Running Projects
Climate Control Sensor
Integrated Thermo-Optical Sensor
Developed by Vishay, this automotive climate control sensor is used to determine the
position and angle of the sun. The sensor’s unique package combines a photodiode
and thermocouple in a custom-molded lens. The information delivered by the sensor
triggers the dual-zone climate control system to boost the speed or lower the
temperature of the air directed toward the sunny side of the car.
Rain Sensor
When water hits a car’s windshield, Vishay’s custom rain sensor - mounted on the
inside of the glass - measures the degree of change in light being reflected off the
windshield to determine the rate of falling rain. The sensor incorporates several baredie infrared emitters, phototransistors, and photodiodes manufactured in Vishay’s
own fabrication plant with in-house assembly, lens designing, and molding.
Steering Angle Sensor
This steering angle sensor developed by Vishay offers extremely high resolution
in determining the position of the steering wheel, the direction of steering, and the
velocity at which the wheel is being turned. The high-quality results delivered by the
sensor are a result of its 12-phototransistor sensor design.
Climate Control Sensor
Dual Zone
Developed by Vishay, this dual-zone climate control sensor measures the power
and direction of sunlight. This information is used to distribute cooling to different air
outlets in order to achieve a comfortable temperature for all passengers in the car.
Custom angle-mounted photodiodes and custom holders are implemented in the
sensor’s design.
Printer Sensor
For over 15 years, Vishay has been creating custom printer sensors that offer
excellent performance, high reliability, and unique designs. Vishay printer sensors are
able to detect manuscript size, paper, and toner intensity, find the top / edge of media
in a print zone, and determine the presence of the drops ejected by each of the print
head’s nozzles.
