This sensor uses an integrated silicon pressure sensor with on-chip signal conditioning, temperature compensation and is calibrated.
This piezoresistive transducer is a state–of–the–art monolithic silicon pressure sensor designed for a wide range of applications. This transducer combines advanced micromachining techniques, thin–film metallization and bipolar processing to provide an accurate, high–level analog output signal that is proportional to the applied pressure.
The sensor was initially designed for engine control to sense absolute air pressure within the intake manifold. This measurement can be used to compute the amount of fuel required for each cylinder.
Board Dimensions: 3.1 x 3.3 cm
Mounting Holes: 2.3 x 2.5 cm

Use the following equation to determine the Pressure in KiloPascals (kPa).
Pressure = SensorValue x 0.25 + 10
