Silicon Designs, Inc. (United States)
Silicon Designs, Inc., located just outside Seattle, Washington, was founded in 1983 with the idea of improving the accepted design standard for accelerometers. At that time, the industrial-grade accelerometers on the market were bulky, delicate, and outrageously expensive. With that in mind, the engineers at SDI set out to develop a compact, sensitive, rugged, and -most importantly- reasonably priced accelerometer that would do a better job. Since then, SDI has expanded the capabilities of their accelerometers, introduced a digital line, designed a new breed of tri-axial module, and created numerous custom designs for companies all over the world.
