Hitachi Metals Develops Worlds Smallest Digital Output Triaxial Accelerating Sensor


Tokyo - Hitachi Metals announced on August 23 that it has produced the smallest digital output triaxial accelerating sensor of its kind in the world.

The H30CD sensor measures 2.9 x 2.9 x 0.92 mm, compared with the conventional 3.4 x 3.7 x 0.92mm triaxial accelerating sensor, with a reduced electrical voltage of 3V at 0.35mA.

Hitachi has incorporated its own micro-electromechanical system, (MEMS) technology enabling the sensor to automatically adjust to the variation in the temperature.

The company believe the sensor will be used for various applications including mobile phones, AV, medical, and sports equipments, and ATM.
