Digital relative pressure sensor MS5536 by AMSYS

Digital relative pressure sensor MS5536

The MS5536 is a high resolution factory calibrated gage pressure module. The leaded hybrids are compatible with standard PCB assembly technologies. The devices include a piezoresistive pressure measurement cell and an amplifier-A/D interface-IC. The 3-wire serial interface ensures simple communication with any microcontroller. The devices provide digital pressure and temperature information as 16-Bit data word each. In addition 64 bits of individual calibrated compensation coefficients are stored allowing a highly accurate software compensation of process spread and temperature effects.

The devices can measure bidirectional pressure differences between -1’000- +400 mbar / -400- +1’000 mbar and have a very low standby current and automatic power down mode after each conversion. The optimal compromise about refresh rate and average current consumption can be defined by the application software.
