Smoke and heat detectors are a key aspect of safety in smart homes and other residential and industrial applications. Designed to monitor and alert occupants of danger, these safety devices must above all be reliable and accurate, with battery lifespans lasting multiple years and convenient use. In addition, demand is increasing for detectors that can accurately discern between real and nuisance sources, and avoid false alarms. As the smart home market continues to grow and consumers seek for all aspects of their homes to be more connected and self-reliant, smoke and heat detectors are no exception. Innovative new features include wireless connectivity, smarter sensing, and multi-protocol communication standards.
Our PMICs, converters, controllers, regulators, voltage reference, audio amplifiers, supervisory circuits, and watchdog timers make it easy to design efficient, long-lasting smoke and heat detectors. By offering highly flexible, reliable components across the signal chain, it’s never been easier to seamlessly integrate advanced features and improve reliability in without unnecessarily increasing total solution cost or BOM.
