MEMSIC Unveils MFC2030 Bi-Directional Flow Sensor
Jul 22 15
MEMSIC Inc. has announced the availability of its MFC2030 bi-directional flow sensor for applications such as analytical instruments, anesthesia and other medical flow devices, process control, and natural gas measurement. MEMSIC Inc. utilizes its highly advanced and successful MEMS thermal accelerometer platform, of which it has shipped hundreds of millions of units into a variety of automotive and consumer applications, as the flow sensing element in this high performance flow sensor. The MFC2030 leverages this experience, technology and economy of scale to offer a high performance, reliable and cost effective flow sensor. MEMSIC was the first and only company to integrate a MEMS inertial sensor and signal processing circuitry together on a standard monolithic CMOS wafer. This same advanced MEMS technology and manufacturing process are leveraged into this advanced flow sensor solution. In addition to exceptionally low power consumption, a MEMS suspended-bridge microstructure enables a highly sensitive flow measurement. This is due to the low thermal mass and conductivity of the bridge structure, which results in gas flow becoming the primary means to transfer heat via convection from the heater to the thermopiles. This effective and rugged structure, when coupled with advanced CMOS circuitry and a 16-bit on-chip A/D, provides an exceptionally wide flow dynamic range, which is critical for a wide range of precision industrial, consumer and medical applications. The MFC2030 is highly configurable, with multiple mounting options including manifold mount, BSP and NPT fittings.
MEMSIC Announces the Launch of its Latest Addition, the INS380
Jun 11 15
MEMSIC announced the launch of its latest addition, the INS380, to its portfolio of Inertial Systems enabled with SmartSensing technology targeted to a broad range of precision motion sensing applications. The portfolio offering consists of Inertial Measurement Units (IMU), Vertical Gyros (VG), Attitude and Heading Reference Systems (AHRS), Inertial Navigation Systems (INS) and Tilt measurement systems in a variety of packages suited for system designers to end equipment manufacturers. The latest product from MEMSIC, the INS380SA, is a complete inertial navigation system with a built-in 48-channel GPS receiver. The SmartSensing technology enables a turnkey system with better than 0.01 m/s velocity measurement accuracy. The integrated 3-axis magnetometer allows for accurate operation when the GPS signal is lost or when the vehicle comes to a stop. SmartSensing technology provides users with unmatched sensor fusion and performance in critical motion sensing applications. SmartSensing combines enhanced and patented Kalman-based algorithm with proprietary temperature, motion and alignment calibration for consistent and high accuracy performance over a wide range of extreme operating conditions. Applications include unmanned ground and aerial vehicles, platform stabilization, avionics, precision agriculture, construction, and more. INS380SA-400 EVALKIT is available for evaluation and ships completer with an INS380 Unit along with necessary accessories for quick installation. Pricing: INS380SA-400 $2895 and INS380SA-400 EVALKIT $2995.
MEMSIC, Inc. Announces Availability of MXC400xXC
Aug 15 14
MEMSIC, Inc. announced the availability of its MXC400xXC, the world's first monolithic 3D accelerometer, and also the first 3D accelerometer to utilize WLP technology. The technology breakthrough in combining the 3D IC sensor with full WLP translates directly to a 60% reduction in cost and a 50% reduction in size, enabling a new generation of mobile consumer devices including phones, tablets, toys and wearable devices. The key to this breakthrough is MEMSIC's proprietary and patented thermal accelerometer technology, in which the MEMS sensor structure is etched directly into standard CMOS wafers, enabling the world's only CMOS monolithic solution. This technique uses thermal convection of heated gas molecules inside a sealed cavity to sense acceleration or inclination, and has been used for many years in MEMSIC's products for automotive stability control and rollover detection, digital cameras, projectors and many other applications. MEMSIC's designers have now taken the technology to a new level by combining 3D sensing with full WLP while keeping the same small size and low cost. The MXC400xXC offers a number of benefits to system designers of space- and cost-sensitive consumer devices. In addition to offering the world's lowest cost, the device provides 12-bit resolution on all three axes, programmable FSR of +/-2g/+/-4g/+/-8g, an 8-bit temperature output, plus orientation/shake detection. With a package size of 1.2 x 1.7 mm, board space is reduced by 50% over industry-standard 2x2 mm solutions. And like all MEMSIC thermal accelerometers, the MXC400xXC has no moving parts, making the sensor structure extremely robust to shock and vibration. This is critically important to wearable and many consumer applications.
