New single axis BAW MEMS gyros with superior shock and vibration immunity target industrial applications

Qualtré, Inc introduced the QGYR110Hx BAW MEMS gyroscopes, single-axis angular rate (rotational) sensors designed for harsh environments. Based on Qualtré's patented Bulk Acoustic Wave (BAW) MEMS technology, the new gyros are manufactured using a highly versatile and scalable High Aspect-Ratio Poly and Single-¬crystalline Silicon (HARPSS™) fabrication process, which allows an unprecedented combination of robustness, performance, and size advantages over conventional MEMS tuning-fork gyroscopes. QGYR110Hx samples, with analog or digital output, are now available in a small LGA32 package and are RoHS and green compliant.
