Presentation Summary

Infrared temperature sensors have a long, successful track record in medical and industrial applications. Unfortunately the state-of-the-art technology has some limitations (e.g. size, thermal stability, robustness and production scalability) preventing widespread adoption in consumer applications, EV and robotics. We will highlight recent advances in thermopile technology with miniaturization as a key strategy to remove aforementioned limitations.
