Sensors

InSensor®'s technology is a perfect solution for manufacturing integrated sensors for a variety of applications, including:

  • Strain gauges
  • Knock sensors
  • Pressure sensors
  • Hydrophones
  • Viscosity sensors
  • etc.
The final function of the device depends on the working principle, but it must be pointed out that the sensors can be based on the following generic structures:
  • Membrane
  • Cantilever
  • Bridge
  • Cross-bridge
  • etc.

MEMS Accelerometers

Due to its compatibility with MEMS it has already been applied in the fabrication of integrated uni- and tri-axial vibration sensors (accelerometers).

The tri-axial structure consists of a seismic mass suspended on four bridges/beams. The beams are equipped with active transdusing parts. The beams are deformed by the seismic mass due to acceleration and the output signal is generated. The actual direction of the acceleration is read from the four-beam response.

Working principle of the tri-axail accelerometer

The fabricated chip together with the detailed structure of tri-axial accelerometer is given below.
