Abstract-The behavior of a pressure transducer with Au-Ni (89:11) film as strain gauges have been studied. The effects of post-deposition heat treatment on the resistance of the thin-film strain gauges and hence the output performance of the pressure transducer are discussed. The effect of a repeated number of pressure cycles carried out over a period of eight months has also been reported. The maximum nonlinearity and the hysteresis is improved from 0.92% FSO to 0.06% FSO after 1000pressure cycles. The output behavior of the pressure transducer with temperature has also been studied.
