Mouser adds Murata’s three-axis MEMS accelerometer and inclinometer

Able to provide self-diagnostic features and a user-selectable measurement range, the SCA330-D01 is a three-axis accelerometer and inclinometer from Murata, that is now available from Mouser Electronicis.

The SCA3300-D01 surface-mount micro electromechanical system (MEMS) sensor provides user-selectable measurement range and extensive self-diagnostics, says the distributor. It is a robust MEMS sensor, claimed to deliver groundbreaking bias stability, linearity, and low noise while also offering high reliability and performance under both mechanical vibration and shock endurance through a mechanically-damped sensing element.

Based on Murata’s capacitive 3D-MEMS technology, the high-performance accelerometer provides a ±1.5g to ±6g user-selectable measurement range, and features a 3.0 to 3.6V supply voltage with a low, 1mA, current consumption.

Murata’s SCA3300-D01 performs signal processing using a mixed-signal application specific integrated circuit (ASIC) with a flexible 32-bit, four-wire serial peripheral interface (SPI) digital interface. Both the ASIC and sensor element are packaged in a tough plastic housing that guarantees reliable operation over the device’s lifetime, reassures Mouser. The SCA3300-D01 is supported by the SCA3300 chip carrier printed circuit board (PCB), which includes the SCA3300-D01 with headers and passive components to enable fast prototyping.

The SCA3300-D01 is suitable for products used for professional leveling, platform angle measurement, inertial measurement units (IMUs) for heavy machinery and automotive designs, motion analysis and control, tilt compression and navigation systems. The device is suitable for surface mount device mounting and is compatible with RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances) and end of life vehicle (ELV) directives.
