  • Publication number: 20200249110
    Abstract: Aspects of the disclosure provide a capacitive pressure sensor. The capacitive pressure sensor can include a first substrate having a first surface and a second surface, a movable plate at a bottom of a first cavity recessed into the substrate from the first surface, and a second substrate bonded to the first substrate over the first surface. A second cavity is formed between the movable plate and the second surface. The second substrate includes a fixed plate disposed over the movable plate to form a capacitor. The second substrate further includes a third cavity between a surface of the fixed plate opposite to the movable plate and a surface of the second substrate opposite to the first substrate.
