Contactless temperature measurement functionality is very difficult to integrate into a mobile phone. In spite of the difficulties contactless forehead thermometry is still the most promising way of realizing body temperature in a mobile application. Small size, reasonably small Field of View and stable operation in harsh thermal environments are three necessary boundary conditions. Although such features would be highly attractive for numerous industrial and consumer applications too, they cannot be fulfilled simultaneously by state-of-the-art infrared sensors. Melexis will explain how these challenges were overcome, applying wafer level packaging techniques to thermopile technology. The resulting sensor represents a key milestone in our roadmap towards a medical grade part.
This presentation also includes a demo of the novel sensor.
Joris Roels received both his master and PhD degree in electrical engineering from Ghent University and was granted two awards for his PhD research in the field of optical MEMS.
In 2010 he joined Melexis, a Belgium based company that develops, tests and markets advanced integrated semiconductor products as application engineer in the optical sensors business unit.
Since 2013 Joris is in charge of the infrared temperature sensors product line in the Sensors Business unit.
Melexis is a global supplier of micro-electronic semiconductor solutions and stands for engineering that enables the best imaginable future - a future which is safe, clean and comfortable. All of these aspects are reflected in the applications that our technology empowers; Belgium-based company, it designs, develops, tests and markets sensor, communication and driver chips mostly for automotive application but some of its unique technologies progressively address other adjacent markets such as industrial, robotics and medical, visit www.melexis.com
