Direct-to-Digital, A Better Way to Sense the World

Eric Smith, Executive Advisor, SigmaSense Have you ever tried to build a high-resolution data acquisition system, only to find that most of the signal of interest is buried in a sea of various noise sources? These noise sources will ultimately determine your practical Signal-to-Noise Ratio (SNR). But in order to sense the world around us, […]

New Expectations in the Automotive Cockpit Propel HMI Innovation

Steve Sedaker, SVP Automotive, SigmaSense The proliferation of mobile devices employing touch in everyday activities sets user expectations for smooth touch in any environment. Yet user expectations for interface, robustness and simple reliability are still lagging in new vehicle implementations. Compared to mobile phones, touch response in larger screens is sluggish, often limited to single-finger […]

Long Line Sensing without Limits

Long line sensing

True pillar-to-pillar sensing with features defined in software Steve Sedaker, SVP, Automotive As the average size of displays in automobiles grow, so does the need for sensing across the larger viewing surfaces with seamless and programmable touch support outside the display area. Large area touch surfaces with programmable controls are redefining HMI for the cockpit. […]

SNR is KING

The importance of SNR in real life Gerald Morrison, CTO, SigmaSense Signal to Noise Ratio (SNR) is a key factor in every aspect of life. It is defined as the scientific measure that compares the level of a desired signal to the level of background noise or to quantify how much a signal has been […]

A Decade in Touch Display – and the SigmaSense Revolution

“There are literally no limitations” Bill Dunn, LG-MRI Chairman Thanks to the ubiquity of smartphones and tablets, everyone of all ages inherently expects most displays to now be touch enabled. The same thinking applies to large format (55”-98”) Digital Out of Home (DOOH) displays, which is LG-MRI’s dominant product line.  With SigmaSense’s SDC100 touch controller, […]

Semiconductor Efficiency is Driving a Holistic Approach to Sensing in Electric Vehicles

Semiconductor Efficiency is Driving a Holistic Approach to Sensing in Electric Vehicles Touchscreens, battery monitoring, motor controls and autonomous driving are generating explosive growth in automotive silicon content. With the rapid shift in automobiles toward software-defined cockpits, smart motor controls, optimized battery management and autonomous sensing, the amount of semiconductor content is expected to grow […]

The New Microprocessor Wars Start Upstream for End-to-End Performance

The “Microprocessor Wars” are often compared to the Muscle Car Wars of the 1960s and 70s.   This new battlefield will pull in nearly every company that depends on data processing. However, winning is less about raw horsepower and more about efficiency, sensing latency, and results.  The stakes are now far higher, with priorities that are […]
