High-Accuracy Industrial-Grade MEMS Capacitive Accelerometers

- Nov 13, 2018-

Since 1983, the 100% veteran-owned Silicon Designs has served as leading industry experts in the design, development and manufacture of highly rugged, industrial- and inertial-grade MEMS capacitive accelerometers and chips with integral amplification. Accelerometers feature highly rugged designs for zero-to-medium frequency instrumentation requirements, with full-scale sensitivities from ±2 g to ±1000 g. Within standard ranges (±2 g to ±400 g), most Silicon Designs MEMS capacitive accelerometers continue to perform to specification after exposures to 5,000 g and in limited temperature exposures to +175°C.

As the OEM of our own MEMS capacitive accelerometers and chips, Silicon Designs is able to provide exclusive benefits to our customers which are otherwise absent from the industry. All products are built in-house, in the USA, resulting in superb quality and the industry's fastest lead times, plus added capabilities for qualification, custom specifications, and private-label solutions. We also use military standards for production, guaranteeing a level of quality seldom found in similar accelerometers.

Our quality management system is also ISO9001:2015 certified, reaffirming our unwavering commitment to quality in the design and manufacture of MEMS capacitive accelerometer chips and modules for defense, aviation, space, automotive, transportation, energy, environmental and industrial applications. 


The miniature MEMS capacitive accelerometer technologies of Silicon Designs have received critical industry acclaim for their innovation and versatility, as evidenced by our numerous SBIR grant awards, prestigious Tibbetts Award recognition, and induction into the Space Technology Hall of Fame. We look forward to supporting your measurement requirements.
