In this paper the simple accelerometers based on PZT thin films were developed and characterized. The functions of seismic mass and spring are given by a boss loaded cantilever structure. The strain of the cantilever is detected by a Pb(Zr,Ti)O-3 thin film. A 2 mm long and 0.8 mm wide cantilever yielded a response of 0.6 mV/g In the frequency interval between I and 600 Hz. With Delta f = 600Hz a limit of about 1mg* at 1Hz, and less above this frequency, was observed. The response predicted by the analytical model is close to the actual response of the device. A working miniaturized accelerometer prototype could be thus demonstrated.
