EDN has named Cambridge CMOS Sensors' CCS800 product family as one of the “100 Hot Products of 2014.” The 2014 EDN Hot 100 highlights the electronics industry’s most significant products of the year based on innovation, significance, usefulness, and popularity.

Cambridge CMOS Sensors is the industry leader in advanced sensor solutions providing sensor technology across multiple global markets. The CCS800 product family boast the smallest chemical gas sensors in the world, and can be used for detecting Ethanol (Alcohol), hazardous gases such as Carbon Monoxide (CO) and a wide range of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) for Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) monitoring. The unique CMOS based Micro-hotplate technology provides a silicon platform which enables the use of our gas sensors in application areas that have not been physically possible before now, such as smartphones, wearables and IoT devices.

Paul Wilson, Marketing & Applications Director at Cambridge CMOS Sensors said, "We are delighted to be named by EDN in the top 100 most significant new products in 2014 for the CCS800 product family, which are the world’s smallest and lowest power metal oxide gas sensors. Until now, gas sensing has not been technically or commercially possible in high volume portable consumer applications, and the CCS800 family changes all that.”

“Of the many thousands of products announced during the past year, the EDN Hot 100 are the products that especially caught the attention of our editors and readers. We are pleased to share the tradition of showcasing these technologies as we celebrate the 21st anniversary of this program,” said Rich Pell, Executive and Chief Technical Editor, EDN.
