  1. Hello all,
    I am wondering if anyone has any idea where I can find info on
    building a Barometric altimeter. As light and small as possible because I
    want use it for Model Rocketry. I am hoping that some manufacturer has an
    inexpensive, one chip solution for this.
    TIA,
    Ed

    Hi Edward .
    Try TRF, I know there are quite a few links posted or a Google search will
    help.

  3. Cyclists have been using altimeters in their cycle computers for
    years. They are small enough to be worn as a wristwatch. Check out the
    cyclist sites. They might not have the response required for rockets,
    though.

    Regards,

    A Google search on Pressure Transducer will flood you with what you want.
