Miniaturized MEMS accelerometer
TDK Corporation’s Tronics AXO215 microelectromechanical system (MEMS) is designed to provide acceleration sensing performance for demanding applications such as precision instrumentation, unmanned vehicles and avionics. The AXO215’s closed-loop configuration provides non-linearity that is less than 0.05%. Additionally, the hermetic J-lead package (12 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 15 g with ultra-low noise of 15 µg/√Hz. The 24-bit digital output is delivered with a bias instability of just 3 µg and an operating vibration resistance of 7.3 grms. The AXO215 is also available in an evaluation version that is specifically designed to provide users and developers with testing functionalities. It is compatible with the Arduino M0 open-source electronic prototyping platform and 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.
