MEMSIC Inc. has introduced a bi-directional differential pressure sensor for CPAP, breath detection, room pressure, damper control, flow hood, fume hood, filter monitoring and other applications.

The MDP200 pressure sensor is based on MEMSIC’s microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) thermal accelerometer platform. This technology enables the MEMS sensor to detect minute changes in flow induced by differential pressure. The suspended bridge microstructure inside the pressure sensor allows it to reliably detect pressure changes from a range of 0.016 Pascal to 500 Pascal.

THE MDP200 pressure sensor is currently sampling and the device will be shipping in commercial quantities by the end of the year.
