Silicon Designs Announces Global Market Launch of Low-Cost USB-Powered Data Acquisition System with FFT Analysis and Display



Silicon Designs, Inc., (SDI) a global industry leader in the design and manufacture of highly rugged industrial-grade MEMS capacitive accelerometer chips and modules, today announced the global market launch of its Model 3330 G-Logger, a low-cost, USB-powered portable data acquisition system with the same powerful FFT analysis and display capabilities typically found in much more expensive systems.

The three-channel Model 3330 is designed to optimize the low-noise performance characteristics of all Silicon Designs single and triaxial MEMS variable capacitance accelerometer modules with analog output and 8-32 VDC excitation. The G-Logger offers 16-bit data acquisition, with data rates of 1 to 10k samples per second and per axis, through each of its available input channels. The G-Logger’s simple and intuitive user interface is built on an NI LabVIEW® platform for ease of customer use. Model 3330 also features real-time data acquisition and readout capabilities with live streaming; real-time pause, scroll back and rewind; SD-card recording of up to 32 GB, multi-speed recording playback; and remote operation via TCP. Average system setup time is less than five minutes

Optional offset settings allow for a staggered display without overlap. An additional independent scale G/Div is available per channel, with settings that can shrink or expand channel input for better visibility. Data output is displayed over a time range from 100 ms to two minutes. The Model 3330 data page allows for simple G readings, with as-needed real-time ability to hide or show any or all of the three measurement channels. Users may view accelerometer performance data from any remote network location.

Each G-Logger is shipped preconfigured with all necessary Silicon Designs accelerometer specifications, along with accompanying software. As a USB-powered device, additional accelerometer power is not required. Units occupy a highly compact footprint, measuring just 120 mm x 103 mm x 30 mm. Software is fully compatible with Windows XP, Vista, 7, & 8 PCs, laptops, and notebooks.

About Silicon Designs, Inc:
Founded in 1983 and located outside of Seattle, WA, the privately held Silicon Designs specializes in the design, development and manufacture of highly rugged industrial grade capacitive accelerometers with integrated amplification. As the OEM of its own MEMS-based accelerometer chips and modules, Silicon Designs is able to ensure quality, offer custom design and still keep prices highly competitive. Carefully regulated manufacturing processes ensure that each sensor is consistently made to be virtually identical, allowing users to swap out modules with little or no testing modifications, saving both time and resources.  This also allows test engineers to provide a quick plug-and-play solution for most any application with total trust in the accuracy of sensors used within published specifications.

The company also continues to expand its sales representation network, particularly within the oil and gas market. For more information on Silicon Designs products and partnership opportunities, visit  www.silicondesigns.com.
