Linearity and Sensitivity Issues in Piezoresistive Pressure Sensors
This paper describes the various nonlinearities (NL) encountered in Si-based Piezoresistive pressure sensors. The effect of diaphragm thickness and position of the piezoresistors are analyzed, taking anisotropy into account. Also the effect of the oxide/nitride used for isolation between metal and diaphragm is studied from a linearity point of view.
