Analog Devices ADIS16135 gyroscope and ADIS16385 IMU: Tactical-grade gyroscope, IMU sensors provide 6° of freedom
EDN Staff - May 23, 2011
The ADIS16135 iSensor precision angular-rate gyroscope and ADIS16385 6°-of-freedom iSensor IMU (inertial-measurement unit) integrate MEMS cores, allowing easier implementation of stabilization, navigation, and control features. The sensors combine tactical-grade performance of less than 10°/ hour, bias stability of 6°/hour, and angular random walk of 0.75°/√h̅o̅u̅r̅. Factory calibration results in sensitivity of 16 ppm/°C and bias stability to within 0.003°/second over −40 to +85°C. The dynamically compensated sensors provide a simple user interface and control through a standard SPI and register interface. The gyroscope and IMU target use in a range of industrial and instrumentation applications, including camera stability; antenna alignment; down-hole drilling; and GPS navigation in ships, aircraft, fleet vehicles, agricultural machinery, and factory robotics. The ADIS16135 gyroscope comes in a 36×44×14-mm module package and sells for $499, and the ADIS16385 IMU comes in a 36×47×39-mm module package and sells for $869 (1000).
