Sensors are rapidly changing with increased functionality in MEMs technologies. The new MS8607-02BA01 exemplifies how new technology is creating amazing new sensors.
The MS8607 measures pressure, humidity and temperature in a small QFN package measuring only 5 mm3 x 3 mm3 x 1 mm3. Inside this small package is a piezoresistive sensor providing pressure and temperature and a capacitive-type sensor for measuring relative humidity. The measured signals are converted into a 24-bit digital value for pressure and temperature and a 12-bit digital value for relative humidity measurement.
The sensor requires 8 pads for operation, uses I2C communication and operates with a very low 1.8 to 3.6 supply voltage. With an operating pressure range of 10 to 2000 mbar, it has a pressure accuracy of ±2.0 mBar and pressure resolution of 0.016 mBar. For humidity, the measuring range is 0-100% rH with an accuracy of ±3% rH and a resolution of 0.04% rH. Finally, for temperature, the operating range is -40°C to +85°C with a temperature accuracy of ±2°C and resolution of 0.01°C.
The MS8607 is ideal for applications in the consumer and industrial marketplace, including smartphones, tablets, printers, HVAC applications, weather stations, home appliances, humidifiers and much more.
