TERPS

Just think

... how a silicon pressure sensor that is 10 times more accurate and stable than standard silicon sensors can improve your performance, enhance your safety and cut your costs in almost any pressure sensitive applications between -40 to 85 °C (-40 to 185 °F).

With 0.01% accuracy FS (100 ppm) and stability of 0.01% FS per annum (100 ppm) TERPS performs to quartz accuracy at half the cost and with fast delivery times.

The opportunities are immense when you think about it.

What's behind the technology?

Trenched Etched Resonant Pressure Sensor (TERPS) sensors differ from conventional RPT sensors in a number of ways. They use a different method of frequency detection, which produces a much higher output signal.
