Cambridge CMOS Sensors wins MEMS crown
The award was presented by Karen Lightman MEMS Industry Group executive director during her closing remarks for the two day event held earlier this month. Five companies had been shortlisted and got to present their technologies and the winner was decided by a vote of the attendees.
Cambridge CMOS Sensors, a 2008 spin-off from Cambridge University, has developed a hotplate-based metal-oxide gas sensor that offers, small size, low power consumption and rapid response times. The company saw off competition from the NeOse odour indentification system from Aryballe Technologies; Touch-Free Life Care (TLC) wireless health-care monitor system from BAM Labs; the Demox Reader from CSEM (Swiss Centre for Electronics and Microtechnology); and the Rv2 motion-based energy harvest system from EnerBee.
