Accelerometer Design: Frequency Response

  • Very low r values = good design

Accelerometer design phase lag

Accelerometer Design: Phase Lag


The amazing accelerometer

The Problem with Phase Lag

If not designed properly, phase lag causes the measured signal to deviate from the actual acceleration. (Above example would be for a BAD design.). Ideally, you want to design for zero phase distortion.
