Analog unveils 1st MEMS accelerometer with Min/Max offset sensitivity over full temp range
Analog Devices (ADI) has introduced ADXL350 MEMS accelerometer with Min/Max offset sensitivity over the full temperature range. Analog claims this device as the industry’s first to achieve this performance. The ADXL350 3-axis MEMS accelerometer has maximum offset temperature sensitivity of ±0.31 mg/°C on the X/Y axes and ±0.49 mg/°C on the Z axis, guaranteeing predictable and quantifiable performance across the full temperature range of -40 Deg C to +85 Deg C.
MEMS accelerometers on the market today specify only typical offset sensitivity to temperature, requiring calibration over temperature to maintain accurate sensor readings. The ADXL350 Min/Max offset sensitivity to temperature specifications guarantee known, quantifiable offset sensor measurements even in applications that are subjected to a wide temperature range. Additionally, the ADXL350 provides low noise density helping designers to attain valid measurements from applications with a low noise floor.
The ADXL350 provides on-board analog to digital conversion with 13-bit resolution, as low as 2 mg/LSB, and is configurable to ±1g/2g/4g/8g range settings. The device is suitable for applications in industrial and defense industries such as gas/water meters, environmental monitors and military communications radios.
