ADI Releases MEMS iSensor IMU with 10-Degrees-of-Freedom

Analog Devices (ADI), a company specializing in signal conditioning and data conversion technology, has released the ADIS16407 iSensor inertial measurement unit (IMU) with 10-Degrees-of-Freedom (DoF).

Analog Devices' 10-Degrees-of-Freedom MEMS iSensor IMU

The IMU integrates a digital pressure sensor, triaxial ±2.5 gauss digital magnetometer, triaxial accelerometer, and triaxial gyroscope into a single unit. Individual sensors combine ADI’s signal conditioning and iMEMS technology to effectively optimize the ADIS16407 IMU’s dynamic 10- DoF performance. The sensors are factory aligned and calibrated for temperature, bias and sensitivity to maximize accuracy.

The digital pressure sensor is rated at 10 mbar to 1200 mbar. The accelerometer is a high-performance digital ±18 g iMEMS component, while the triaxial digital iMEMS gyroscope has a digital range scaling of ±75°/, ±150°/, ±300°/ secs.

Unmanned vehicles, precision autonomous instruments and emergency first responders require navigation technology that provides precise alignment, multiple axes of sensing and ability to track the location even in GPS-denied environments such as caves, mines and warehouses. The ADIS16407 iSensor IMU combines multiple sensors to provide these abilities.
