MEMS Capacitive Accelerometers

Capacitive-based MEMS accelerometers provide accurate detection while measuring vibration in performance-driven applications. MEMS capacitive accelerometers have taken a massive leap forward in performance, and ADI’s portfolio leads the industry in power, noise, bandwidth, and temperature specifications. MEMS capacitive accelerometers offer high levels of integration and functionality, with features such as self-test, peak acceleration, and spectral alarms. FFTs and data storage are shock-tolerant up to 10000g, have a DC response, and are smaller and lighter than piezoelectric accelerometers.
