Acoustic Wave Sensor (SAW and BAW) Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Trends, Analysis, Growth, and Forecast 2017 - 2025
Acoustic wave sensors are a particular type of microelectromechanical systems, or MEMS, that depend on the use and modulation of acoustic waves in order to detect the presence of changes in a physical object or phenomenon. The acoustic wave sensor usually converts an electrical input into mechanical waves that can be influenced by the object or objects. This is because mechanical waves are easier modulated by physical phenomenon as opposed to electrical signals. Once a device receives the mechanical wave after being changed by the phenomenon, it is converted back into an electrical signal that can be compared to the original input signal. Changes in the electrical signal include time-delay between input and output signals, frequency, phase, and amplitude.
The wide array of applications for both surface acoustic wave sensors and bulk acoustic wave sensors include delay lines, transformers, oscillators, and filters. Both SAW and BAW applications in delay lines together provide additional advantages in terms of the signal wave technologies, such as in target generation in electronic warfare and in television and video communication sets. Surface acoustic wave sensors and bulk acoustic wave sensors both hold distinctive applications and advantages as well, and users can considers factors such as their footprint, frequency of operation, delay signals, and overall cost when applying these technologies in their projects.
The global acoustic wave sensors market is expected to grow at a considerable rate due to its competitive edge over other technologies. Acoustic wave sensors have various applications in automotive, industrial, and other industries. Acoustic wave sensors are gradually replacing conventional sensors, and are being extensively used in variety of applications such as industrial, consumer electronics, healthcare, automotive, military, and aerospace.
