Sensirion sells barometric pressure sensor division
Sensirion will intensify its focus on environmental sensor solutions and is selling its barometric pressure sensor division with immediate effect.
Sensirion is selling its entire product range of barometric pressure sensors. The products are known for their unrivalled performance and minimal size, and are particularly suited to the high-volume consumer electronics market. With this decision, Sensirion confirms its strategic direction towards environmental sensing, where the company is already the market leader in gas, humidity and temperature sensors. Barometric pressure sensors are used for motion detection and activity tracking for the high-volume consumer electronics market, which are not part of Sensirion's main strategic focus. The barometric pressure sensor line will become part of a new company with an existing range of sensor solutions and platforms. Sensirion believes its barometric pressure sensors will see even more success, which will in turn benefit customers. Further details about the sale are confidential. The sale does not affect the differential pressure sensor division.
