Invisible World of Aroma. Visualized.
What if, aroma bit is installed on smartphone, and you could post your favorite restaurant's sizzling food on SNS along with the aroma of it. What if, you have aroma bit sniff perfume, and you could tell its aroma in remote place.
A whole new horizon of possibility opened up - with aroma bit
Each of these smell adsorption membranes has different surface adsorption characteristics, enabing the sensor to detect and numerically analyze smell samples, which is a complex mixture of many unspecified chemical gas substances, as a specific response pattern.
It is generally known that the response patterns of similar smells are similar, and thus makes it possible, to create and develop a digital database library of smells to identify and discriminate one smell from the other.
The QCM type detects changes in mass caused by the adsorption/desorption of smell molecules on the membrane surface as changes in the resonance frequency of the quartz crystal. The frequency change value for each membrane is measured.
The CMOS type is smaller than the QCM type and has a different detection principle. It detects changes in the amount of electric charge on the surface of the sensor. By applying the ability of the CMOS sensor itself to store electric charge on its surface, the change in the amount of charge caused by the adsorption/desorption of smell molecules on the membrane is converted as numerical output data.
(*CMOS type is available from Aroma Bit Inc's subsidiary, Aroma Bit Silicon Sensor Technology, Inc. or ABSST)
Unlike conventional gas sensors, Aroma Bit's smell sensors can detect complex smell, and both 5Q-SSM (QCM) and 5C-SSM (CMOS) can be used repeatedly, for a variety of smell related applications.
Smell Imaging Sensor
System development kit designed to add smell sensor feature your products & system
[QCM type／CMOS type]
*For corporate customers only.
QCM (Quartz Crystal Microbalance) type: Changes in mass caused by the adsorption/desorption of smell molecules on the membrane surface are detected as changes in the resonance frequency of the quartz crystal unit. The frequency change value for each membrane is measured and converted into numerical data.
CMOS type*: Using the CMOS sensor's ability to store an electric charge on its surface, the sensor converts the data into numerical values by detecting the increase or decrease in the amount of electric charge that occurs when smell molecules are adsorbed/desorbed on the membrane.
