High-Accuracy Industrial-Grade
MEMS
Capacitive Accelerometers

Silicon Designs, located just outside Seattle, Washington, specializes in the design and manufacture of highly accurate and rugged industrial-grade capacitive MEMS accelerometers with integrated amplification. Sensors are offered in eight standard ranges of 2 g to 400 g with a wide range of full-scale sensitivities.

What's New at SDI?


In addition, as the OEM of our own MEMS accelerometer chips and modules, Silicon Designs is able to ensure quality, custom design capabilities and highly competitive pricing. Silicon Designs can provide higher g accelerometers up to 20,000 g on request. Silicon Designs can also provide specialized devices that continue to operate after sustained exposures of up to 10,000 g shock and with limited exposure to temperatures above +200C.
