The NPC-120 Series is manufactured in a class 1000 clean room to minimize possible sources of contamination. A specially designed, silicon, micromachined sensing element is used to meet or exceed all industry requirements, while minimizing assembly and test cost for maximum customer value. Thick-film laser trimming is employed for final compensation and calibration. Sensitivity is maintained to ±1% and linearity is better than 1% in the physiological operating pressure range.

The NPC-120 Series is batch-manufactured in ceramic plate form and shipped as an intact array or as single sensors packaged in Tape and Reel format for easy customer automation. This assembly method draws from well-established manufacturing techniques used in the electronics industry in order to produce a quality, high volume product.
