Test Rig for MEMS-gyros

Conference/Workshop Paper




In a motion sensing application it is desirable to choose the most optimal sensor for the specific application. The question is what motion sensor is the “best” sensor? There is no simple answer, it depends on the application and what demands the construction shall meet. Therefore the question is to find out what parameters that are important in a specific application. It can be the size, price, lifetime or some performance parameters, like high sensitivity, wide sensing range, temperature tolerance, heating, high shock robustness, power consumption or any other parameter. To help the engineer to select the most optimal MEMS-gyroscope (gyro) a test rig has been developed and used.
