IMUs enhance navigation in IoT devices

The ADIS1647x precision industrial inertial measurement units (IMUs) from Analog Devices are in stock at Mouser Electronics. New additions to Analog Devices’ line of MEMS IMUs, the ADIS1647x IMUs deliver improvements to navigation and safety in industrial and Internet of Things (IoT) applications, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), smart agriculture, and autonomous vehicles.

The devices are also ideal for the growing market for virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) devices.

The IMUs deliver six-degree-of-freedom sensing using triple-axis MEMS-based gyroscopes and accelerometers, with a combination of ultra-low noise, ultra-low drift, and industry leading vibration rejection, allowing devices to accurately characterize motion even when disturbed by wind, vibration, temperature or turbulence.

Measuring 11mm × 15m × 11m, the IMUs are tested and factory calibrated for bias, alignment, sensitivity and linear acceleration to ensure each sensor can provide accurate measurements via dynamic compensation formulas.

The ADIS16470 variant offers a gyroscope dynamic range of ±2000 degrees per second (dps), and the ADIS16475 and ADIS16477 variants are available in dynamic ranges of ±125, ±500, or ±2000dps.

Support comes in the shape of a robust selection of evaluation tools consisting of the EVAL-ADIS2Z evaluation board and ADIS1647x/PCBZ breakout boards.

Designers can plug a breakout board into the 16-pin connector on the evaluation board to develop a prototype using the corresponding IMU.
