Control & monitoring
The reliable measurement of pressure is a success-determining measured value in the control and monitoring of large industrial plants in the chemical and pharmaceutical sectors, energy technology such as the oil and gas industry, food and agriculture, and medical technology. The subject area can be assigned to the megatrend “civil security for society”.
Piezoresistive silicon sensors have many advantages here. They are temperature and long-term stable, highly miniaturizable and can be coupled directly with the electronics in a silicon sensor system. Depending on the requirements, cross-sensitivities can be reduced and the operating temperatures can be adapted. As a multi-sensor system, other measured variables such as temperature are recorded simultaneously.
The CiS Research Institute has been developing and manufacturing silicon-based piezoresistive pressure sensor chips for industrial partners for 30 years.
