On dimensions
In reply to boggis the cat, Oct 22, 2011

When an FT sensor is reported to be 13.0x17.3 mm all we can either assume is that it is 13±0.05 mm tall and 17.3±0.05 mm wide which means the area must be somewhere between 223.39 mm² and 226.42 mm². Or maybe they just truncated the dimensions in which case we are dealing with a sensor with the dimensions 13.05±0.05 mm by 17.35±0.05 mm in which case the area is between 224.9 mm² and 227.94 mm². As we can't know what they did when reporting the dimensions, all we can do is to assume that the area of the sensor is between 223.30 mm² and 227.94 mm² or as 225.62±2.32 mm².
