A brief overview of Renesas’ high-performance, digital flow rate sensor modules, which are suitable for both liquids and gases. The sensors have no moving parts, no fragile diaphragm over a cavity, and feature a layer of silicon-carbide coating. This eliminates clogged sensor elements and fluid pressure sensitivity, provides excellent shock resistance, and prevents chemicals from damaging the sensor element – problems inherent to other, common sensor architectures. The attention to these issues make Renesas’ solution especially desirable for use in medical, industrial, and FDA-compatible food-grade consumer applications where reliability, robustness, and cross-contamination are critical factors.
