Accelerometers

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

MEMSIC offers both a unique thermal technology using heated gas molecules to detect acceleration and a monolithic, single-chip capacitive technology that is extremely low in power. 

These technologies each offer several advantages, and provide every customer with a broad range of options and design features to fit an application's need.
