Analog Devices’ iMEMS Dual-Axis Accelerometer Delivers Guaranteed High Temperature Operation Up To +175° C

Analog Devices, Inc. (ADI) released for general availability today the ADXL206 high precision, low power, dual-axis iMEMS® accelerometer with signal conditioned analog voltage outputs. The single-chip ADXL206 measures acceleration with a full-scale range of ±5 g and measures both dynamic acceleration such as tilt and static acceleration such as gravity. Offering a guaranteed operating temperature range of -40° C to +175° C and excellent overall stability, the ADXL206 is well suited for geological down hole tools and other extreme high temperature industrial applications.

“Instead of using additional temperature compensation circuitry, innovative design techniques have been used to ensure that high performance is built in,” said Wayne Meyer, marketing and applications manager, MEMS/Sensors Technology Group, Analog Devices. “As a result, there is essentially no quantization error or non-monotonic behavior, and temperature hysteresis is very low, typically less than 2 mg over the entire −40° C to +175° C temperature range. This is another example of ADI's high performance MEMS inertial sensor leadership.”

“As designers put together smart drilling systems that go miles and miles under the earth’s surface, they are challenged to balance power and space requirements against the need for more information,” said Pam Aparo, segment marketing manager for Instrumentation, Analog Devices. “The ADXL206 iMEMS accelerometer is not only an extremely compact solution, but it also lowers power consumption by an order of magnitude from over 10 mA to under 0.5 mA per axis.”

The ADXL206 iMEMS accelerometer has a typical noise floor of 110 μg/√Hz, allowing signals below 1 mg (0.06° of inclination) to be resolved in tilt sensing applications using narrow bandwidths (<60 Hz). Bandwidths of 0.5 Hz to 2.5 kHz can be selected to suit the application. The ADXL206 is available in a 13 mm × 8 mm × 2 mm, 8-lead, SBDIP (side-brazed ceramic dual in-line package) package.

DevOps is speeding towards the IT world like a freight train and the hype around it is deafening. There is no reason to be afraid of this change as it is the natural reaction to the agile movement that revolutionized development just a few years ago. By definition, DevOps is the natural alignment of IT performance to business profitability. The relevance of this has yet to be quantified but it has been suggested that the route to the CEO’s chair will come from the IT leaders that successfully ma...
We are always online. We access our data, our finances, work, and various services on the Internet. But we live in a congested world of information in which the roads were built two decades ago. The quest for better, faster Internet routing has been around for a decade, but nobody solved this problem. We’ve seen band aid approaches like CDNs that attack a niche's slice of static content part of the Internet, but that’s it. It does not address the dynamic services-based Internet of today. It doe...
Ask someone to architect an Internet of Things (IoT) solution and you are guaranteed to see a reference to the cloud. This would lead you to believe that IoT requires the cloud to exist.

In the 21st century, security on the Internet has become one of the most important issues. We hear more and more about cyber-attacks on the websites of large corporations, banks and even small businesses. When online we’re concerned not only for our own safety but also our privacy. We have to know that hackers usually start their preparation by investigating the private information of admins – the habits, interests, visited websites and so on. On the other hand, our own security is in danger bec...
Enterprises have been using both Big Data and virtualization for years. Until recently, however, most enterprises have not combined the two. Big Data's demands for higher levels of performance, the ability to control quality-of-service (QoS), and the ability to adhere to SLAs have kept it on bare metal, apart from the modern data center cloud. With recent technology innovations, we've seen the advantages of bare metal erode to such a degree that the enhanced flexibility and reduced costs that cl...
Fact: storage performance problems have only gotten more complicated, as applications not only have become largely virtualized, but also have moved to cloud-based infrastructures. Storage performance in virtualized environments isn’t just about IOPS anymore. Instead, you need to guarantee performance for individual VMs, helping applications maintain performance as the number of VMs continues to go up in real time. In his session at Cloud Expo, Dhiraj Sehgal, Product and Marketing at Tintri, wil...
As software becomes more and more complex, we, as software developers, have been splitting up our code into smaller and smaller components. This is also true for the environment in which we run our code: going from bare metal, to VMs to the modern-day Cloud Native world of containers, schedulers and microservices. While we have figured out how to run containerized applications in the cloud using schedulers, we've yet to come up with a good solution to bridge the gap between getting your conta...
