Xtrinsic MPL3115A2 provides a microelectromechanical systems MEMS pressure sensor with integrated i2C interface to provide an accurate Pressure / Altitude and Temperature Data. The sensor output are high resolution 24 bit ADC. Internal processing removes compensation tasks from the host Microcontroller system. Multiple user-programmable, power saving, interrupt and autonomous data acquisition modes are present including programmed data acquisition cycle and timing and poll only modes, typical active supply current at 40 uA per measurement-second for stable 10 cm output resolution. The MPL3115A2 driven power at 1.95v to 3.6v internal regulated by LDO, direct reading compressed on 20-bit pascal for Pressure and Altitude and 12-bit degree Celsius for the temperature, operates up to 400 kHz. Applicable for high accuracy Altimetry, Smart Phones and Tablets, PEA Personal Electronic Altimetry, GPS Dead Reckoning, GPS for Emergency Services, Mapping Assist for Navigation, and Weather Station Equipment.
