Barometric Pressure Sensor Hits The Lows

TDK announces the InvenSense ICP-10100, an ultra-low noise and ultra-low power MEMS capacitive barometric pressure sensor. The ICP-10100 reportedly achieves the industry’s lowest pressure noise of 0.4 PaRMS, attains the industry’s lowest power consumption of 1.3 µA, and ensures excellent temperature stability with a temperature coefficient of ±0.5 Pa/°C. The combination of high accuracy, low power, temperature stability, and waterproofing in a small package footprint enables improved activity identification, mobile indoor/outdoor navigation, altitude-hold in drones, and extends battery life of always-on motion sensing applications.

 

InvenSense ICP-10100 is currently available in wide distribution. In addition to the ICP-10100 in a 2 x 2 x 0.72 mm waterproof package, InvenSense is sampling to strategic customers the ICP-101xx pressure sensor family in a 2 x 2.5 x 0.92 mm industry-standard package footprint, and the entire ICP-101xx pressure sensor family will be available in wide distribution in February.
