Internal temperature correction function provides high accuracy relative pressure (altitude) characteristics from low to high temperatures

Features 1:Built-in temperature compensation function enables stable measurement

Conventional pressure sensors exhibit problems maintaining high detection accuracy at low temperatures. In response, ROHM integrates a temperature compensation function utilizing original compensation algorithms that covers both high and low temperatures, making high accuracy pressure detection possible even at low temperatures. In addition, this eliminates the need to incorporate temperature compensation within the MCU itself, reducing design load considerably.
