TDK has introduced the ICP-10100 low power, waterproof barometric pressure and temperature sensor IC that is based on micro-electromechanical system (MEMS) capacitive technology. The IC delivers ultra-low noise at the lowest power, enabling industry-leading relative accuracy, sensor throughput and temperature stability. Measuring pressure differences with an accuracy of ±1Pa, the pressure sensor has accuracy enabling altitude measurement differentials as small as 8.5cm.
The device is available in a 2mm x 2mm x 0.72mm waterproof 10-pin LGA package. It is recommended for use in mobile phones, wearable fitness monitoring devices, drones and battery-powered Internet of Things (IoT) applications.
