Kirkland, Washington, USA – Silicon Designs, Inc.(www.silicondesigns.com)(SDI), a U.S. based and veteran-owned designer and manufacturer of highly rugged industrial- and inertial-grade MEMS capacitive accelerometer chips, modules, and supporting data acquisition, today announced the immediate appointment of Kvalitest Industrial Oy and Kvalitest Industrial AB (www.kvalitest.com) as its exclusive authorized global technical sales representatives in Finland and Sweden, respectively.
Kvalitest is a value-added technical distributor, providing high-performance test & measurement products and solutions to the research, production, and maintenance sectors of the Nordic region. With local offices in both Finland and Sweden, Kvalitest employs a total of nine experienced, fully dedicated, and full-time test & measurement professionals, all of whom collectively offer a combined 100 years of industry experience in the technical sales, marketing, and applications engineering support of sensors and instrumentation, including MEMS capacitive accelerometers, chips and related data acquisition.
For over 35 years, the Kirkland, Washington, USA-based Silicon Designs has designed and manufactured its industrial- and inertial-grade MEMS capacitive accelerometer modules and chips for a variety of zero-to-medium frequency instrumentation requirements.
The company was founded in 1983, initially, thanks in large part to a United States Small Business Innovation Research grant award (SBIR). This initial SBIR award gave SDI an opportunity to support the now-retired Star Wars program with the development of a new radiation-hardened accelerometer. It would become the first in what has been a total of 25 SBIR Phase I and Phase II grant award wins in related technology areas since that time.
Today, Silicon Designs supplies both custom and COTS MEMS capacitive accelerometer modules and chips to thousands of industrial customers, as well as to numerous government defense programs and research facilities all over the world. All of the company’s products are 100% designed, manufactured, assembled, and tested in the USA at its state-of-the-art global corporate headquarters and R&D center. SDI’s quality management systems are further certified to ISO9001:2015.
Typical applications for SDI products include, though are not limited to, aerospace & defense, automotive, energy, industrial, new product R&D, robotics, spacecraft and satellite, UAVs, and test & measurement.
