Small Barometric Pressure Sensor from EPCOS
July 8, 2009
EPCOS AG, Munich, Germany, offers the T5000 and ASB1200E compact, packaged MEMS sensors for barometric pressure measurement. The 1.7 by 1.7 by 0.9 mm consumer-product-oriented T5000 and the 3 by 3 mm ASB1200E incorporate a piezoresistive MEMS sensor element from Aktiv Sensor, are optimized for an absolute pressure measurement of 300–1200 mbar, and cover a measurement range of 20 mV/V/bar. The ASB1200E, with a gel-protected SS pressure port and supplied in a conventional package, is suited for barometric applications that are exposed to high humidity. Applications include portable navigation devices, watches, and mobile phones.
