Types of Sensors SunMan's Expertise Include (click for more information):

Our team has worked with many types of optical sensors including those mounted on a PCB as well as off-board sensors. We have designed and integrated numerous types of systems, using various types of sensors. SunMan will review all the specifications and accuracy of the sensor, how the sensor output signal varies with environmental factors such as temperature and power supply voltage, as well as the best way to interface it to the electronics.

SunMan's team has proven expertise in the design of various controllers that take and process signals from sensors.
