Low-Cost, High-Performance Piezoelectric
Accelerometer packaged as Surface Mount
Endevco® Model 12M1A PICOCHIP® is a
low-cost, high-output piezoelectric accelerometer
offered as a surface mount chip component.
Weighing only 85 mg, this tiny (4.6 x 3.8 x 1.4mm) accelerometer
is engineered for integration into standard hybrid or SMT
electronics packages along with custom-designed signal
conditioning circuits. It provides OEMs with the ability to create
miniaturized shock and vibration measurement systems in one
completely integrated unit.
The Model 12M1A's PIEZITE® Type P-8 bimorph sensing element,
operating in the bender mode, provides low base strain sensitivity,
low pyroelectric output, and extremely high charge output versus size.
Contact to the sensing element is made through two thick-film gold
metalised mounting pads on the bottom surface of the aluminium
The accelerometer is designed to be mounted with conductive
adhesives or soldered in place. The 12M1A is a self generating
accelerometer, making it ideal for applications where minimum
electrical power consumption is essential.
