Surging application fields of integrated electronics and sensors, as e.g., automation, internet of things (IoT), cyber-physical(-production) systems (CP(P)S), or Industry 4.0, require more able, versatile, and dependable sensor electronics and systems. In particular, cost effective features of self monitoring, -calibration, trimming, or -healing are sought after. State-of-the-art integrated components for sensor signal conditioning are usually not generic and dedicated to specific sensors or applications and are not offering self-x capability. Thus, based on a survey of existing solutions, a universal sensor interface IC with self-x features has been developed in a first step toward meeting this growing demand. In this paper, our universal sensor interface with self-x properties (USIX) chip will be described and exemplary application in a multi-sensor scenario for food quality and safety assessment with competitive recognition results will be presented.
