Pressure Sensors for IoT
Small size, low power consumption and highest precision for air pressure sensing in consumer and IoT applications
Our XENSIV™ family of digital absolute barometric pressure sensors gives designers the best choice when it comes to mobile and wearable devices. Highlights include small form factors to facilitate system integration, highest precision and relative accuracy over a wide temperature range, fast read-out speeds via the serial I2C/SPI interface, and low power consumption to ensure longer battery lifetimes.
All of our air sensing solutions have a FIFO buffer that can store the last 32 measurements. Since the host processor can remain in sleep mode for a longer period between readouts, the FIFO buffer can reduce system power consumption further.
When can I use a XENSIV™ absolute pressure sensor for consumer applications?
Our DPS310 barometric pressure sensor is the number one option for applications where power consumption and precision are critical. If environmental protection is also required, our ultra-small digital barometric air pressure sensor DPS368 is the best match as it can be used in harsh environments due to its robustness against water, dust and humidity. In addition, it facilitates board handling in assembly lines.
Typical applications are
- Smartphones and tablets
- Smartwatches and wearables (e.g. activity tracking)
- Predictive maintenance in HVAC systems
- Home appliances (e.g. air flow monitoring)
- Drones (e.g. altitude control)
- and other IoT use cases.
