MEMS Pressure Sensors Adjust To +/- Readings

Exploiting micro-electro-mechanical system (MEMS) technology, the MPXV7000 series pressure sensors measure ranges up to ±25 kPa and can adjust to positive and negative readings as needed. Consisting of three sensors, the MPXV7002, MPXV7007 and MPXV7025, the components measure positive pressure and vacuum conditions, making them viable for a range of consumer, industrial, appliance, healthcare, and automotive applications. Other features include a 5% maximum error over 0°C to +85°C, thermoplastic surface-mount packages, temperature compensation from -40°C to +125°C, and differential and gauge configurations. Otherwise identical, the MPXV7002 handles a pressure range from 2 to 2 kPa (-0.3 to +0.3 psi), MPXV7007 from 7 to 7 kPa (-1 to +1 psi), and the MPXV7025 measures 25 to 25 kPa (-3.6 to +3.6 psi). Prices are $6.66, $6.97, and $6.66 each/10,000, respectively. FREESCALE SEMICONDUCTOR INC., Austin, TX. (800) 521-6274.
