An all-digital interface, application specific integrated circuit (ASIC) has been developed for the control and data sampling of a quartz crystal microbalance (QCM)-based electronic nose. The ASIC is capable of measuring QCM resonant frequency between 0 and 11 MHz with a resolution of 1 Hz and ±1 Hz precision. The ASIC has been used to obtain measurements from polymer coated QCM sensors, in conjunction with polymer/carbon-black coated micro-resistance (μR) sensors, in the detection of primary alcohols. A full system-on-a-chip (SoC) electronic nose, currently under test, which supports arrays of eight QCM and eight μR sensors along with on-chip processing capability, is also described. © 2004 Elsevier B.V.
