The MXA2500U measures acceleration with a full-scale range 1 g and a sensitivity at 25C. (The MEMSIC accelerometer product line extends from 10 g with custom versions available above 10 g.) It can measure both dynamic acceleration (e.g., vibration) and static acceleration (e.g., gravity). The MXA2500U design is based on heat convection and requires no solid proof mass. This eliminates stiction and particle problems associated with competitive devices and provides shock survival 50,000 g, leading to significantly lower failure rates and lower loss due to handling during assembly.

The MXA2500U provides an absolute analog output The typical noise floor is 0.2 mg/ Hz allowing signals below 1 milli-g to be resolved 1 Hz bandwidth. The 3dB rolloff of the device occurs 25 Hz but is expandable >160 Hz (ref. Application Note AN-00MX-003). The MXA2500U is available in a low profile LCC surface mount package x 2 mm). It is hermetically sealed and is operational over to +105C temperature range. It also contains an on-chip temperature sensor and a bandgap voltage reference. Due to the standard CMOS structure of the MXA2500U, additional circuitry can easily be incorporated into custom versions for high volume applications. Contact the factory for more information.

Guaranteed by measurement of initial offset and sensitivity. Alignment error is specified as the angle between the true and indicated axis of sensitivity. 3 Transverse sensitivity is the algebraic sum of the alignment and the inherent sensitivity errors. 4 The sensitivity change over temperature for thermal accelerometers is based on variations in heat transfer that are governed by the laws of physics and it is highly consistent from device to device. Please refer to the section in this data sheet titled "Compensation for the Change of Sensitivity over Temperature" for more information. 5 External circuitry is required to extend the 3dB bandwidth. (ref. Application Note: AN-00MX-003).

6 The device operates over to 5.25V supply range. Please note that sensitivity and zero g bias level will be slightly different at 2.7V operation. For devices to be operated 2.7V/3.0V in production, they can be trimmed at the factory specifically for this lower supply voltage operation, in which case the sensitivity and zero g bias level specifications on this page will be met. Please contact the factory for specially trimmed devices for low supply voltage operation. 7 Note that the accelerometer has a constant heater power control circuit thereby requiring higher supply current at lower operating voltage.
