Speaker: Dr. Said Emre Alper, Mikrosistemler Co. Ltd.

Topic: "High Performance MEMS Gyroscopes and MEMS Accelerometers"

Location: Middle East Technical University, Ankara, Turkey

Abstract: Inertial sensors are the core integrated components that measure the position and orientation of any moving platform, currently ranging from cell phones to aircrafts.  The cost and size advantages provided by microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) technologies enabled some newborn inertial sensing applications especially for consumer and industrial fields. Starting from 1990s, MEMS inertial sensors emerged into several commercial markets such as automotive engineering, household appliances, as well as robotics.  Ongoing research in combination with the progress in MEMS fabrication technologies now yields even higher performance MEMS inertial sensors.  Today, it is possible to realize MEMS accelerometers with several g bias stability and MEMS gyroscopes with bias stabilities approaching to and even lower than 1deg/hr.  This talk will present an overview of MEMS inertial sensors as well as the current activities running at Mikrosistemler, the only MEMS company in Turkey that can design and produce its own gyroscopes and accelerometers.
