Figaro Engineering Inc. specializes in the research, development, manufacturing and marketing company of gas sensors and gas detection equipment. In 1968, Figaro Engineering Inc. became the first company in the world to develop and commercialize semiconductor gas sensors. Globally, major concerns in the fields of gas detection, air quality control, HVAC appliances, and the automotive industry have relied on Figaro Engineering Inc. for gas sensing products. Based on its extensive and broad-based experience in developing and manufacturing gas sensors, Figaro continues to expand its expertise into new areas of gas detection.
Through the incoperation of new technology new gas sensors manufactured with MEMS technology are extremely small at 0.99mm×2.5mm×3.2mm. In contrast to conventional MOS-type gas sensors that are characterized by high heat output, Figaro’s MEMS sensors do not output high amounts of heat. In addition to achieving sufficient miniaturization, ensuring long-term durability and robustness presented further challenges. By successfully addressing these challenges, Figaro Engineering has proven its prowess in the field of extreme products.
