The sensor which work on piezoresistive effect are called as pressure sensors, piezoelectric pressure sensors are also called as strain gauge pressure sensors. Piezoelectric pressure sensors detect the strain/pressure that is applied on the strain gauge. Various thin films, thick films, bonded metal foil, silicon and sputtered thin film are the substrate of piezoresistive pressure sensor. By the help of piezoresistive pressure sensors one can measure, vacuum, absolute & differential pressure. Piezoresistive pressure sensors diverse application areas which are biomedical sector, automotive and household gadgets. Piezoresistive pressure sensors are the first products manufactured using micro electro mechanical system technology.
