Pressure Sensor

The CMOSTEK pressure sensor is an ideal solution for high precision measurement with an I²C interface to provide accurate Temperature, Pressure or Altitude data. The device digitizes the Pressure and Temperature signals by an internal high resolution 24-bit ADC. The Altitude value is calculated by a specific patented algorithm according to the pressure and temperature data. Data compensation is integrated internally to save the effort of the external host MCU system. Easy command-based data acquisition interface and programmable interrupt control is available. Pressure output can be resolved with output in fractions of a Pascal, and Altitude can be resolved in 0.01 meter.
