The Model A2260 high-precision MEMS capacitive accelerometer from Silicon Designs Inc., Issaquah, WA, is designed for automotive R&D, crash test, and vehicle dynamics testing requirements for NVH, drivetrain, and powertrain testing, vehicle suspension and handling, crash event detection, and airbag performance assessments. Tailored for zero-to-medium frequency applications, the accelerometer module offers standard ranges from 2–400 g, integral amplification, high-drive low-impedance buffering, onboard voltage regulation, an internal voltage reference, self-calibration, 2 analog voltage outputs, and a 4-wire connection supporting single-ended and differential modes. Signal outputs are fully differential about a 2.5 V common-mode voltage; sensitivity is independent from the 8–32 V supply voltage. Each sensor is virtually identical.

An accelerometer measures the rate of change of an object’s velocity to monitor its movement.

From cell phones to industrial manufacturing, knowing when an object (or a person!) is nearby is a basic sensing requirement.
