Compact sensor dies for automotive and IoT applications

Compact sensor dies for automotive and IoT applications
New miniaturised EPCOS MEMS pressure sensor dies have been announced by TDK. The automotive versions of the C33 series have dimensions of 1x1x0.4mm, making them what the company claims to be one of the smallest of their kind. They are designed for absolute pressures of 1.2-10 bar, and are qualified based on AEC-Q101. The typical operating voltage is 3V. With a supply voltage of 5V they offer sensitivities of between 15-80mV/bar, depending on the type.
