B5.1 - Integrating Sensors Into Mechanical Structures

J. Wilde, T. Fellner & R. Zeiser
The conventional technology to integrate sensors into mechanical structures utilises mechanical attachment of completely packaged sensors. The reason is that the protection of the device must be assured and that the specifications can be verified on the device level. In the case of structure-integrated sensors we will regard transducers for mechanical properties like force, stress or strain, which are mounted directly on a component. This allows much more compact solutions and reduced packaging effects. Two...
