TDK Product Features
Pressure sensors based on piezoresistive MEMS technology are used in a wide range of applications in automotive and industrial electronics, medical engineering, and environmental technology. TDK's lineup ranges from miniature media-resistant pressure sensor elements with extended temperature ranges to high-precision pressure transmitters with analog or digital output. The InvenSense barometric pressure sensor family is based on MEMS capacitive technology which provides ultra-low noise at the lowest power, enabling industry leading relative accuracy, sensor throughput, and temperature stability. The pressure sensor can measure pressure differences with an accuracy of ±1 Pa, an accuracy enabling altitude measurement differentials as small as 5 cm, less than the height of a single stair step.
