This paper presents an optimized method for microgyroscope design. A lumped dynamic model is presented to optimize the microgyroscope performances. The parameters are categorized into function variables and style variables to reduce optimization cost. The maximum sensitivity and minimum area of the device are selected and weighted as the combined multiple objective functions. The optimization is conducted with a solver in Excel 9.5TM Finite element simulation is used to verify these optimized results. Simulation results show good agreement with the calculation. The optimized microgyroscope was fabricated. The resonant characteristic from experiment is compared with the optimized results and simulation results.
