SDP3x - Differential Pressure Sensor
The SDP3x is the world's smallest differential pressure sensor. It measures just 5 mm x 8 mm x 5 mm, opening up new dimensions of integration and application possibilities. The sensor is based on the next generation of the CMOSens® sensor chip and is the heart of Sensirion's new sensor platform for measuring differential pressure and mass flow.
The SDP3x differential pressure is ideal for the measurement of mass flow in a bypass configuration. The sensor is reflow solderable, provides extended functionality, such as multiple I2C addresses and interrupt functions and a fast sampling time. Like all Sensirion differential pressure sensors, the SDP3x features excellent accuracy and long-term stability and has no zero-point drift. All this makes Sensirion's differential pressure sensor of the SDP3x series the perfect choice for high volume and cost-sensitive applications, where small size is essential.
The digital and fully calibrated and temperature compensated differential pressure sensor are available in different versions. The digital SDP31 sensor and the analog SDP36 sensor measure bi-directional pressure differences up to 500 Pa, while the digital SDP32 and the analog SDP37 measure bi-directional pressure differences up to 125 Pa. Sensor versions with other pressure ranges will be available later in 2016.
An evaluation kit is available that enables simple and cost-effective evaluation of the SDP3x differential pressure sensor.

Efficient Gas Flow Measurements in Bypass
Measuring gas flow in applications requiring high precision and cost-efficiency is a challenge. Experience in recent years has shown that microthermal flow sensors are superior to other technologies. Industries with exacting demands, such as automotive and medical technology, have recognized that microthermal gas flow sensors give their products decisive advantages. These manifest themselves in high long-term stability and precision even when flow rates are minimal, and the sensors’ suitability for cost-efficient and reliable mass production.
