This paper presents an analysis of the acceleration output (sensitivity) in frequency decoupled MEMS tuning fork gyroscopes (TFG). We found that in-phase acceleration input is transduced into excitation of anti-phase mode, which results into acceleration output. Therefore, frequency decoupling (decoupling ratio, DR) of in- and anti-phase modes of sense resonators is key factor to suppress acceleration...
