haha, here an excerpt from sensing monthly 😉 a new way to measure CO2 (OK, not new, but new in that size/price range), and yes, affiliated…
and TDK announced also something rather new: https://www.tdk.com/en/news_center/press/20210108_01.html
traditional CO2 sensors are NDIR, much bigger and more expensive (and not SMT compatible)
Thanks for the episode!
Bosch in Dresden: “Manufacturing of automotive microchips will be a primary focus”. Remember Germans build cars 🙂

About the lm3194, maybe you could use a micro, an ADC, and a bank of input switches to scan over a set of analog lines instead? Maybe some gain control also… Kind of silly to replace one but for a whole load maybe even cheaper?
