Melanie Martella, Executive Editor of Sensors, presented gold, silver, bronze, and honorable mention awards to 12 exhibitors in four categories: Sensors; Sensor Components; Technologies; and Data Acquisition Products. Exhibitors submitted new product nominations and entries were judged on the basis of potential impact, application, distinctiveness, timeliness, and availability.
In addition to Martella, this year's panel of judges comprised Ed Ramsden from Lattice Semiconductor, and Deb Lickness and Bruce Upchurch from John Deere.
"All of the nominations demonstrated exceptional innovation, integration, and ease-of-use and all of them addressed real needs. We believe this year's winners will be leaders in the sensors marketplace and offer our congratulations to the companies recognized," said Martella. The following is a list of award recipients.
