 MEMSIC Inc., (http://www.memsic.com) announced a new family of acceleration and tip-over sensor components that includes four new sensors, the MXD6240 and 41AU, MXC6244AU, MXC6245XU. The new sensors provide tip-over and acceleration sensing in a wide range of automotive and other applications.

“For years, high vibration environments have caused problems for accelerometers, forcing customers to widen the full scale range of the accelerometer to prevent clipping and move to a more powerful and expensive microprocessor capable of higher sampling rates and heavy filtering needed prevent aliasing and recover the signal of interest,” said James Fennelly, MEMSIC Product Marketing Manager. “The 624x family gives customers a new cost effective choice that works well in these high-vibration environments, and is the only accelerometer with these unique vibration-filtering properties.”
