Energy Micro Minimizing Energy Consumption in Resistive Sensing Applications

The ease with which resistance can be measured, coupled with the large number of simple, low-cost devices whose resistance changes with other physical properties, accounts for the wide range of resistive sensing applications. These include measuring temperature, pressure, humidity, position, displacement, etc. using electro‐mechanical devices like potentiometers or other transducers such as thermistors and piezo-resistive strain gauges.
