Precision IMU delivers six degree-of-freedom sensing
The ADIS16507 precision inertial measurement unit (IMU) from Analog Devices is in stock at Mouser Electronics.
Part of the Analog Devices line of microelectromechanical system (MEMS) IMUs, this device provides a simplified, cost-effective method for integrating accurate, multi-axis inertial sensing into industrial systems as well as Internet of Things (IoT) applications, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), smart agriculture, and autonomous vehicles.
It is also ideal for the growing virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) markets.
The IMU delivers six degree-of-freedom (DoF) sensing using a MEMS-based triple-axis gyroscope and triple-axis accelerometer, allowing devices to accurately characterise motion in a broad set of conditions.
The 15 mm × 15 mm × 5 mm IMU is tested and factory calibrated for bias, alignment, sensitivity and linear acceleration to ensure each sensor can provide accurate measurements via dynamic compensation formulas.
It is available in models with dynamic ranges of ±125, ±500, or ±2000 degrees per second.
Tight orthogonal alignment simplifies inertial frame alignment in navigation systems, and a serial peripheral interface (SPI) and register structure provide a simple interface for data collection and configuration control.
