This webcast reviews the critical requirements of smoke detectors and how and why those requirements are evolving. We discuss the major types of detectors and their advantages / disadvantages. Finally, we discuss miniaturized backscatter solutions, enabled by the ADPD188BI. For example the ADPD188BI uses two color detection which enables more advanced particle classification.

Attendees will learn:

  • Changes in regulations and impact on design
  • Differences using a backscatter approach
  • Overview of Analog Devices Smoke Detection solution
