EPCOS’s tiny sensor comes with MEMS packaging

February 20, 2009: EPCOS AG is introducing what the Munich-based company is calling the world’s most compact packaged sensors for barometric pressure measurement, and it comes with the firm’s chip-sized MEMS packaging.

With dimensions of only 1.7×1.7×0.9 mm2, the components are many times smaller than comparable competitor products and open up numerous applications for portable electronics, the company said in a news release.

A further advantage of the new sensors is the cost-effective CSMP (chip-sized MEMS package) packaging technology developed by EPCOS, the news release said.

EPCOS also offers a sensor variant in a conventional package with a gel-protected stainless steel pressure port. With a footprint of only 3×3 mm2 the ASB1200E SMD pressure sensor enables the further miniaturization of barometric applications that are exposed to high humidity, the company said.
