier/comfortable environments has increased the adoption of relative humidity sensors.
Texas Instruments recently introduced the first devices in a new family of humidity sensors that provide low-power consumption along with built-in protection of sensing elements. The HDC3020 and HDC3020-Q1 will allow engineers to create more reliable industrial and automotive systems that withstand potential damage caused by moisture, and react as needed to changing water vapor conditions over time.
