Research and Markets: Murata SCC2000 Series Sensors – Reverse Costing Analysis

December 16, 2015
By Business Wire News


Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the “Murata SCC2000 Series – Reverse Costing Analysis” report to their offering.

Murata SCC2000 series sensors are combined accelerometer and gyroscope devices aimed at use in tough environments such as those encountered in automotive and industrial applications. The SCC2000 series has best in class temperature dependency, shock sensitivity and bias stability characteristics and consists of a low-g 3-axis accelerometer with two angular rate sensor options of either X or Z-axis detection.

The SCC2000 series features independent acceleration and angular rate sensing elements manufactured with Murata proprietary High Aspect Ratio (HAR) 3D-MEMS process and using SOI and cavity-SOI (c-SOI) substrates. A single ASIC produced with an advanced BCD process is used.

The acceleration sensing element consists of four acceleration sensitive masses and the angular rate sensing element consists of moving masses that are purposely exited to in-plane drive motion.

The SCC2000 devices are packaged in a SOIC 24-pin premolded plastic housing measuring 15.0×8.5×4.1mm. The combo sensor is compliant to the ISO26262 automotive safety standard and the AEC-Q100 stress test qualification requirements for electronic components used in automotive applications.

SCC2000 series is targeted for applications demanding high stability with tough environmental requirements. Typical applications include: IMUs for highly demanding environments, platform stabilization and control, machine control systems, Electronic Stability Control (ESC), Hill Start Assist (HSA), roll over detection and Navigation systems.

The report includes the analysis of all combo sensors in the SCC2000 series: the SCC2230-E02, SCC2230-D08 and SCC2130-D08. Also a comparison with previous generation SCC1300 series is included.
