IN BRIEF: Intelligent monitoring systems for chips

Intelligent monitoring systems built into standard semiconductor chips could save industry huge sums in lost production by warning of critical equipment breakdown. A highly sensitive signal processing system, Tespar, developed by Domain Dynamics, can be run by a simple 8-bit micro-controller chip, making it ideal for fault detection in machinery when linked to noise or […]

Intelligent monitoring systems built into standard semiconductor chips could save industry huge sums in lost production by warning of critical equipment breakdown. A highly sensitive signal processing system, Tespar, developed by Domain Dynamics, can be run by a simple 8-bit micro-controller chip, making it ideal for fault detection in machinery when linked to noise or vibration sensors. Tespar can spot changes in complex signals, identify whether they are significant, and raise the alarm.
