Abstract— The new high-performance digital inertial MEMS platform is ensuring a maximum commonality (process, electronics, packaging) between the accelerometers and the gyros to reduce the development effort and the bill of materials. The platform is the industry’s first portfolio of cost-effective, low-SWaP, high-performance, closed-loop, SMD, digital MEMS accelerometers and gyros for dynamic applications. The sensors exhibit outstanding measurement capabilities in harsh environments and are a cost-effective alternative to analog quartz accelerometers and FOG for tactical and short-term navigation applications. This paper presents an overview of the platform including information on its architecture and performances.
Keywords—MEMS, accelerometer, gyro, inertial, closed-loop.
