Sensirion expands CMOS sensor production

August 1, 2011 — Sensor manufacturer Sensirion inaugurated a new production building in mid-July 2011 in Stäfa, Switzerland, near to the company’s main building.

The building is slated to house Sensirion’s entire production, with development, administrative, and sales departments staying in the main building.

The new space features highly automated production lines in a three-story, 10,000sq.m. layout. Four clean rooms enable manufacturing of temperature, moisture, gas, differential pressure, and liquid-flow sensors. The largest ISO-6-certified cleanroom occupies 1,000sq.m. The design is energy-conscious, with geothermal/heat pump air conditioning and an internal cooling system with heat recovery. Safety was also a consideration, with automatic fire suppression systems, smoke extraction units, and autonomous fire compartments.

Sensirion constructed the production space to "avoid capacity bottlenecks" in organic growth.

The Swiss sensor manufacturer Sensirion AG supplies CMOS-based sensor components and systems. CMOSens technology uses intelligent system integration, including calibration and digital interfaces.
