The D11 version of the SCP1000 is similar to the D01, but it communicates via a two-wire (I2C) interface, rather than SPI. The SCP1000 is the first absolute pressure sensor on the market to use MEMS technology.
This sensor has a 30kPa-120kPa measurement range at up to 17-bit resolution. Under ideal conditions, this sensor can detect the pressure difference within a 9cm column of air. On top of absolute pressure measurements, the SCP1000 can also measure and report temperature in the range of -20 to 70°C. The pressure and temperature output data is calibrated and compensated internally, and the communication between the SCP1000 and its host micro-controller is realized using an I2C interface.
Four user selectable measuring modes combine 17-bit resolution (9cm of air column) with low or ultra-low power consumption, or alternatively 15-bit resolution (18cm of air column) with high speed data read (9Hz) or less than 5µA and power consumption. For example, at Low Power mode, the SCP1000 has an overall resolution of 2 Pa (15cm of air column) and a power consumption of 3.5µA.
This component is a surface mountable device incorporating a circular vertical wall for easy waterproof sealing. This sensor comes in a newly developed plastic housing. Normal hot-air rework will destroy this sensor.Breakout board coming soon!
