High-quality, low-cost automotive sensors are the key to making precise electronic engine control practical. This paper describes four automotive sensors: a temperature sensor, a linear position sensor, a rotary position sensor, and a crankshaft position sensor. The description covers the design approach, the test procedures, the production processes, and the quality assurance measures followed by an established high volume automotive supplier.
