Pressure Profile Systems, Inc. has announced DigiTacts sensors based on capacitance rather than resistance. Units differ from earlier versions by providing direct digital outputs (3.3 or 5 V) rather than raw analog voltage levels. Small and flat (less than half a millimeter thick), the devices provide pressure readings from 0 to 140 kPa in 0.7 kPa increments.
