Die Sensor Fundamentals

This course provides a detailed review of the types, application, and manufacturing issues of die sensors. Many examples of die sensors will be used to illustrate how the selection, die variables, and positioning can effect the overall die performance. Cost effectiveness for low and high-volume production will also be discussed. Exercises will require students to determine the type and position of a sensor for a specific function in a die.
