Silicon Microstructures, Inc. is a premier developer and manufacturer of MEMS-based pressure sensors for a range of markets, with years of experience and expertise in low-pressure and harsh environment products that meet today’s stringent requirements for medical, automotive and industrial safety. Silicon Microstructures’ design, production and quality control processes have enabled it to develop both the lowest pressure and smallest pressure sensors available on the market today.
Silicon Microstructures SM5882 Pressure Sensors feature a dedicated custom signal conditioning ASIC combined on a single die which minimizes the size and simplifies the use of silicon micromachined pressure sensors. Silicon Microstructures SM5882 Pressure Sensors can be mounted directly to a standard PCB and an amplified, high-level, calibrated pressure signal can be acquired from the digital interface or analog output. This eliminates the need for additional circuitry, such as a compensation network or micro-controller containing a custom correction algorithm. The SM5882 pressure sensors are based on SMI's highly stable, piezoresistive pressure sensor chips mounted into a SO16 plastic package. The model SM5882 is designed for operating pressure ranges at 0.6PSI (4.1kPa) and 1.5PSI (10.3kPa).
Silicon Microstructures SM5852 Ultra-Low Pressure Sensor combines pressure sensor technology with CMOS mixed signal processing to produce an amplified, fully conditioned, multi-order pressure and temperature compensated sensor in a DIP-8 package. Silicon Microstructures SM5852 ultra-low pressure sensor is designed for an operating pressure range of 0 to 0.05PSI (0-1.5 in water). Combining the pressure sensor with a custom signal conditioning ASIC in a single package simplifies the use of advanced silicon micromachined pressure sensors. The pressure sensor can be mounted to a standard PCB and an amplified, high-level, calibrated pressure signal can be acquired from the digital interface or analog output.
