The KXR94 series is designed to provide a high signal-to-noise ratio with integrated temperature compensation that provides excellent performance over temperature. These sensors can accept supply voltages between 2.5V and 5.25V. Sensitivity is factory programmable allowing customization for applications requiring from ±1.0g to ±4.0g ranges. Sensor bandwidth is user-definable. The sensor element functions on the principle of differential capacitance. Acceleration causes displacement of a silicon structure resulting in a change in capacitance. An ASIC, using a standard CMOS manufacturing process, detects and transforms changes in capacitance into an analog output voltage, which is proportional to acceleration. The sense element design utilizes common mode cancellation to decrease errors from process variation and environmental stress. Available in analog and multiplexed analog outputs and serial peripheral interface (SPI).
