Single axis MEMS capacitive accelerometer modules from Silicon Designs are low-cost, integrated, plug-and-play, precision measurement devices. They are available in five unique models, with each suitable for zero-to-medium frequency commercial and industrial applications, and particularly, where reliable performance, extremely low noise, and long-term stability are absolute requirements.


Each single axis module features a low-noise hermetic MEMS capacitive accelerometer housed within a rugged, epoxy sealed, anodized aluminum case. Onboard voltage regulation and an internal voltage reference eliminate the need for precision power supplies. The accelerometer modules are relatively insensitive to temperature changes and gradients. They are available in two unique standard temperature ranges and package styles for maximum value and performance.

1-Axis Plug-&-Play DC Accelerometer Modules

Universal Single Axis MEMS Capacitive Accelerometer Modules

Silicon Designs has created a family of five single axis MEMS capacitive accelerometer modules that are simple to use and virtually interchangeable, yet diverse enough to be suitable for most zero-to-medium frequency applications. All five models accept anything from +8 to +32V DC power, supply differential or single ended outputs, and use a simple four-wire cable. Models 2210, 2220, and 2260 feature integrated 3' cables, while the Models 2266 and 2276 feature sturdy connectors for versatile cable lengths and easy replacement.


A great number of MEMS capacitive accelerometer applications call for reliable performance over a moderate operating temperature range, yet still demand high-quality and reliability. So, rather than requiring customers to pay for features they don't need, Silicon Designs created the low-cost single axis Models 2210, 2260, and 2266, respectively, all of which can effectively support such applications without sacrificing performance reliability. 

As application demands increase, the high-performance Models 2220 and 2276 offer upgraded MEMS capacitive accelerometer chips for improved Bias Temperature and Scale Factor Temperature Coefficients. Additional testing ensures that customers receive only the best quality accelerometers. Initial calibration certificates are included with every part.

Silicon Designs Specialty 1-Axis MEMS Capacitive Accelerometer Modules

Sometimes special applications require a special touch. The Silicon Designs Models 2012 and 2240 are two families of specialty 1-axis MEMS capacitive accelerometer modules, expressly designed to meet more demanding or unique zero-to-medium frequency instrumentation requirements.


The Silicon Designs Model 2012 low-voltage accelerometer module is designed for applications where power availability may be limited, or otherwise requiring only +5V DC.  It's the ideal solution when power is scarce but demands are still high.


The Silicon Designs Model 2240 harsh environment accelerometer is considered our "heavy-duty bulldozer" module. Its rugged design incorporates the same high-temperature and high-performance components of the Model 2220, though sealed inside of a hermetic titanium case, for added protection against moisture, dust and other environmental contaminants.
