Honeywell, Minneapolis, MN, announced the Amplified Basic Pressure (ABP) sensors for small and low-power devices. The ABP sensors feature wet-media compatibility, as well as sleep mode and temperature output options, making them suitable for Internet of Things (IoT) applications. Measuring 8 x 7 millimeters, the sensors’ size enables engineers to save board space. The sensors feature a ±1.5 percent total error band (TEB), and can read pressure ranges from 60 mbar to 10 bar, 6 kPa to 1 MPa, and 1 psi to 150 psi. The sensors minimize the need for additional components, and are available in both analog and digital output I2C or SPI. Moisture sensitivity level of one allows unlimited shelf life when stored at <30 ºC/85% RH. Under most storage conditions, this allows the sensor to be soldered onto the PC board without concerns about solder joint quality due to aging of the sensor terminals.
