In this study, a silicon base piezoresistive pressure sensor using flip chip and flex circuit packaging technologies is studied, designed and analyzed. A novel designed pressure sensor using flip chip packaging with spacer is employed to substitute the conventional chip on board or SOP packaging technology. Subsequently, a finite element method (FEM) is adopted for the designing of the sensor performance. Thermal and pressure loading is applied on the sensor to study the system sensitivity as well as the thermal and packaging effect. The performance of novel packaging pressure sensor is compared with that of the conventional one to demonstrate the feasibility of this novel design. The findings depict that this novel packaging design can not only maintain well sensor sensitivity but also reduce the thermal and packaging effect of the pressure sensor.
