This paper describes fabrication and characteristics of metal thin-film pressure sensor for working at high temperature. The proposed pressure consists of a chrom thin-film, patterned on a Wheat stone bridge configuration, sputter-deposited onto thermally oxidized Si membranes with an aluminium interconnection layer. The fabricated pressure sensor presents a low temperature coefficient of resistance, high-sensitivity, low non-linearity and excellent temperature stability. The sensitivity is 1.097∼1.21mV/V$.$kgf/$\textrm{cm}^2$ in the temperature range of 25∼200$^{\circ}C$ and the maximum non-linearity is 0.43%FS.
