Model 675 High Performance Arbitrary Waveform Generator

San Rafael, CA – October 15, 2021 – Berkeley Nucleonics' technical staff has published a whitepaper entitled, "Ultrasonic MEMS Testing with the Model 675 High Performance AWG." This application note describes how to use the Model 675 High Performance Arbitrary Waveform Generator to generate the signals for the test and design of Ultrasonic MEMS sensors.

MEMS Sensor

The Model 675 High Performance AWG simplifies the generation of pulse and chirp signals typically used to perform design tests and characterize MEMS sensors. Considering the amplitude of 24 Vpp into High-Impedance (12 Vpp into 50 Ohm) joined to an analog shift of ±12 V into High-Impedance, the Model 675 represents the ideal solution for these kinds of tests where high voltage amplitude, programmable pulse's width, and rise/fall time are mandatory.

  • Accelerate testing, reliability, characterization, and failure analysis of ultrasonic MEMS sensors.
  • Reduces the time to generate complex train pulse scenarios.

General Considerations About MEMS Sensors MEMS (Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems) sensors leverage silicon’s unique mechanical properties to integrate mechanical structures able to sense acceleration, rotation, angular rate, vibration, displacement, heading, and other physical and environmental properties. Those considerations, united to an analog front end with an excellent harmonic distortion, produce a circuit that combines electrical circuits and 3-dimensional mechanical structures.

Nowadays, MEMS sensors and microphones are widely used in many applications starting from distance and motion detection, mobiles, IoT, drones, automotive, pressure measurements, and humidity and temperature sensing, to name a few.

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
