Figaro Engineering Inc. is a Japanese company, specialized  in the development and manufacturing of gas sensors and gas detection equipment.

In 1960’s Figaro Eng. was the first company in the world to develop and sell semiconductor gas sensors.

The Figaro sensors detect several type of gases, and the main application in which these sensors are used concern air quality control,  HVAC and automotive industry.

Thanks to its Know-How in sensor field and the more than 20 years of experience, Figaro Eng. continues to research and develop new sensors, in order to find out new areas in gas detection, and it is now world leader in this field.

One of the result of this development is new IAQ gas sensor TGS8100 based on MEMS technology.
