ADI has played a major role in helping customers design accurate safety systems for electronic stability control, roll detection and crash sensing for more than 20 years.
The ADXRS800 is an angular rate sensor (gyroscope) intended for automotive electronic stability control, vehicle rollover detection, and other high performance applications. An advanced, differential, quad-sensor design rejects the influence of linear acceleration, enabling the ADXRS800 to operate in exceedingly harsh environments where shock and vibration are present.
The ADXRS800 uses an internal, continuous self-test archi-tecture. The integrity of the electromechanical system is checked by applying a high frequency electrostatic force to the sense structure to generate a rate signal that can be differentiated from the baseband rate data and internally analyzed.
The ADXRS800 is capable of sensing an angular rate of up to ±300°/sec. Angular rate data is presented as a 16-bit word, as part of a 32-bit SPI message.
The ADXRS800 is available in a cavity plastic SOIC-16 and an SMT-compatible vertical mount package and is capable of operating across both a wide voltage range (3.3 V to 5 V) and temperature range (−40°C to 105°C).
- Electronic stability control
- High performance platform stabilization
The acceleration data output from the device is a true 16-bit word and is contained in a 32-bit SPI transaction. The SPI interface contains additional fault detection bits and data formatting bits designed to assist high reliability applications. SPI communications are compatible up to 8 MHz. The 16-bit acceleration data-word offers a resolution of 0.434 mg/LSB for the ±14.2 g full-scale range of the device.
The ADXL703 is available in an SOIC package with an inverted paddle for improved EMI/RFI robustness. The ADXL703 operates at both 3.3 V and 5 V, and is specified to operate across the full automotive temperature range of −40°C to +105°C.
