The MPL015A is an absolute pressure sensor with digital output for low cost applications. A miniature 5 x 3 x 1.2 mm LGA package ideally suits it for portable electronics and space constrained applications. Low current consumptions of 5 μA during Active mode and 0.06 μA during Shutdown (Sleep) mode target battery and other low-power applications. A wide operating temperature range from -40°C to +105°C fits demanding environmental requirements.
MPL015A1 employs a MEMS pressure sensor with a conditioning IC to provide accurate pressure measurement from 50 to 115 kPa. An grated ADC provides digitized temperature and pressure sensor outputs via an I2C port or SPI. Calibration Data is stored in internal ROM. Utilizing raw sensor output, the host microcontroller executes a compensation algorithm to render Compensated Absolute Pressure. The MPL015A pressure sensor’s small form factor, low power apability, precision, and digital output optimize it for barometric measurement applications.
