Analog Devices is featuring a new series of five high-performance IMUs. The ADIS16470, ADIS16475 and ADIS16477 IMUs provide performance improvements that address the navigation- and safety-related needs of industrial applications in compact size with standard SMT assembly. The ADIS16465 and ADIS16467 IMUs offer similar performance advantages in a more ruggedized enclosure option.
All of the IMUs provide six DoF sensing via triple-axis MEMS-based accelerometers and gyroscopes, and are focused on the demands of the IIoMT and its need for precise geolocation. Their performance allows systems to characterize motion accurately despite turbulence, vibration, wind, temperature, and other environmental disturbances, resulting in more-accurate navigation and guidance, and/or instrument stabilization. The IMUs are specifically designed to reject what are otherwise significant error sources, such as ‘g’-influence, cross-axis sensitivity, and temperature and mechanical stress related drifts.
The ADIS1646x and ADIS1647x IMUs are supported by the EVAL-ADIS2Z, a PC-based tool for evaluation which enables basic demonstration, individual register access, and high-speed data capture, as well as the breakout boards for connecting ADIS16xxx IMU products to development platforms.
