Analog Devices Inc. has introduced what the company claims is the
industry’s first MEMS accelerometer with min/max offset sensitivity over
the full temperature range.
The ADXL350 3-axis MEMS accelerometer has maximum offset
temperature sensitivity of ±0.31 mg/°C on the X/Y axes and ±0.49 mg/°C
on the Z axis, guaranteeing predictable and quantifiable performance
across the full temperature range of -40 to +85°C. MEMS accelerometers
on the market today specify only typical offset sensitivity to
temperature, requiring calibration over temperature to maintain accurate
sensor readings. The ADXL350 Min/Max offset sensitivity to temperature
specifications guarantee known, quantifiable offset sensor measurements
even in applications that are subjected to a wide temperature range.
Additionally, the ADXL350 offers low noise density enabling designers to
obtain valid measurements from applications with a low noise floor.
The ADXL350 offers on-board analog to digital conversion with 13-bit
resolution, as low as 2 mg/LSB, and is configurable to ±1g/2g/4g/8g
range settings. The ADXL350 is available in a small footprint 3-mm x
4-mm x 1.2-mm, 16-lead, plastic-cavity laminate package. The ADXL350 is
well suited for high-performance applications in industrial and defense
industries such as gas/water meters, environmental monitors and military
The ADXL350 MEMS Accelerometer offers a min/max offset sensitivity to
temperature of ±0.31 mg/°C X/Y axes and ±0.49 mg/°C Z axis guarantees
predictable and quantifiable performance across full temperature range.
The device has a 2 mg/LSB resolution with a 13-bit on-chip A/D
converter enables measurement of inclination changes less than 1.0°.
The ADXL350’s low power modes enable intelligent motion-based power
management with threshold sensing and active acceleration measurement at
low power dissipation
Availability and Pricing
The ADXL350 MEMS Accelerometer in a 3-mm x 4-mm x 1.2-mm 16-lead plastic
cavity laminate package is available now and is priced at $4.57 each
