Paper Abstract

Surface Acoustic Wave gyroscope presents itself as a cheap and effective option for several applications ranging from automotive to industrial sector. The possibility of its wireless interrogation without any power source makes it even more attractive. This paper present a brief discussion of the use of Coupling of Modes theory for the optimization of the design of the SAW gyroscope. Further, the Equivalent Circuit Model is employed to model the gyroscope. The results from HP EES of simulation are compared with measurements from the rate table experiments and the performance of the gyroscope is evaluated in the light of the same.
