This paper presents a detailed SIMULINK model for a conventional capacitive Sigma-Delta accelerometer system consisting of a MEMS accelerometer, closed-loop readout electronics, and signal processing units (e. g. decimation filters). By using this model, it is possible to estimate the performance of the full system, including the effect of individual noise components, operation range, scale factor, etc. The model has been verified through test results using a lateral accelerometer, full-custom designed 2nd-order Sigma-Delta readout electronics, and a signal processing unit implemented on PIC. The implemented system operates at 500 kHz sampling rate and has 0.53 V/ g open-loop sensitivity, 58.7 mu g/root Hz resolution, +/-12g operation range, and 0.97e-6 g/(output units) scale factor, where these numbers are in close agreement with the estimated results.

On the Eigenstructure of DFT Matrices
Candan, Çağatay (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2011-03-01)
The discrete Fourier transform (DFT) not only enables fast implementation of the discrete convolution operation, which is critical for the efficient processing of analog signals through digital means, but it also represents a rich and beautiful analytical structure that is interesting on its own. A typical senior-level digital signal processing (DSP) course involves a fairly detailed treatment of DFT and a list of related topics, such as circular shift, correlation, convolution operations, and the connectio...
Modeling and simulation of a navigation system with an IMU and a Magnetometer
Kayasal, Uğur; Özgören, Mustafa Kemal; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2007)
In this thesis, the integration of a MEMS based inertial measurement unit and a three axis solid state magnetometer are studied. It is a fact that unaided inertial navigation systems, especially low cost MEMS based navigation systems have a divergent behavior. Nowadays, many navigation systems use GPS aiding to improve the performance, but GPS may not be applicable in some cases. Also, GPS provides the position and velocity reference whereas the attitude information is extracted through estimation filters. ...
Exact Relation Between Continuous and Discrete Linear Canonical Transforms
Öktem, Sevinç Figen (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2009-08-01)
Linear canonical transforms (LCTs) are a family of integral transforms with wide application in optical, acoustical, electromagnetic, and other wave propagation problems. The Fourier and fractional Fourier transforms are special cases of LCTs. We present the exact relation between continuous and discrete LCTs (which generalizes the corresponding relation for Fourier transforms), and also express it in terms of a new definition of the discrete LCT (DLCT), which is independent of the sampling interval. This p...
Analysis and design of passive microwave and optical devices using the multimode interference technique
Sunay, Ahmet Sertaç; Birand, Mehmet Tuncay; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2005)
The Multimode Interference (MMI) mechanism is a powerful toool used in the analysis and design of a certain class of optical, microwave and millimeter wave devices. The principles of the MMI method and the self-imaging principle is described. Using this method, NXM MMI couplers, MMI splitter/combiners are analyzed. Computer simulations for illustrating the "Multimode Interference Mechanism" are carried out. The MMI approach is used to analyze overmoded 'rectangular metallic' and 'dielectric slab' type of wa...
