Demystifying Piezoresistive Pressure Sensors

Semiconductor components that use new signal processing techniques for piezoresistive pressure sensors have enabled precise, automatic, and low-cost electronic compensation of the standard error parameters. The resulting simplification and convenience have opened a wide field of new applications, including the use of bridge sensors for properties other than pressure.
