This paper presents a novel design methodology and hardware implementation for the drive-mode control of vibrational micro-electro-mechanical systems gyroscopes. Assuming that the sense mode (axis) of the gyroscope is operating under open loop, the drive-mode controller compensates an undesirable mechanical spring-coupling term between the two vibrating modes, attenuates the effect of mechanical-thermal noise, and most importantly, forces the output of the drive mode to oscillate along a desired trajectory. The stability and robustness of the control system are successfully justified through frequency-domain analysis. The tracking error between the real output and the reference signal for the drive mode is proved to be converging with the increase of the bandwidth of the controller. The controller is first simulated and then implemented using field-programmable analog array circuits on a vibrational piezoelectric beam gyroscope. The simulation and experimental results verified the effectiveness of the controller.
