SMI Launches Catheter Mountable Pressure Sensor
SMI launches new SM1120 catheter mountable pressure sensor for the 1-French catheter market. With an industry-leading in vivo stability, design engineers will appreciate the high level of performance, miniature size, and quality.
Milpitas, California (PRWEB) March 26, 2015 – SMI (Silicon Microstructures, Inc.), a global MEMS pressure sensor company, today announced it has launched the SM1120 MEMS based ultra-miniature pressure sensor designed especially for the 1-French catheter market. The microsensor profile at only 220um x 75um provides ample space for 1-French catheter designs, enabling maneuverability to reach challenging locations. With industry leading in vivo drift performance of 2 mmHg per hour, the SM1120 provides a broad operating pressure range from 0 to 1,100 mmHg absolute. Pad options include gold, platinum and solder bumped for design and manufacturing flexibility.
At the heart of the SM1120 is the MEMS pressure transducer with SMI’s novel and proprietary silicon technology platform. With SMI’s technology, the user can attain the highest level of accuracy as demanded of the stringent medical industry. Design engineers will appreciate the design flexibility and repeatability of the SM1120. Samples are readily available for design-in and user evaluation.
“The SM1120 provides manufacturing flexibility by providing various wirebond pad options.”
“We are very excited to introduce the new SM1120 ultra-miniature pressure sensor for the 1-French catheter market,” notes Omar Abed, CEO at SMI. “We believe the incredibly small form factor, high accuracy, and world class stability of this sensor will enable medical customers to measure pressure in localized areas and to achieve more precise diagnosis.”

SMI Launches Digital MEMS Low Pressure Sensor
SMI launches the new SM9541 MEMS low pressure sensor for the stringent medical and industrial markets. With an industry leading accuracy, at less than 1%, design engineers will appreciate the high level of performance, stability, and quality.
Milpitas, California (PRWEB) September 18, 2014 – SMI (Silicon Microstructures, Inc.) introduces the SM9541 MEMS low pressure sensor Series designed especially for cost sensitive applications that need very high accuracy. The unique gage and differential offering allows for optimal signal resolution and diagnostics capability. The 14-Bit resolution and 1% accuracy provide the user high performance while the 0.2% full-scale offset stability per year provides the reliability and long-term reliability needed for critical applications. Available in low pressure ranges of 10, 20, 40, and 100 cm·H2O (0.14, 0.3, 0.6, and 1.4 PSI). The SM9541 stands to revolutionize the low pressure sensor market with an I2C digital interface coupled with the highest accuracy and stability in the industry. Custom solutions are available for custom pressure and temperature ranges.
At the heart of the SM9541 is the MEMS pressure transducer with SMI’s novel and proprietary silicon technology platform. With SMI’s technology, the user can attain the highest level of accuracy with long-term high performance as demanded of the stringent medical industry. Mating with the MEMS pressure sensor is a state-of-the-art signal-conditioning IC providing full pressure calibration and temperature compensation with a user-friendly I2C digital interface. The pressure sensor housing is based on surface mount technology standards and features an industry standard JEDEC compliant SOIC-16 footprint for straight-forward PCB design and assembly. Design engineers will appreciate the design flexibility and repeatability of the SM9541 Series. Fully qualified and in production, the SM9541 is ready for design-in and user qualification.
“We are very excited to debut the SM9541 Series to the Medical and Industrial markets. Our new MEMS sensor technology is the culmination of our low pressure expertise and we expect it will impress designer engineers,” said David Kertes, Vice-President of Sales at SMI.
