Low-Cost Pressure Sensor Eyes Medical, Automotive, And Industrial Arenas

The MDP200 bi-directional differential pressure sensor is designed for CPAP, breath detection, room pressure, damper control, flow hood, fume hood, filter monitoring, and other applications where ultra-low differential pressure performance is required. The pressure sensor is based upon the company’s MEMS thermal accelerometer platform, an ultra-sensitive MEMs thermal technology that enables the MDP200 to detect minute changes in flow induced by differential pressure.  A suspended bridge microstructure allows it to reliably detect pressure changes from a range of 0.016P to 500P.  Currently sampling, the MDP200 will be shipping in commercial quantities by the end of this year.
