San Diego State University Improves MEMS Accelerometer Tunability

Greater tunability is necessary for new consumer and military products such as cell phones and gaming and GPS devices.

Researchers at San Diego State University have developed a new concept for improving MEMS accelerometer tunability. This method can increase wide-band tunability with ranges much larger than current practice, a significant improvement from the previously accepted 5-10%.

Greater tunability is necessary for new consumer and military products such as cell phones and gaming and GPS devices.

This new concept introduced by the University allows for better performance of accelerometers in current products and opens the door for innovative and emerging technologies that will require wide bandwidth resonant frequency tunability in MEMS accelerometers.

"Another benefit is that this new concept allows for an increase in the range of frequencies while reducing costs," said a professor at the University.

Research, innovation and application have always been key drivers for researchers at San Diego State University.

The University now seeks to license the technology to a private company in order to apply university research.
