In this work, we describe the design implementation, validated by experimental results, of an innovative gas sensor array for wine quality monitoring. The main innovation of this integrated array deals with the simultaneous outputs, from a single chip on TO-12 socket, of 8 different signals coming from a WO3 thin film structure heated in a linear temperature gradient mode, allowing an overall evaluation of gas sensing properties of the material in a 100°C-wide window, typically from 300 to 400°C. The implemented sensitive layer is a WO3 film deposed by RF-sputtering. Preliminary tests of gas sensing showed good responses to the target analytes for the specific application (1-heptanol, 3-methyl butanol, benzaldehyde and ethyl-hexanoate).
