Gas Sensors

Whether for air quality monitoring, safety or control, sensor applications have one common requirement: a reliable sensor component. ams’s ability to micro-machine sensor chips using standard silicon wafer technology allows it to produce consistently reliable sensors in high volumes for mass market applications. The AS-MLV-P2, CCS801 and CCS811 are high-performance sensor components that are highly sensitive to VOCs, which provide for superior measurement of indoor air quality. Produced using a combination of thin-film, thick-film and other patent-pending proprietary technologies developed by ams, the components are available in a package which offers the ultimate in design efficiency.

CCS801 and CCS811 are an ultra-low power VOC gas sensors for monitoring indoor air quality including Carbon Monoxide (CO) and a wide range of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs). These sensors can be used as an equivalent carbon dioxide (eCO2) sensor to represent eCO2 levels in real world environments, where the main cause of VOCs is from humans. CCS803 is highly sensitive to Ethanol and can be used for Alcohol breath analysis in consumer devices.
