- Parasitic capacitances are unavoidable in silicon microgyroscope because of the limitation of MEMS technology and packaging. Due to the existence of parasitic capacitance between the driving electrodes and driving detection electrodes in the gyroscope, another possible oscillation loop is formed, which leads to unwanted high frequency oscillation in the driving loop. In order to solve the problem caused by the parasitic capacitances, a new type of interface circuit based on two-stage integrators is presented in this paper. Firstly, a theoretical analysis model of the proposed circuit is established, then it was simulated in Cadence/PSPice with the established electrical equivalent model of the driving module. Experimental results indicate that the proposed interface circuit can effectively eliminate high frequency oscillation in the drive loop, and it has an equivalent input current noise of 24.7fA/√Hz, corresponding to a capacitance resolution of 0.061aF/√Hz.
