Honeywell’s FSA Series Piezoresistive-Based Force Sensors


The FSA Series are piezoresistive-based force sensors offering a ratiometric analog or digital output for reading force over the specified full scale force span and temperature range. They are fully calibrated and temperature compensated for sensor offset, sensitivity, temperature effects, and nonlinearity using an on-board Application Specific Integrated Circuit (ASIC). Direct mechanical coupling allows for easy interface with the sensor, coupling with tubing, membrane or a plunger, which provides repeatable performance and a reliable mechanical interface to the application.

Potential Applications


  • Ambulatory non-invasive pump pressure
  • Infusion pumps
  • Kidney dialysis machines
  • Occlusion detection


  • Load and compression sensing
  • Variable tension control

TE’s Waterproof USB 2.0 Connectors

TE Connectivity (TE) has introduced its IP68 waterproof micro USB 2.0 connector, an upgrade to the IP57 splash-proof model, to provide stronger protection for today’s smaller and thinner mobile devices against the ingression of water and solid objects such as dust.

TE’s waterproof micro USB connectors use a metal injection molded (MIM) shell to achieve the IP68 standard. The stainless steel metal injected shell replaces the traditional stamped and formed shell — which typically contains a lot of holes and is less usable for waterproof connectors — to provide best possible strength against wrenching and false insertion and reduce the shell height by 0.3mm.

Key Applications:

  • Home Electronic Devices
  • Smartphones
  • Tablets
  • Wearable Devices
