MEMSCAP (NYSE Euronext: MEMS), the leading provider of innovative solutions based on MEMS (micro-electro-mechanical systems) technology, today announces that MEGGITT AVIONICS has selected MEMSCAP to provide some key components for their flight instruments.

Headquartered in the UK, MEGGITT AVIONICS is part of MEGGITT PLC, a global engineering group specialising in extreme environment components and smart sub-systems for aerospace, defence and energy markets.

MEMSCAP supplies MEGGITT with standard and customised versions of its TP 3100 pressure module transducers in both Absolute and Differential configurations, that have been designed and qualified to be fully integrated into the MEGGITT Air Data Units. MEMSCAP also supplies MEGGITT with Dual Port Pressure Transducers for the MEGGITT Secondary Flight Display equipment.

The heart of any air data computer is the pressure sensor itself. The accuracy of the entire system is based on the sensor. The long term drift, the predictability and the repeatability of the transducer’s performance greatly affect the system performance.

MEMSCAP pressure transducers enable the accurate measurement of Altitude and Airspeed which are a key element of the system to help pilots better maintain the altitude, and control airspeed. MEMSCAP transducers have been selected for their high accuracy, stability and repeatability, combined with compactness and exceptional reliability.

MEMSCAP’s proven ability to provide documented, high quality certified software and a high level of timely customer support were important factors in MEGGITT’S final decision to select the Group as a primary source.

"MEGGITT AVIONICS considers MEMSCAP an important supplier for its flight instruments. We look forward to having a strong and dedicated relationship with MEMSCAP" says Joe Morgan, Director Sales & Marketing for MEGGITT AVIONICS.

“MEGGITT is a world leader in components and sub-systems for aerospace, defense and energy markets”, states Jan Hallenstvedt, General Manager of MEMSCAP Standard Products Business Unit. “Being chosen by MEGGITT AVIONICS and establishing a long term relationship between our companies demonstrates once more the unique performance and outstanding reliability of MEMSCAP products”.

MEMSCAP modular aerospace products are designed for all the aeronautics control systems worldwide, and their applications range from engine control, altitude and cabin pressure control, air data, to altimeters, air speed indicators and space applications.
