Silicon Designs Introduces Universal MEMS Capacitive Accelerometer Modules
August 12, 2011, Issaquah, Washington, USA – Silicon Designs, Inc.
has announced the global market introduction of its
Available in eight different models and in both single axis and triaxial
versions, the Silicon Designs 60 Series features measurement ranges from 2 g
to 400 g. These rugged, lower cost sensors offer reliable high-precision
shock, vibration, and acceleration measurements across a broad range of
automotive, aerospace, industrial, power generation, and test and
Design of the new 60 Series combines either a single model, or three
orthogonally block-mounted models, within a single epoxy seam-sealed
anodized aluminum housing. Silicon Designs' 100% in-house manufacturing and
rigorous testing processes, along with the incorporation of additive
micromachining and integrated circuit technology, result in a highly
reliable MEMS capacitive sensor tailored for zero-to-medium frequency
instrumentation applications. In addition, the company's own proprietary
manufacturing technology allows for on-board voltage regulation and an
internal voltage reference, making the units relatively insensitive to
temperature and voltage changes and eliminating the need for external power
amplification and regulation.
All modules are easily mounted to a test article or fixture via glue, epoxy,
or two #8 or M4 screws. Carefully regulated manufacturing processes ensure
that each sensor is consistently made to be virtually identical, allowing
users to swap out modules with little or no testing modifications, saving
both time and resources. This also allows test engineers to provide a quick
plug-and-play solution for almost any application, with total trust in the
accuracy of sensors used within published specifications.
