Lowering the Costs of Applying Pressure Sensors by Mitigating the Risks
Design engineers are frequently challenged with making real-time, critical, pressure measurements in many applications while keeping a handle on solution costs. Electronic trade shows reveal how willing OEMs can be to buy unmounted, unpackaged (bare) pressure sense dies rather than opt for compensated, amplified sensor solutions. OEMs may want to build their own solution, or believe they can save money with less costly components. Knowing the ramifications can help mitigate risks, and provide a better chance for success.
