Sensirion offers what it describes as the ultra-lower power gas sensor SGPC3. The sensor makes indoor air quality sensing available for mobile and battery-driven applications. With an average supply current of less than 0.07 mA, the SGPC3 can provide indoor air quality measurements with several years of battery lifetime. Based on Sensirion’s SGP multi-pixel platform the SGPC3 offers a complete gas sensor system integrated into a very small 2.45 x 2.45 x 0.9 mm3 DFN package featuring I2C interface and a fully calibrated and humidity-compensated air quality output signal.
The company’s MOXSens Technology provides the SGPC3 with a robustness against contamination by siloxanes resulting in long-term stability and accuracy. The combination of ultra-low power consumption and long-term stability makes the SGPC3 the perfect choice for indoor air quality monitoring in mobile and battery-driven smart home applications. Evaluation and testing is supported by application notes and example code; the SGP evaluation kits are also available through Sensirion’s distribution network. For more info, checkout the datasheet.
