Barometric Sensor is Smallest Available
Measuring 2.2 mm x 2.6 mm x 0.9 mm, the T5300 digital pressure sensor from EPCOS is presented as the most compact packaged sensor of its kind. Designed for measuring absolute pressures from 300 to 1200 mbar, the sensor provides 14-bit resolution at the serial digital interface. Accepting a supply voltage from 2.7 V to 5.5 V, the piezoresistive MEMS sensor has a power consumption of 2 µA in sleep mode and less than 2 mA while operating. Data transfer is according to the I2C and SPI protocols. From $5 each per 1,000 units.
