  • Psibar® CVD Type Pressure Sensors

    Chemical Vapor Deposition manufacturing methods bond a polysilicon layer to a stainless steel diaphragm at the molecular level to produce a sensor with superior long term drift performance. Common batch processing semiconductor manufacturing methods are used to create a polysilicon strain gauge bridge with terrific performance at a very reasonable price. CVD construction offers excellent price/performance and is the most popular sensor for OEM applications.

    Sputtered Thin Film Type Pressure Sensors

    Sputtered film deposition creates transducers with maximum combined linearity, hysteresis and repeatability. Accuracy is as high as 0.08% full scale with long term drift as low as 0.06% full scale per year. Phenomenal performance for critical instruments -- Gems sputtered thin film transducers are the jewels of the pressure sensing industry.

    Capacitance Type Pressure Sensors

    Gems manufactures capacitance type pressure sensors for a wide range of high volume OEM specialty applications. Detecting the capacitance change between two surfaces allows Gems transducers to sense extremely low pressure and vacuum levels. Robust construction allows these units to be used in a wide variety of applications. Coupled with an ASIC, these units provide good price/performance in a host of packaging styles.

    MMS Type Pressure Sensors

    These transducers employ a micomachined silicon (MMS) diaphragm to detect pressure changes. The silicon diaphragm is protected from the media by an oil-filled 316SS isolation diaphragm; they react in tandem to process fluid pressure. MMS sensors utilize common semiconductor manufacturing techniques that allow for high proof pressure, good linearity, great thermal shock performance and stability in a thin sensor package.
