Silicon Altimeters for Consumer Electronics Apps...

Silicon Altimeters for Consumer Electronics Apps By Brian Dipert, Electronic Products 12/15/2011 Pressure sensors have long found use in various niche industrial designs, as well as in at least one notable high volume application: as a tire deflation early-warning indicator. More recently, traditional mechanical sensors have been supplemented (or perhaps more accurately, supplanted) by MEMS-implemented semiconductor approaches that can deliver improved accuracy and reliability, along with reduced cost. Now another volume opportunity has arisen, led by a handful of smartphones, tablets, and watches. What uses might such systems find for a silicon pressure sensor, and how can other technology advances both augment its capabilities and compensate for its shortcomings? This article will address these questions. Elevation determination An altimeter does not actually measure alt...
