SMI Introduces SM6842 MEMS pressure sensor

July 25, 2014 - Silicon Microstructure introduces the SM6842 MEMS pressure sensor designed especially for ambient pressure measurement and available in an absolute pressure range of 15 PSI (103kPa).  The pressure sensor housing is based on standard surface mount technology and features a JEDEC compliant SOIC-8 footprint for straight-forward PCB design and assembly. The small footprint is 5 x 6 mm2 including the leads with a height of just 7.6 mm to the top of the port providing flexibility in space challenged designs with a typical 127 mV output for signal-conditioning customization. The SM6842 with a vertical port enables interfacing with tubing or manifold designs for industrial applications to measure ambient pressure or space-constrained medical applications in Negative Pressure Wound Therapy (NPWT).  The SM6842 is especially designed for OEM applications enabling cost-effective, large volume manufacturing.
