Inertial Systems

MEMSIC’s inertial systems provide end-users and systems integrators with fully-qualified MEMS-based solutions for measurement of static and dynamic motion in a wide variety of challenging environments, including; avionics, remotely operated vehicles, agricultural and construction vehicles, and automotive test.

MEMSIC’s success in developing innovative sensor modules and integrated sensing systems is the result of its combined expertise and intellectual property in sensor characterization, MEMS sensor integration algorithms, and market-specific operational and performance requirements. In addition, MEMSIC’s inertial products are designed and tested to meet industry-standard and/or customer-specific environmental requirements, and many are approved for safety-critical applications by government agencies such as the Federal Aviation Authority (FAA).
