Based outside of Seattle in Kirkland, Washington, USA, Silicon Designs was founded in 1983 with the goal of improving the accepted design standard for MEMS capacitive accelerometers. At that time, industrial-grade accelerometers available on the market were bulky, highly fragile and costly. The engineering team at Silicon Designs listened to the needs of customers who required more compact, sensitive, rugged and reasonably priced MEMS capacitive modules and chips, yet which also offered higher performance for a lower overall per channel measurement cost. With the customer’s expressed feedback in mind, resultant product lines were designed and built to surpass expectations. The company has since grown steadily over the years, though its core competency remains accelerometers, with the philosophy of “Make it better, stronger, smaller and less expensive” maintained to this day.
