To evaluate the quality and performance of a MEMS silicon die, customers must rely on specifications, at least until they can test parts for themselves. This article will discuss the most common specifications related to these pressure-sensor dies. The primary thing to understand about MEMS dies is that when they are exposed to either pressure […]

After 30 years of designing and manufacturing pressure sensors, we at Merit Sensor are happy to see our products used in so many applications. In the past year we were fortunate to support the surge in global demand for mechanical ventilators (read more here), while we continued to support other medical applications, such as blood-pressure […]
At the heart of every MEMS pressure sensor is a MEMS silicon die. Merit Sensor owns and operates a wafer fab, where it produces all of its own MEMS die. Packaging a MEMS die requires specialized equipment and skills to handle the small and sensitive die and to perform delicate wire bonding. Therefore, many customers […]
Merit Sensor has owned and operated a wafer fab from its beginnings. Fabricating our own MEMS (micro-electro-mechanical systems) sensing elements, or die, is something that sets us apart from other pressure sensor manufacturers, many of whom source their MEMS die from foundries or suppliers. Producing our own wafers, which are diced into individual MEMS sensing […]
As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, many people have been in hospitals under critical care this year. These patients require beat-to-beat blood-pressure monitoring, which helps clinicians see important vital signs about the patient in real time over the length of the critical-care treatment and make clinical decisions accordingly. Therefore, continuous, reliable monitoring of a […]
Merit Sensor has a long history of supplying products to the medical-device industry. We are owned by Merit Medical, a leading manufacturer and marketer of disposable medical devices used in interventional, diagnostic, and therapeutic procedures. A couple of the products we supply for medical applications are the BP Series for monitoring blood pressure, where accuracy […]
Merit Sensor, a subsidiary of Merit Medical, has been closely monitoring the impact of COVID-19 and the effects on our operations, supply chain, and personnel. We want to assure you that we are taking every precautionary step to ensure that you receive uninterrupted support from our company. Merit has formed a COVID-19 operations task force […]
We would like to inform you of our latest trade show updates. They are as follows: The MEORGA MSR-Spezialmesse that was scheduled for March 25th in Frankfurt, Germany, has been cancelled. Our distributor in Germany, Delta Regeltechnik, plans to represent Merit Sensor at the next MEORGA MSR-Spezialmesse that is scheduled for May 27th in Leverkusen, […]
We take pride in our pressure sensors and like to show what they can do. Recently at the Sensor+Test trade show in Nuremberg, Germany, we used a diesel-particulate filter (DPF) to demonstrate how our sensors can be used to indicate when a DPF is clogged with particulate and needs to be regenerated. A couple of […]
