Under Pressure


There are a lot of low-cost pressure sensors out there but many are made for surface mount, like the one at the left, which is fairly huge for a surface mount part. You are expected to solder the gold leads of this pressure sensor to a┬áprinted circuit board (PCB) or adapter. What about when you are still designing your system and have not made a PCB yet?
