TDK Corporation announces the InvenSense ICP-10100, an ultra-low noise and ultra-low power MEMS capacitive barometric pressure sensor. The ICP-10100 achieves the industry’s lowest pressure noise* of 0.4 Pa RMS, attains the industry’s lowest power consumption of 1.3 µA, and ensures excellent temperature stability with a temperature coefficient of ±0.5 Pa/°C.
The capacitive pressure sensor can measure extremely small pressure differences of ±1 Pa, enabling the ICP-10100 to detect altitude changes of less than 5 cm. With a temperature coefficient of ±0.5 Pa/°C, the MEMS capacitive temperature stable pressure sensor can operate over wide temperature ranges and a variety of applications.
The combination of high accuracy, low power, temperature stability, and waterproofing in a small package footprint enables improved activity identification, mobile indoor/outdoor navigation, altitude-hold in drones, and extends battery life of always-on motion sensing applications.
“InvenSense recently released the ICM-20789, the industry’s first 7-axis (3-axis accel, 3-axis gyro, 1-axis pressure) targeting the drone and wearable markets,” said Amir Panush, InvenSense Vice President and General Manager of the Motion and Pressure Business Unit. “The ICP-10100 expands our footprint into additional market segments of consumer electronics, IoT, and mobile – enabling our customers to achieve new use cases not possible with previous technology due to improved motion sensing capabilities.”
InvenSense ICP-10100 is currently available in wide distribution. In addition to the ICP-10100 in a 2 x 2 x 0.72 mm 1.5 m waterproof package, InvenSense is sampling to strategic customers the ICP-101xx pressure sensor family in a 2 x 2.5 x 0.92 mm industry-standard package footprint, and the entire ICP-101xx pressure sensor family will be available in wide distribution in February 2018.
