Magnetoresistive Sensors for Applications from Deep Down to Far Out
Magnetoresistive sensors are a niche product in a market dominated by Hall sensors. MR sensors find their use, whenever an application has special demands concerning operating temperature, radiation, precision, band width, or others. A few examples of established products will be shown to illustrate this. Furthermore, the challenges in ongoing development of TMR angle sensors for automotive applications will be discussed. An outlook to unmet market needs will be given to round of the presentation.

Surface Acoustic Waves (SAW) Devices as a Wireless, Batteryless and Packageless Sensors
Surface Acoustic Wave (SAW) devices offer very promising solutions in a wide range of applications including physical and chemical sensors. In addition to being small, simple and robust, these devices have the advantage of being passive (batteryless), remotely requestable (wireless), packageless and inexpensive if fabricated on a large scale. The use of SAW devices as passive and wireless sensors allows them to operate in extreme conditions such as those with high levels of radiation, high temperatures up to 1000°C, or electromagnetic interference, in which no other wireless sensor can operate. This is obviously conditioned by the fact that the materials constituting the device can withstand these harsh conditions. combined with flexible substrates, SAW sensors will find applications in the biomedical and welfare for a continous monitoring of the human body’s parameters.
In this lecture, general principle of the SAW sensor in wired and wireless configurations will be developed and a review of recent works in our group including the field of : high temperature applications, magnetic sensor, inertial sensors and biomedical ones.

SAW Sensors for applications in difficult and/or harsh environment
Surface Acoustic Wave (SAW) sensors are robust, small and completely passive elements that can be remotely interrogated. As they do not require any embedded electronics, they can operate in harsh or difficult environment. Some SAW configurations also make it possible to identify the sensor directly from its RF signature. The resulting SAW Tags can therefore provide identification (ID) and, for instance, temperature or pressure information simultaneously. It is also possible to interrogate several sensors at the same time. In this talk, we will present the developments that have been made at CTR (Carinthian Tech Research) in the field of SAW Sensors over the last 15 years. The CTR SAW Tags will be described as well as the simulation models and read-out technology we use to design and operate the sensors. Several examples of industrial applications will be presented and discussed, ranging from high temperature measurements in the steel industry to implantable sensors for intra-cranial pressure monitoring. New concepts for low pressure (SAW Pirani) and very high temperature (SAW Hybrid) will also be introduced.
Adv Research Staff Engineer, ST
ST’s Magnetic Sensors
The magnetic sensors developed with silicon technology are part of the semiconductor market with great opportunities. In the last years, Cobalt based thin film magnetic materials have been deep analyzed in the TR&D labs of STMicroelectronics. A general overview on ST’s sensors will be presented with particular focus on magnetic application.

ICEEL inputs to promote industrial R&D partnerships
Established in 2007 the ICEEL Carnot institute aims to develop research partnerships and benefits yearly of specific funds from the French Ministry of Research to do so. Thanks to incentive funding, the task of ICEEL is to promote R&D conducted by public laboratories and research transfer centers in partnership with socioeconomic stakeholders, mainly companies (from SMEs to large groups), in response to their needs.
