About TE Connectivity pressure sensors

TE Connectivity (TE) designs and manufactures pressure sensors ranging from the sensing element to system packaging for harsh environments. It is an industry leader for its range of both standard and custom pressure sensors, from board level components to fully amplified and packaged transducers. Based on piezoresistive Micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS) and silicon strain gauge (Microfused, Krystal Bond) technology, TE Connectivity's sensors measure everything from inches of water column (<5 mbar) to 100K psi (7K bar). Sophisticated design and advanced manufacturing techniques create reliable, cost-effective solutions for medical, HVACR, off-road, heavy equipment, hazardous locations, and general industrial applications.
