Pressure sensors

Pressures are captured by miniature absolute silicon pressure sensors CPC100AFC from Honeywell. To have reliable and noise free pressure measurements these sensors, together with their DA converter (12 bit SPI output) are mounted inside the muscle. Both encoder and digital pressure signals are linked to a separate processor on the microcontroller, TPU, in order not t load the CPU whilst reading their values.
