Still focused on industrial and building applications with low volume, the gas sensor begins to penetrate the consumer market. It is a change in the market and volume.

AMS bought AppliedSensor in July 2014 in order to enter this growing market. Winning strategy with the integration of the first sensor for the Consumer in a home monitor from Withings.

The AV-MLV-P2 is a volatile organic compound gas sensor which can detect alcohols, aldehydes, ketones, organic acids, amines, aliphatic and aromatic hydrocarbons.

With a very small footprint, less than to 3mm², the die sensor of the AV-MLV-P2 is well adapted to consumer applications.

Coming from industry, the technologies of AMS/AplliedSensor are reliable, robust, accurate and mature. The die is based on a Metal Oxide sensitive layer made on a micro hotplate. This allows a low power consumption: 34mW in continuous operation.

The experience of AppliedSensor in specific nitride layers explains the very thin membrane. A platinum heater and an electrode structure complete the micro hotplate.

The report provides all details on the structure of the component and the supply chain to produce this MEMS sensor. The report includes a detailed technology and cost analysis describing the innovations of AMS AplliedSensor.
