MEMS accelerometer is pin-compatible with quartz

November 15, 2018 // By Peter Clarke
Silicon Designs Inc. (Kirkland, Washington) has introduced the Model 2227-025 accelerometer module for use in inertial navigation and which is pin-compatible with quartz-based accelerometers.

The unit combines two patented, capacitive, silicon sense elements (U.S. Patent Number 4,736,629), together with a precision, custom CMOS integrated circuit, in a compact, low mass, hermetically sealed LCC package It is also suitable for some tilt switching applications

The rugged design of the Model 2227-025 MEMS accelerometer module. These ±25 g modules are assembled on open PCB with a circuit that converts the differential output voltage of the MEMS accelerometer into a current directly proportional to the amount of applied acceleration. 

Test samples of the Model 2227-025 are available for customer evaluation in North America and the UK. Two additional units with measurement capabilities out to ±10 g and ±50 g are expected to become available in January 2019.
