Analog Mems Accelerometer Suits Engine Anti-vibration And Electrically Controlled Suspension Applications

Analog MEMS accelerometer suits engine anti-vibration and electrically controlled suspension applicationsMurata today announced the SCA720 series of analog MEMS accelerometers aimed specifically at electrically controlled suspension and engine anti-vibration applications. Measuring only 7.0 x 8.6 z 3.3 mm and constructed from a single crystal silicon, the sensor is mechanically robust and has no deformation up to 70 000g. The accelerometer’s 3D structure employs capacitive sensing techniques that give it extremely sensitive measurement characteristics and excellent offset stability.
