The Hygrochip modules complement the sensor element portfolio of IST AG in a perfect manner giving the customer the possibility to select from a broad portfolio of calibrated modules using the outstanding IST humidity sensor technology (P14 technology). Therefore IST AG decided to acquire the Hygrochip business from Hygrosens. The change is already effective.
