The author describes an electronic accelerometer based on capacitive measurement. It is based on the simple parallel-plate capacitor: one plate is fixed, while the other moves relative to it under acceleration, which causes the capacitance to change. One example of this approach is the Analog Devices ADXL-50, manufactured by surface micromachining. The ADXL 50 consists of a variable differential a... View full abstract»
There are many ways in which the control software for an instrument could be realised. The approach described was developed over a number of years by the Microwave Measurements Group at Marconi Instruments, and used in its most recent product, the 6200 series Microwave Test Set (MTS). The MTS is a new type of instrument, combining the functionality of a four-input scalar network analyser, a synthe... View full abstract»
