Si-Ware Systems Introduces New Platform for MEMS Inertial Sensor Development

Si-Ware Systems, a company specializing in MEMS and IC-based solutions, has introduced an inertial sensor development platform called the SWS61111 that enables easy and rapid interfacing of most of the capacitive MEMS devices to superior performance electronics.

With the SWS61111, sensor developers can now assess their inertial sensors, including accelerometer and gyroscope, to know the behavior and performance of their products with total interface electronics. This sensor platform uses SWS1110, Si-Ware Systems’ inertial sensor interface ASIC. Several gyroscopes and accelerometers have been interfaced with the SWS1110 for demonstrating superior performance when compared to competitive MEMS sensor modules. The SWS1110 has high voltage capabilities and can perform highly configurable open- and closed-loop, ultra-low noise front-end operation. These features make this configurable ASIC as an ideal MEMS interface for advanced inertial sensing devices.

The SWS61111 provides key information to ASIC and MEMS designers by comprehensively and rapidly assessing problems, including temperature behavior, high-volt effects, mechanical and electrical coupling, and parasitic modes of oscillation. This improves market-reach time and optimizes MEMS and electronics. The SWS61111 also assesses the SWS1110 for products used in advanced segment. It is the first sensor platform made available by Si-Ware Systems to sensor developers.

The SWS61111 comprises a USB interface, an ASIC daughter board having a sensor placeholder, a programming board, and related PC software. The platform has options to mount a sensor on the daughter board. The user-friendly software interface helps in communicating with the MEMS sensors and configuring ASIC parameters to best match a particular sensor.
