The elements or instruments measure the liquids or gas pressure. Pressure sensors convert the actual pressure into electronic signals that can be easily read. In addition to directly measuring pressure, these sensors can also infer other metrics such as the flow of fluids/gases, velocity, water levels, and even altitude. Known by a variety of names - including pressure transducers, pressure transmitters, pressure senders, pressure indicators, pressure gauges, and manometers - these versatile devices are integral to numerous sectors, from aerospace and healthcare to the petrochemical industry.
The development of MEMS chips largely determines the pressure sensor development. It is essentially semiconductor sensors. C.S. Smith discovered the piezoresistive effect of silicon and germanium in 1954. This effect meant that when an external force is applied to a semiconductor material, its resistance would change significantly. Based on this principle, a strain resistor was glued to a metal film to convert the force signal into an electrical signal, thus enabling pressure measurement.
This marked the birth of piezoresistive pressure sensors. Subsequently, along with the silicon diffusion technology, each anisotropic corrosion technology and after the 80's micro-processing technology, gradually bring the pressure sensor to the micron level and the large volume development stage.
The pressure sensor works by converting the applied pressure into electrical signals. And they measure and interpret electrical signals through control system and user interface. There are many types of pressure sensors, while most of them have the following working principles.
• Piezoresistive: This type uses diaphragm (usually made of silicon or a metal)，which leads to deformation in case of applied certain pressure. The resistance embedded strain gauges or piezoresistors have been changed due to the deformation. Then, it is converted into an electrical signal proportional to the applied pressure.
• Piezoelectric: Piezoelectric materials (such as quartz) are used among piezoelectric pressure sensors, which generates an electric charge when applied to pressure. The generated charge is proportional to the applied pressure. Meanwhile, it can be measured as an electrical signal.
• Capacitive: Capacitive pressure sensors have a diaphragm between two conductive plates. Once applied certain pressure, the shape of diaphragm and the distance between the plates will be changed, subsequently altering the capacitance. Meanwhile, changes in capacitance are measured and converted into an electrical signal.
There are just a few types of pressure sensor. Different types of pressure sensors have different advantages and disadvantages. The performance of pressure sensor depend on specific applications, required accuracy, sensitivity and environment conditions. However, it is worth mentioning that different types of pressure sensors have the same basic woring principle and function. This means pressure sensors convert the applied pressure into electrical signals for measurement and analysis.
