If an accelerometer or gyro is subjected to an acceleration or rotation outside its measuring range, is there any delay before the unit is back in normal operation when the acceleration or rotation is over?
I am sorry that this communication was interrupted. I just realized this gap, while reviewing all of the open discussions on the forum. Venkat left ADI. In general, we do not test products to these levels,but in the future, while monitoring the outputs for recovery time. If you have a more specific example and product reference in the future, we can check with our design or characterization team to see what might be possible. I hope that you are well!
It depends on the product and also on the magnitude of the out-of-range signal (2x full-scale or 100x full-scale??). Our accelerometers have over-range detection capability and typically return to normal operation in ~100's of microseconds after the stimulus is removed. Our gyros are capable of handling ~50x full-scale but the output will electrically saturate.
In my application it will be up to 50x full-scale for accelerometers...
