Understanding MEMS Piezoresistive Pressure Sensors: A Close Look at a Silicon Die

Are you considering using a MEMS piezoresistive pressure sensor for your application? Or would you simply like to know more about piezoresistive technology on silicon dies?

Merit Sensor designs and manufactures compensated and uncompensated pressure-sensor packages but also the MEMS silicon die at the heart of those packages. 

In this webinar Scott Sidwell, former engineering manager and current sales and business development manager at Merit Sensor, discusses the different types of pressure sensors with a primary focus on MEMS silicon die.

Watch this webinar to:

  • Understand what type of pressure sensor is most cost-efficient and offers the best performance for your end application
  • Understand the most important performance specifications for MEMS piezoresistive pressure sensors
  • Understand the benefits of buying from a pressure-sensor supplier that owns and operates its own wafer fab

About Scott Sidwell:

Scott joined Merit Sensor in September 2003. As the Site Engineering Manager he was responsible for design and manufacturing quality and for moving the wafer fab from California to Utah. Prior to working for Merit Sensor, he served in a variety of engineering capacities with semiconductor companies, such as ON Semiconductor and Motorola. In his current role he works closely with customers to provide pressure-sensor solutions and technical support. Scott received a chemical-engineering degree and MBA from Brigham Young University.
