Title: Integrated Sensors : how leveraging the endless miniaturization to tackle the challenges of acquisition
Sensors are systems combining transduction and signal conditioning. The micro-nano technology processes have led to the miniaturization of the integrated circuits and MEMS. Beyond the dramatic reduction of the size of the sensors, the miniaturization of their fabrication also offers opportunity to address the challenge of performance, costs and robustness. Three use-cases -mechanical sensors, optical sensors, image sensors- illustrate the levers offered by the miniaturization in the design of MOEMS. In conclusion, the need for a design global approach in the miniaturization of sensors, i.e. including digital signal processing, is highlighted.
