  1. Selection Of The Right Pressure Sensor
    3/21/2017

    Selecting the right pressure sensor for each application includes choosing not only the pressure range, but also the type of pressure measurement. Pressure sensors are designed to measure a certain pressure in comparison to a reference pressure, which can then be divided into absolute, gage, and differential devices. This application note describes these terms with the basis of First Sensor’s piezoresistive pressure sensors, and how to use these definitions in selecting the best pressure sensors.

  2. LDE/LME Series – Application Advantages
    11/30/2015

    The LDE/LME series of differential pressure sensors are based on a new and innovative MEMS technology that integrates a micro-flow channel with the silicon sensor chip. They can be optimized for different application requirements depending on whether high sensitivity, high dynamic ranges, or linear output signals are needed. This application note presents several advantages that the LDE/LME series of differential pressure sensors has to offer.

  3. LDE/LME Series – Superior Immunity To Humidity
