Inertial Sensor

Safran Colibrys is a world-leading supplier of standard and customized MEMS accelerometers for harsh environments and safety critical applications. Safran Colibrys Inertial line of high-performance accelerometers is the best MEMS choice with regards to long-term bias and scale factor repeatability under temperature and vibration. Guarantee of supply is a key consideration for inertial applications in aerospace, defense, naval and railway sectors due to the high cost and time required for component re-qualification programs. With approximately one million MEMS sensors delivered over the last 15 years in mission-critical applications, Colibrys is a proven partner for long-term supply.

MS1000

Tactical Grade MEMS Accelerometer

Specially designed for Advanced Inertial applications of tactical grade, MS1000 implements an innovative Micro-Electro Mechanical design and electronics for unbeatably accurate measurements in terms of long term bias and scale factor repeatability, in-run bias stability, and vibration rectification error (VRE).

Recommended Circuit for VS1000

In order to obtain the best device performance, particular attention must be paid to the proximity analog electronics. A proposed circuit that includes a reference voltage, the sensor decoupling capacitors and output buffers is described in the figure below. Optimal acceleration measurements are obtained using the differential output (OUTPs-OUTNs). If a single-ended acceleration signal is…
