Smart sensor


A sensor integrated with signal processing circuits.

A smart sensor is the combination of a sensing structure and signal processing circuits (for purposes such as impedance conversion and thermal compensation), both fabricated on the same chip. The primary purpose of the integration is to minimize the noise and drift of the signal during transmission. Additionally, intelligent information processing is expected. Various types of smart sensors have been developed such as accelerometers or pressure sensors.
