Sensors Expo & Conference 2018: Calibrated Sensor Simplifies In Vivo Pressure Measurements

Silicon Microstructures’ next generation of the IntraSense product line embarks as a fully temperature compensated and pressure calibrated version that simplifies setup and use. The company says it’s the first commercially available pressure sensor that fits into 1-French tubes and has pre-attached wires for ease of integration. With a calibration board now available on the proximal end of the device, setup and readout are even easier, with both amplified analog as well as digital outputs attached to a 5-pin connector.


The extremely small size of the sensor allows it to be attached to catheters, endoscopes and other equipment where space is at a premium. In addition to established pressure measurement procedures in cardiology and neurology, IntraSense allows equipment designers to add pressure-sensing functionality to new applications in urology, ENT, reproductive health, guided biopsies and other disciplines.

TE connector, relay and filter solutions can help create a fine maze network of power-cabling to the lights needed for vertical farming. Their solutions are interchangeable, easy-to-install, and will last for years in variable humidity environments.


Calibration and subsequent submersion in saline ensures stable performance (<1 mmHg change in output in 37°C saline) for at least twelve hours. The sensors are calibrated across a pressure range from -300 mmHg to +1300 mmHg, and from 0°C to 101°C. Users may use amplified analog outputs or an optional standard I2C digital interface for easy system integration.
