MEMS vs. FOG: A Comparative Analysis
Follow OS&T

Silicon Sensing knows that the need to choose between Si MEMS (Silicon Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems) and Fiber Optic Gyroscopes (FOG) is becoming more common. Read more >>

In selecting gyroscopes for a range of applications, both technologies have their strengths, with FOG technology maturing to the point where it has replaced mechanical gyroscopes and set the benchmark for many emerging technologies.

On the other hand, MEMS inertial sensors are proliferated in low-end, consumer applications, and many people still view MEMS as an immature technology for high-end, high-integrity inertial applications.

This being said, the reality is very different. MEMS inertial sensors have been able to offer incredible performance in high-integrity applications for over a decade, in some cases becoming a viable alternative to FOG.

In the full article, Silicon Sensing outlines the pros and cons of MEMS and FOG technology, providing a careful and comprehensive comparison between the two. This includes their use in a variety of applications, their CSWaP, performance, and more.
