High-Accuracy Commercial and Inertial Grade
MEMS Capacitive Accelerometer Chips and Modules

Since 1983, Silicon Designs has served as global industry experts in the design, development, and manufacture of commercial and inertial-grade MEMS capacitive accelerometer modules and chips with integral amplification. Our accelerometers feature highly rugged designs for zero-to-medium frequency instrumentation requirements, with full-scale sensitivities from ±2 g to ±1000 g. Within standard ranges (±2 g to ±400 g), most Silicon Designs MEMS capacitive accelerometers continue to perform within published specifications after exposures to 5000 g and in limited temperature exposures to +175°C.

As the OEM of our own MEMS capacitive accelerometers and chips, Silicon Designs is able to provide exclusive benefits to our customers which are otherwise absent from the industry. All products are 100% built in-house at our state-of-the-art worldwide corporate headquarters and R&D center, located just outside of Seattle, Washington, resulting in superb quality and the industry's fastest lead times, plus added capabilities for qualification, custom specifications, and private-label solutions.

Our quality management system is also ISO 9001:2015 certified, reaffirming our unwavering commitment to quality in the design and manufacture of MEMS capacitive accelerometer chips and modules for defense, aviation, space, automotive, transportation, energy, environmental and industrial applications. We also use military standards for production, guaranteeing a level of quality that is seldom found in similar accelerometers. Silicon Designs is also a 100% veteran-owned small business.


The miniature MEMS capacitive accelerometer technologies of Silicon Designs have received critical industry acclaim for their innovation and versatility, as evidenced by our numerous SBIR grant awards, prestigious Tibbetts Award recognition, and induction into the Space Technology Hall of Fame. We look forward to supporting your measurement requirements.
