Coto Technology Inc., North Kingstown, RI, has released the RedRock™ RR100 Micro-Electro- Mechanical Systems (MEMS)-based magnetic reed sensor that is ideally suited to the needs of medical, industrial, and other applications where small size, zero power operation, and hot switching capabilities are required. The RR100 sensor offers all of the advantages of conventional magnetic reed sensor technology in a package measuring only 1.11mm3.

Meeting the demands of next-generation medical applications, the sensor offers directional magnetic sensitivity, ESD resistance, and a robust wafer level package, all while consuming zero power.

The high-performance RedRock RR100™ can be used in portable insulin pumps, capsule endoscopes, next generation hearing aids, insulin pens, medical wearables, and other small, battery-powered medical electronic devices. It meets the strict power constraints of battery-operated portable devices and electronics, suiting the needs of emerging medical device applications, including ingestibles and implantables. Its small size and directional magnetic sensitivity allow for high-resolution fluid level and position sensing.
