Using CO2 and humidity sensors against the pandemic:
Who is building a reliable CO2 traffic light for offices and rooms?


Scientists have proven that COVID-19 is primarily spread by aerosols in exhaled air. Aerosols do not pose such a threat outdoors with the recommended minimum distance. However, the situation is totally different in enclosed spaces. Viruses will often remain in the air for several hours indoors.

Supply fresh air or ventilate! You are no doubt familiar with this recommendation or instruction from your working and family life.

But what has COVID-19 got to do with the CO2 concentration and humidity in rooms?

The amount of suspended aerosols can be inferred from the CO2 concentration in the air. Hence, the quality of the indoor air, including its CO2 content and its relative humidity, is another indicator for a possible coronavirus infection risk. CO2 values of less than 1,000 ppm and a relative humidity of 40% to 60% are desirable.


ADVANTECH SMARC Computer-on-Modules:
High i.MX8M Performance on a small 82 x 50 mm footprint


High performance in an extremely compact space:
The new ADVANTECH SMARC 2.0/2.1 module with i.MX8M Mini processors offers high performance and excellent value for money.

You can choose between three processor cores for the desired performance class:

  • i.MX8M Mini Solo
  • i.MX8M Mini Dual
  • i.MX8M Mini Quad with four ARM Cortex A53 cores

With minimal power consumption, i.MX8M Mini CPUs are recommended as the ideal solution for "Low Power" applications. They cut a good figure in terms of price/performance in direct comparison with conventional i.MX8M CPUs.


In SLC technology for an almost unlimited service life:
KIOXIA Serial NAND Flash with fast Quad-SPI interface


For homogeneous memory design in a System-on-Chip (SoC).

KIOXIA's new product line in 24 nm Serial NAND flash technology supports SPI interfaces up to quad speed.

The new generation offers a higher clock rate as well as a four-times-faster programming speed. It also offers
8 Gbit storage density for the first time.

The Serial NAND Flash is packaged in a small WSON housing (6 x 8 mm). Extended functions, such as optional ECC support and security functions, are already integrated. The modules operate in an industrial temperature range from -40°C to 85°C.
