Advances in sensing technologies are increasing the functionality of devices in many industries including consumer, wearable devices, medical, industrial and automotive. This functionality can be delivered at various levels of integration, in terms of number of diverse sensor types included in either a single package or sensor module. Sensor solutions are available to measure a range of physical properties including:
- Pressure sensors
- Atmospheric and gas sensors
- Audio sensors
- Electrical sensors
- Flow sensors
- Magnetic sensors
- Motion and position sensors
- Optical sensors
- Proximity and touch sensors
- Thermal sensors
Pressure Sensors: The Design Engineer's Guide
The Design Engineer’s Guide to Pressure Sensors was created to help you understand the types of sensors in common use, their operating principles, and their modes of use (absolute, gauge, or differential). Whether you’ve designed with pressure sensors before or not, this field guide is intended to provide a comprehensive overview of the technologies, insight into the various applications, and assistance in finding the sensor that’s right for your design.Learn More
