NPP Surface Mount Pressure Sensors


The NPP Series of Surface Mount Pressure Sensors features a miniature ultra-high stability SenStable® piezoresistive chip placed in a surface mount plastic package. The sensor monitors pressure in industrial and automotive applications by producing a voltage output that is linearly proportional to the input pressure. The user can add signal conditioning circuitry to amplify the output signal or to maximize OEM value added.
