Co-locating electronics with sensors in hotter environments in aero-engines can make the overall engine system more accurate, reduce cabling and offer weight/cost/fuel savings. However, the hotter environment presents several challenges to conventional electronics and new semiconductors, passive components and assembly techniques are required.

This presentation will describe the work undertaken to design a high temperature electronics unit operating up to a temperature of 250oC, taking the output from several sensors, carrying out the signal conditioning, multiplexing, analogue to digital conversion and data transmission. Research into developing autonomous high temperature sensors involving energy harvesting will also be presented.

Steve has been an R&D Engineer at TWI and at GE Aviation. He has managed several UK DTI collaborative projects and an EU Clean Sky Project in relation to high temperature electronics. He presents regularly at conferences in the USA and UK.
