Miniature Analog Design

Design Note #8

Miniature Analog Design

“Smaller! And use conventional technology.” Electronics is not the message in the world of high-vacuum industrial control where miniaturization, reliability, accuracy and day-in, day-out performance really count.

Pressure Sensor Product Family

Orchid Technologies Engineering and Consulting Inc. performed the electronics design and packaging engineering required to retrofit a family of low cost, highly reliable solid state sensors onto our customer’s existing venturi-vacuum pump product line. Working within our client’s demanding maximum size constraints, Orchid developed a line of miniature analog pressure sensor products which boast big features:

  • 15.0 to -15.0 psi Range
  • 0.0 to 150.0 psi Range
  • Manual Hysteresis Set Point
  • Manual Trip Set Point
  • NPN Output Stage
  • PNP Output Stage
  • 0 to 20mA Output Sensor
  • 0 to 10V Output Sensor
  • 24 VDC Powered
  • 1% Accuracy over Range and Temp

Analog Design Packed Under One Cubic Inch

Drawing from Orchid’s years of analog design know-how, we crammed state-of-the-art electronics into a package volume smaller than 1.0 cubic inch. A panelized circuit board design augmented with circuit board assembly options completes the picture by holding inventory costs down.
