Silicon Designs Announces MEMS Variable Capacitive OEM Accelerometer Chips with 48-Hour Shipment from Stock

21 May 2015

Silicon Designs, Inc., a leading designer and manufacturer of industrial grade MEMS variable capacitive accelerometer chips and modules for zero-to-medium frequency instrumentation applications, announced that quantities of its entire OEM accelerometer chip range are now available with 48-hour shipment from stock.

Based outside of Seattle, Washington, the 100% veteran owned Silicon Designs specializes in the design, development and manufacture of high-reliability MEMS variable capacitive chips and accelerometers. On-board voltage regulation and an internal reference minimize temperature and voltage changes while eliminating additional external power regulation requirements. Carefully regulated manufacturing processes ensure that each sensor is made to be virtually identical, allowing users to swap out parts in the same g range with few to no testing modifications, further saving time and resources.  This also provides test engineers with a quick plug-and-play solution for almost any application, with total trust in sensor accuracy when used within published specifications.

As the OEM of its own MEMS VC accelerometer chips and modules, Silicon Designs is able to ensure quality, offer custom design, and still keep prices highly competitive. Standard MEMS variable capacitive accelerometers are available in ranges from 2 g up to >20,000 g. Within the standard range (2 to 400 g), most Silicon Designs MEMS accelerometers can continue to operate after sustained exposures of up to 10,000 g and limited exposure to temperatures above +200°C. All Silicon Designs products are 100% made in the USA at the company's Kirkland, Washington corporate headquarters. They are further supported by an extensive global sales and distribution network.

Silicon Designs sensing technologies support a wide range of equipment and applications, including inertial measurements for UAVs, crash event detection, missile launches, downhole vibration, automotive testing, motorsport, shipping container monitoring, airplane flutter testing, turbine engine precession, and the structural integrity monitoring of bridges, hydroelectric power generators, and wind farm turbines.
