Wireless sensor applications at elevated temperatures of around 200°C and above call for robust technologies such as surface acoustic wave (SAW) sensor designs. A combined pressure/temperature sensor with identification has been developed based on LiNbO3 substrate for condition monitoring applications in the baking industry. Due to the given temperature specification and to avoid adhesives, the design of the sensor was conceived as a classical beam arrangement supported by three balls. This paper presents an overview on the design process of the sensor beginning with the mechanical simulation of the sensor and the derivation of the SAW delay line to measure pressure, temperature, and to realize an ID functionality. The main result is a pressure sensitivity of 3.7 rad/bar with a temperature drift of 0.013 rad/°C. The sensitivity of the pressure sensor is also temperature dependent. This compound temperature drift can be compensated with the inherent temperature information of sensor.
