July 19, 2017 – MEMSIC, a sensing solutions provider, announced the launch of its MDP200 Bi-Directional Differential Pressure Sensor for CPAP, breath detection, room pressure, damper control, flow hood, fume hood, filter monitoring and other applications where differential pressure performance is required.
Currently sampling, this pressure sensor will be shipping in commercial quantities by the end of this year.
Leveraging its thermal accelerometer technology and experience in consumer electronics, MEMSIC will be offering a differential pressure sensor for medical, HVAC and other applications.
The MDP200 pressure sensor is based upon MEMSIC’s MEMS thermal accelerometer platform, with hundreds of millions of units shipped into a diverse variety of automotive and consumer applications. This MEMs thermal technology enables the MDP200 to detect minute changes in flow induced by differential pressure. The suspended bridge microstructure inside the MDP200 allows it to reliably detect pressure changes from a range of 0.016 Pascal to 500 Pascal.
