Mini MEMS Accelerometer Boasts Excellent Linearity

Developed by Tronics Microsystems, the AXO215 closed-loop accelerometer specifies a non-linearity s less than 0.05%. A hermetic J-lead package  measuring 12 mm x 12 mm ensures reliable performance levels in harsh environments, while decoupling the mechanical stresses from the host system. Providing an in-plane linear acceleration measurement, the AXO215 has an input range of 15g with a noise figure of 15 µg/√Hz. The 24-bit digital output is delivered with a bias instability of  3 µg and an operating vibration resistance of 7.3 grms. The MEMS accelerometer is also available in an evaluation version, designed to provide users and developers with improved testing functionalities. Fully compatible with the Arduino M0 open-source electronic prototyping platform, the plug-and-play kit features a compact design and integrates proprietary evaluation software to support design engineers with various functionalities, such as output reading and recording, recalibration and digital self-tests. The new accelerometer will be shown at the Sensors Expo & Conference 2017 in San Jose, California, from June 27 to 29, 2017 (booth 416).
