When size, performance and robustness matter!
High precision MEMS sensors since 1965


Problem solved!
For years, the fundamental issue of maintaining lifetime vacuum in the reference chamber of a micro sensor reminded a huge challenge. In the mid-nineties, Sensonor introduced an anodic wafer bonding technology with electrical crossings buried under an epitaxial layer. This solution secures both the hermetic reference chamber and as well provides a stable inert environment for the sensing system being piezo resistors or capacitive electrodes.
  Less than 0.1ppm failure rate for several 100 million sensors tells the rest of the story. These unique solutions are now made available for general applications in the ranges 0.5 to 20 bars.

Small and robust
A range of small and robust precision gyros based on the balanced ButterflyGyroTM design is offered. The ButterflyGyroTM design guarantees unbeaten performance for demanding applications and for vibration exposed applications in particular.

Pioneering MEMS gyros
 From pioneering Silicon Gyros for automotive use, we have further developed high precision MEMS based alternatives to traditional gyro technology.

Wide range of performance
The performance spans from the SAR series gyro sensors, closing the gap between low grade FOG's and traditional MEMS gyros, to the STIM series gyro modules, representing a superior choice to FOG's in respect to robustness, reliability, size/weight, power and cost.

Enabling solutions
Sensonor makes a difference in the industrial sensor and transducer community by focusing on products based on MEMS technology for High Precision applications.
Our devotion is to serve customers with enabling solutions when the combination of size, performance and robustness matter. We offer products that can replace existing non efficient technology.

Outstanding reliability
Sensonor has for more than 25 years played a significant role in the global MEMS industry. Over the years, more than 250 million pressure sensors, more than 250 million accelerometers, and more than 2 million gyros have been shipped to customers for use in numerous type of applications. Less than 0.1ppm field failures are the ultimate proof of long term dedication and capability.

NEW tactical grade IMU!

STIM300 Inertial Measurement Unit


STIM300 is a non-GPS aided Inertial Measurement Unit suitable for various commercial and defense guidance and navigation applications. The IMU is insensitive to magnetic fields and is a small, low weight solution - often used as an alternative to the larger and more costly fiber optic gyro based systems.


Established in Space by heritage!

Sensonor Gyro and IMU products have flown in space for almost 5 years. Customers have approved the COTS component for space usage by heritage. STIM210 and STIM300 are extremely attractive solutions because of the unique combination of size, weight, power consumption, reliability and cost. Sensonor Gyro and IMU modules continue to attract new satellite and constellation programs, especially LEO Satellites. A global customer base from the U.S., Europe, Russia and Asia are flying close to 100 units, including installations on the ISS. Learn more about STIM210 and STIM300.
