A high-resolution, high dynamic range capacitive accelerometer based on pull-in time measurement is described in this paper. The high sensitivity of pull-in time can be used to implement high performance accelerometers, but non-linearity and low dynamic range compromise device performance. A closed-loop approach using an electrostatic actuation...

This work reports the design, modelling, fabrication and preliminary functionality testing of a dual-mass MEMS vibratory gyroscope for application in medical instrumentation, among others. The two-framed gyro has drive and sense mode resonance frequencies of 2500Hz and 2830Hz, with its bandwidth tunable between 40-330Hz. Adopted design and...

The experimental evaluation of damping-improved parallel-plate geometries is reported in this paper. An improved damper geometry with air channels was developed to address contradictory design constraints: large sensing parallel-plate area is desirable for a significant readout capacitance as well as reduced damping coefficient. Damping...
