  1. 2009/12/04 MPL115A1 - Miniature SPI Digital Barometer
The MPL115A1 is an absolute pressure sensor with digital output for low cost applications. A miniature 5 x 3 x 1.2 mm LGA package ideally suits it for portable electronics and space constrained applications. Low current consumptions of 5 μA during Active mode and 1 μA during Shutdown (Sleep) mode target battery and other low-power applications. A wide operating temperature range from -40°C to +105°C fits demanding environmental requirements.
MPL115A1 employs a MEMS pressure sensor with a conditioning IC to provide accurate pressure measurement from 50 to 115 kPa. An integrated ADC provides digitized temperature and pressure sensor outputs via a SPI port. Calibration Data is stored in internal ROM. Utilizing raw sensor output, the host microcontroller executes a compensation algorithm to render Compensated Absolute Pressure with 1 kPa accuracy.
The MPL115A1 pressure sensor’s small form factor, low power capability, precision, and digital output optimize it for barometric measurement applications.
