Micro-Machined silicon reduces the lead times needed to manufacture custom pressure sensors.
Several different transduction methods can
be used to convert pressure to a practical, measurable electrical signal. Most modern devices depend on the change in resistance of a metal foil or a semiconductor under a load. A signal-conditioning circuit converts the resistance change to a proportional electrical output signal. A Wheatstone bridge is the most common type ofconditioning" mashbutton="firstname.lastname@example.org"">signal conditioning circuit selected for this purpose.
