Silicon Designs (Issaquah, Washington) has announced its new model 2445
series, a family of single-ended low-noise analog MEMS capacitive
accelerometer modules, designed to support a variety of low-to-medium
frequency triaxial measurement requirements. The rugged design of the model
2445 features three orthogonally mounted low-noise MEMS capacitive sensing
elements, packaged in a nitrogen-damped, epoxy sealed lightweight aluminum
housing, finished with a ±5V single ended output. The outputs are referenced
to external ground. Units are available with individual standard measurement
ranges from ±2g to ±400g, with all designed for reliable operation over a
temperature range of -55°C to +125°C.
