Why MEMS Accelerometers Are Becoming the Designer’s Best Choice for CbM Applications
A small number of semiconductor manufacturers have overcome the noise, bandwidth and g-Range shortcomings commonly associated with MEMS sensors used in Condition-based Monitoring (CbM) by producing several medium and high-performance MEMS vibration sensors with the latter being comparable to piezo accelerometers.
