Analog Devices Introduces MEMS Inertial Measurement Units

Analog Devices has proclaimed that it is adding two precision MEMS (micro-electro-mechanical system) Inertial Sensors to its portfolio of iSensor motion sensor products.

The new sensors, ADIS16334 and ADIS16375 Inertial Measurement units (IMUs) would help medical and industrial equipment manufacturers to incorporate motion capture and control attributes, to attain accurate and effortless use to entrench applications for tracking, instrument control, embedding navigation, platform stabilization and other sensing functions. The ADIS16375 is the best performing IMU with a gyro stability of 0.003 o/sec, while the ADIS16334 is much smaller than the earlier IMU versions, which are useful in space limited and high-density applications.

According to Bob Scannell, business development manager of MEMS/Sensors Group, ADI, achieving high performance motion sensing was a difficult problem to solve, because of the comparative low level of integration and working of commercial inertial sensors. These two sensors would assist designers to enhance performance levels by supplying ultra compact and superior performing IMUs, at the same time providing unsurpassed or matchless environmental toughness to innovative applications, such as surgical tool guidance. No extra integration, calibration or testing is required for these IMUs. What is needed is a SPI interface which is industry standardized, and power for providing precise data even in the most demanding environments. Analog Devices with a customer base of 60,000, provides several kinds of electronic equipment.
