TE Connectivity's SMI SM7000/SM6000/SM5000 series pressure sensors offer pressure ranges from 0.07PSI to 2.49PSI in a gage, differential or asymmetric differential configuration. This series provides a JEDEC standard SOIC-16 package with dual vertical or horizontal porting option. With the dual porting, a reference measurement is possible to minimise errors due to changes in ambient pressure.
Combining the pressure sensor with a signal-conditioning ASIC in a single package simplifies the use of advanced silicon micro-machined pressure sensors. The pressure sensor can be mounted directly on a standard printed circuit board and a high level, calibrated pressure signal can be acquired from the digital interface. This eliminates the need for additional circuitry, such as a compensation network or microcontroller containing a custom correction algorithm.
