Abstract : Various tests were performed to determine the capabilities and limits of piezoresistive accelerometers. Macroscopic, static, and dynamic tests were conducted on all accelerometers before and after the environmental tests (electrical, humidity, and temperature). The accelerometers were overranged to check their overrange performance characteristics.
