Virtus and ACUTRONIC collaborate on MEMS testing tools

Virtus Advanced Sensors ( and ACUTRONIC USA ( said they are working together to develop advanced tools for the testing of 5- and 6-axis Micro Electro-Mechanical Systems (MEMS) inertial sensors based on VIRTUS' proprietary sensor technology.

The firms said that an affordable high-speed 5- and 6-degree-of-freedom test capability is not currently available commercially and that the development of such a system would spark the growth of new high performance, low-cost MEMS-based products, including automotive stability controls.
