Conventional capacitive MEMS gyroscopes require close matching between the resonant frequencies of drive mode and sense mode. However, the uncertainties in the microfabrication process impair the robustness of the gyroscopes and often lead to unpredictable device performance. This paper analyzes a 4 degree-of-freedom (DOF) non-resonant gyroscope which is less vulnerable to the fabrication perturbations. Unlike the conventional resonant gyroscope which has only one resonant frequency for drive and sense modes, the 4-DOF gyroscope includes two resonant frequencies for each mode. The non-resonant gyroscope design aims to reduce resonance frequency matching, namely to minimize the effect of the inevitable fabrication uncertainties as well as to increase the bandwidth with less sacrifice to the sensitivity. The device performance is analyzed and optimized by the behavior model approach in CovcntorWare which significantly accelerates the simulation compared to the traditional finite element method. The optimized non-resonant gyroscope with higher fabrication tolerance as well as enhanced device performance is proven to be an effective design and can be used in a wide range of applications.
