Abstract

Electronic noses have potential applications in daily life, but are restricted by their bulky size and high price. This review focuses on the use of chemiresistive gas sensors, metal-oxide semiconductor gas sensors and conductive polymer gas sensors in an electronic nose for system integration to reduce size and cost. The review covers the system design considerations and the complementary metal-oxide-semiconductor integrated technology for a chemiresistive gas sensor electronic nose, including the integrated sensor array, its readout interface, and pattern recognition hardware. In addition, the state-of-the-art technology integrated in the electronic nose is also presented, such as the sensing front-end chip, electronic nose signal processing chip, and the electronic nose system-on-chip.
Keywords: metal-oxide semiconductor; conductive-polymer; sensing front-end; electronic nose signal processing chip; electronic nose system-on-chip (SoC) metal-oxide semiconductor; conductive-polymer; sensing front-end; electronic nose signal processing chip; electronic nose system-on-chip (SoC)
