Accelerometers

MEMSIC accelerometers and tilt sensors are shipped into millions of automobiles and consumer products every year.

MEMSIC’s unique thermal technology uses heated gas molecules to detect acceleration and is the fundamental principle behind our accelerometer IC products.  This technology offers several advantages over the solid proof-mass structure, including:

  • No measurable resonance (immunity to vibration)
  • Virtually indestructable (50,000g shock tolerance)
  • No stiction
  • No detectable hysteresis
  • Excellent zero-g offset stablity
  • Sensor & electronics integrated onto monolithic IC

 

To see the range of MEMSIC accelerometer components and modules, view the selection tables below.
