Melexis offers two pressure sensors combining high sensitivity with strong linearity. Qualified to AEC-Q100, the MLX90815 and MLX90816 are discrete micro-electro-mechanical system (MEMS) devices for measuring absolute pressure in demanding environments. The MLX90815 is suitable for 0 to 30 bar (0 to 435 psi), while the MLX90816 covers full-scale pressures from 30 to 50 bar (435 to 725 psi). As pressure is applied to a micro-machined silicon pressure membrane, a differential voltage change occurs across the outputs of a connected piezo-resistive Wheatstone bridge while a bias voltage is applied to the bridge inputs. Sensors are suited to various pressure monitoring applications and feature an operational temperature range of -40 to 150°C (-40 to +302°F). Devices can be used in conventional non-aggressive media or incorporated into oil-filled sensor modules.

As ground vehicles employ more electronic sensing, control and communication systems, design engineers are increasingly utilizing more commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) modules. Though COTS slashes development time and costs, it’s still difficult for many military users to find COTS boards that meet their low-volume demands for ruggedization and redundancy.
