12-03-2020 | Analog Devices | Test & Measurement

Analog Devices ADIS16507 Precision, MEMS IMU that incorporates a triaxial gyroscope and a triaxial accelerometer. The device offers a simplified, cost-effective method for combining accurate, multiaxis inertial sensing into industrial systems.


The MEMS IMU provides inertial sensors that combine with signal conditioning optimises dynamic performance. The factory calibration characterises each sensor for sensitivity, alignment, bias, linear acceleration (gyroscope bias), and point of percussion (accelerometer location). Subsequently, each sensor has dynamic compensation formulas that give accurate sensor measurements over a wide set of conditions.


All required motion testing and calibration are part of the production process at the factory, greatly reducing system integration time. Tight orthogonal alignment simplifies inertial frame alignment in navigation systems. The SPI and register structure give a simple interface for data collection and configuration control.


The device is offered in a 100-ball, BGA package that is approximately 15mm x 15mm x 5mm.


Typical applications include navigation, stabilisation, and instrumentation; unmanned and autonomous vehicles; smart agriculture and construction machinery; factory/industrial automation, robotics; virtual/augmented reality; and Internet of Moving Things.
