Making sense of sensing technology

More and more, you’re designing products to interact or react to the surrounding environment. This is what’s putting the ‘edge’ in edge devices that are driving the Internet of Things (IoT). You want precision performance in near real time. This requires the most advanced sensor components to make it happen.

Avnet Silica filters through all of the options to make sense of all things sensors. Our product mix covers every type of sensor you’ll need including motion, proximity, environmental, audio and image. We go the extra mile with experienced technical experts and sensor design tools to help you quickly create a complete sensor signal chain.

A sensor for all locations and situations

Your products operate in a lot of interesting environments and you need sensors that match. Most likely you’ll need more than one type of sensor to make your application work. When you work with the Avnet team, you get access to every sensor technology in either discrete components or integrated modules.

  • Atmospheric & gas sensors
  • Audio sensors    
  • Electrical sensors    
  • Flow sensors    
  • Integrated sensor modules
  • Magnetic sensors    
  • Motion & position sensors
  • Optical sensors    
  • Pressure sensors
  • Proximity & touch sensors
  • Thermal sensors
  • Time-of-Flight sensors

We’ll work with you to review the different options we carry for each of sensor type. Our technical team will help you navigate through the details to match the right performance features with your objectives.
