Variable Capacitance (VC) Accelerometers

By Bestech Australia

Variable Capacitance (VC) Accelerometers are dominant product of MEMS for both research field and sales market. MEMS (Micro-Electro-mechanical System) consist major elements of micro-sensor, micro-actuator, signal processor and logical control circuit, communication interface, power and etc. Capacitance accelerometer typically includes two parts: mechanical components and detect interface circuit. A variable capacitance acceleration sensor is manufactured using silicon microfabrcation and possessing advantages of high sensitivity, low power consumption, excellent linearity and independent of temperature.
Highly accurate and rugged industrial-grade capacitive MEMS accelerometers with integrated amplification from Silicon Designs are offered in eight standard ranges of 2 g to 400 g with a wide range of full-scale sensitivities. In addition, OEM of the MEMS accelerometer chips and modules are available with competitive pricing. Higher “g” accelerometers up to 20,000 g are provided on request.
