Only a couple of decades ago we saw the first use of micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS) technology in the fabrication of inertial sensors, and particularly accelerometers. Yet MEMS accelerometers have now conquered diverse markets including inertial sensing, industry and even health care. The reason for this success is low price, small size, high reliability, and low power consumption of MEMS-based sensors. Recently, MEMS accelerometers started competing with traditional electro-mechanical accelerometers in applications that require tactical grade performance.
Physical Logic provides advanced tactical-grade open-loop accelerometers, with linearity and stability that can compete with that of mechanical accelerometers in quite a few applications. Our technology is superior to other providers in terms of bias and scale factor stability, noise, and linearity.
Physical Logic MEMS Technology
Physical Logic is developing and manufacturing open loop and closed loop MEMS accelerometer. Our open-loop MEMS accelerometers for tactical navigation applications are based on fully differential capacitive sensing architecture, enabling noise and parasitic rejection. Our technology applies to a broad range of mechanical, chemical, optical, and biotech products such as sensors, microstructures, and actuators.
