A pressure sensing device for measuring the pressure of a fluid, comprising: a measurement diaphragm which is at least partially made of semiconductor material, is provided with a first surface and a second surface which are exposed respectively to a first pressure and to a second pressure, and undergoes a deformation following the application of the first pressure and of the second pressure; and a resonant element made of semiconductor material which is provided with a first end portion and with a second end portion for mechanically coupling the resonant element to the measurement diaphragm, the oscillation frequency of the resonant element varying according to the deformation to which the measurement diaphragm is subjected; and first circuit means for generating a sensing signal which is indicative of the oscillation frequency of the resonant element. Its particularity consisting of the fact that the resonant element comprises second circuit means for increasing the intensity of the sensing signal which is indicative of the oscillation frequency of the resonant element, the second circuit means being integrated with the structure of the resonant element.
Please note there is up to 60 days of latency in this Status indicator for certain status conditions. You can obtain up-to-date Status indicator readings by ordering PAIR for the file.
An application with the status "Published" (which means it is pending) may be recently abandoned, but not yet updated to reflect its abandoned status. However, an application filed less than one year ago is unlikely to be abandoned.
A patent with the status "Granted" may be recently expired, but not yet updated to reflect its expired status. However, it is highly unlikely a patent less than 3.5 years old would be expired.
An application with the status "Abandoned" is almost always current, but there is a small chance it was recently revived and the status not yet updated.
