Analog Devices Inc. ADIS16488 Tactical Grade Inertial Sensors

Analog Devices ADIS16488 Tactical Grade Ten Degrees of Freedom Inertial Sensors are part of an inertial system designed to provide a simple method for integrating accurate, multiaxis inertial sensing into industrial systems. Each inertial sensor in the ADIS16488A combines industry-leading iMEMS® technology with signal conditioning that optimizes dynamic performance. The factory calibration characterizes each sensor for sensitivity, bias, alignment, and linear acceleration (gyroscope bias). As a result, each sensor has its own dynamic compensation formulas that provide accurate sensor measurements. Applications include platform stabilization and control, navigation, personnel tracking, instrumentation, and robotics.
