Infineon Presents Digital Turbo MAP Sensor at Sensor+Test

Infineon Technologies is introducing the new XENSIV absolute pressure sensor series KP276 at the Sensor+Test trade fair. It addresses applications such as the measurement of manifold air pressure (MAP) in aspirated or turbo (Turbo MAP) diesel and gasoline engines as well as exhaust gas recirculation.

Infineon Technologies

The digital sensor covers a pressure range of 10 kPa to 400 kPa, achieves very high accuracy, and provides fast measurement and communication.

The MAP is an important parameter to calculate the air-fuel ratio provided to the engine. Precise measurement helps increase combustion efficiency and thus reduces harmful emissions. In addition, manifold pressure data can be used to compute diagnostics of leakages and malfunctions of the exhaust gas recirculation valve.

Infineon has already planned a precise (0,5 percent FSS) product version. Furthermore, this version will be ISO26262 ready, providing all the analyses and documentation necessary for safety-critical applications.

The Key Features of the sensors include:

  • Increased media robustness for current automotive requirements
  • High accuracy pressure sensing (± 0.77% FSS)
  • Integrated signal processing for the external temperature sensor
  • SENT protocol interface
  • Real 12-bit pressure resolution
  • Real 12-bit temperature resolution
  • Self-diagnosis features
  • “Green” 8 pin SMD housing
  • Automotive qualified, AECQ-100

 The Target Applications of the KP276 series:

  • EGR (Exhaust Gas Recirculation)
  • MAP/TMAP (Manifold Air Pressure)
  • ORVR (Onboard Refueling Vapor Recovery)
  • NGV (Natural Gas Vehicle)
  • DPF (Diesel Particulate Filter)
  • GPF (Gasoline Particulate Filter)
  • Industrial control
  • Consumer applications
  • Medical applications


The XENSIV KP276 series is now available.
