Disclosed is a hermetic pressure sensor (100) for measuring a fluid pressure. The pressure sensor comprises a hermetic housing comprising a membrane section one which at least one strain sensing element (120) is attached. The housing comprises a first housing structure (114,116) and a second housing structure (112). The first housing structure comprises the membrane section. The second housing structure comprises a housing part (112A) with at least two openings and electrical connection pins (112B) passing through the at least two openings. The electrical connection pins are affixed in the at least two openings by a non-conductive and hermetic sealing material (112C). The first housing structure and the second housing structure are hermetically connected to each other. The first housing structure comprises a fluid facing outer surface to be exposed to the fluid pressure wherein the fluid facing outer surface is a full metal outer surface.

Featured are devices, systems and methods for testing an electronic device, such as an integrated chip. Such a testing method includes disposing a thermal clutch between a variable heat sink that absorbs heat energy and a heat source member that selectively delivers heat energy. When the thermal clutch is operated in a first manner the thermal clutch thermally couples the variable heat sink to the electronic device under test (DUT) and when operated in the second manner, the thermal clutch thermally de-couples the variable heat sink from the DUT. Also, when the thermal clutch is operated in the second manner, the heat source member is thermally coupled to the DUT and is operated so as to produce heat energy which is thus provided to the thermally coupled DUT.

Disclosed is a temperature sensor (100). The sensor comprises a mineral-insulated supply line (108), a bottomed metal tube (102) and a temperature sensing element secured in a support structure. An open end part (102B) of the bottomed metal tube is connected mechanically to the mineral-insulated supply line. A wire connection mechanically and electrically couples the temperature sensing element to the mineral-insulated supply line. The support structure is permanently moveable in axial direction of the bottomed metal tube in a bottom end part (102A) of the bottomed metal tube.

In an embodiment, a sensor substrate includes a first end, a second end, and a body. The body contains provisions for accommodating one or more sense elements. The first end and the second end contain attachment points for attaching the sensor substrate to a shaft. In addition, the first end and the second end include curved portions. For a particular end, a spacing of the attachment points and/or a depth of the curved portion may define, in part, a flexibility of the end. This flexibility may be used to control a sensitivity of the sense elements.

Methods and apparatus for reduction of non-linearity errors in automotive pressure sensors. A pressure sensor includes a pressure sensing element including a pair of parallel electrodes, a pair of ceramic plates, rigid glass seals and a connection between the pair of parallel electrodes and an integrated circuit (IC). The IC executes a linear mapping function of a 1/C_(x) value after a C_(x) value is captured from the pressure sensing element, C representing a capacitance, the linear mapping function reducing a non-linearity error to enable two point calibration of a relationship between pressure and capacitance.

A hermetic pressure sensor for measuring a fluid pressure includes a hermetic housing, formed of a first housing structure with a membrane section, a second housing structure hermetically connected to the first structure, and one or more strain sensing elements attached to the membrane section. The second housing structure includes openings for one or more electrical pins while a non-conductive hermetic seal holds the electrical pins in place. The pressure sensor measures the pressure of fluid entering the housing while also providing a hermetic seal.


Featured are systems and methods for measuring differential and absolute pressure of a flowing fluid/gas in a fluid system. In such a method the fluid system is configured with first and second pressure taps that are spaced from each so the second pressure tap is downstream of the first pressure tap in a direction of flow. An absolute pressure sense element and a differential pressure sense element are provided, where the absolute pressure sense element is first fluidly coupled to one of the first or second pressure tap to measure an absolute pressure representative of the flowing fluid/gas. The differential pressure sense element is second fluidly coupled to each of the first and second pressure taps so as to measure a differential pressure of the flowing fluid/gas between the first and second pressure taps.
