Real Time Eval System for Digital Output Sensor

Product Details

The iMEMS® Real Time Eval System is an easy-to-use evaluation tool targeting bench or desktop characterization of Analog Devices, Inc., inertial sensor products. The system consists of the inertial sensor evaluation board (ISEB), or main board, and a satellite board for any Analog Devices inertial sensor product. The ISEB connects directly to a PC via an USB cable, with the USB connection providing both communications and power to the board. The ISEB is connected to the satellite board through a ribbon cable. This cable allows the satellite to be easily manipulated for testing or separately placed into an environmental chamber for temperature or humidity testing. Separating the boards mitigates corruption of data due to the temperature and humidity effects of other components.

The ISEB is an universal main board and is intended to be used with various satellites of Analog Devices inertial sensors, including analog and digital accelerometers, as well as gyroscopes. The different products are evaluated by means of separate GUIs that are customized for performance and characterization measurements relevant to the inertial sensor being evaluated.


The EVAL-ADxZ-M system contains the ISEB and the EVAL-ADxZ-S satellite. Also included is an USB A to Mini-B cable to connect the ISEB to a PC and an 18-inch, 20-pin ribbon cable to connect the ISEB to the satellite.

The ADXL345 is an excellent 3-axis accelerometer with a wonderful variety of features and built-in algorithms. But skip these evaluation modules. Instead of the standard FTDI USB bridge with signed drivers, be sure to disable your Windows 7 digital driver signing (annoying) and be sure to free up a COM port between 1-4. When upgrading the ADuC7026 processor, edit the .ini file to select your COM port before running the program. Otherwise, the program won't detect the correct COM port. And as the user manual says, upgrading the firmware may take a couple tries (slowing down the baud rate doesn't seem to help either). After upgrading, be sure to get the latest labview GUI as backwards compatibility seems broken between v1.4 and v1.6. Instead of providing a compact satellite board that fits inside of your prototype device, you have to work around the socket. In summary, skip this dev kit and go straight to the prototype PCBA.

Excellent sensor with a poor interface
