Piezoresistive Pressure Sensor.

Piezoresistive Pressure Sensor.

Piezoresistive Semiconductor material printed on a flexible membrane structure. The stretching of this structure translates itself in a change in resistivity of the material. Measurement circuits can be co-simulated with build-in electronic components.

In a simple example we have simulated a piezoresitive film on a deforming beam. The results map the change in resitivity that can be observed at the area of highest deformation.
