1. A device, comprising:
a substrate;
a thin film resistive semiconductor metal oxide (SMO) sensor over the substrate;
a resistive heater over the substrate and disposed adjacent to the thin film resistive SMO sensor;
a resistive temperature sensor over the substrate and disposed adjacent to the resistive heater; and
a thermal insulation structure in the substrate between the resistive heater and the substrate, the thermal insulation structure including support pillars surrounded by an air gap.
