Instrumems technology was developed at Princeton University by Prof. Marcus Hultmark and Dr. Gilad Arwatz. The company was founded to commercialize a new sensing technology capable of measuring flow, temperature, velocity and humidity of gases and liquids.
Instrumems superior sensors enable a broad range of new sensor-driven applications. Instrumems is headquartered in the heart of Silicon Valley in Los Altos, California.
Instrumems’ vision is to bring smart sensing solution to every device. The small size allows our sensors to be integrated into any device. The very high frequency response enables real-time applications and leads to extremely low power consumption, which is ideal for small battery operated devices.
We strive to develop innovative solutions coupled with powerful algorithms and software that put our sensor at the cutting edge of technology.
