Precision Triaxial Inclinometer and Accelerometer with SPI
The ADIS16210 iSensor® is a digital inclinometer system that provides precise measurements for both pitch and roll angles over a full orientation range of ±180°. It combines a MEMS triaxial acceleration sensor with signal processing, addressable user registers for data collection/programming, and a SPI-compatible serial interface. In addition, the production process includes unit specific calibration for optimal accuracy performance. It also offers digital temperature sensor and power supply measurements together with configuration controls for in-system calibration, sample rate, filtering, alarms, I/O configuration, and power management.
The MEMS sensor elements are bound to an aluminum core for tight platform coupling and excellent mechanical stability. An internal clock drives the data sampling system, which eliminates the need for an external clock source. The SPI and data buffer structure provide convenient access to accurate sensor data and configuration controls.
The ADIS16210 is available in a 15 mm × 24 mm × 15 mm module that provides mounting tabs with M2-sized mounting holes and a flexible, edge terminated connector interface. It has an extended operating temperature range of −40°C to +125°C.

This product has been released to the market. The data sheet contains all final specifications and operating conditions. For new designs, ADI recommends utilization of these products.
NOTICE: The ADIS16210/PCBZ is no longer the preferred breakout board for the ADIS16210. Use (1) ADIS16210CMLZ and (1) ADIS16ACL1/PCBZ to develop the same function, which enables the use of a standard ribbon cable to connect the ADIS16210 to an embedded processor interface or to the evaluation system.
The ADIS16210/PCBZ is a breakout board, which provides (1) ADIS16210CMLZ and (1) interface PCB to simplify the process of prototyping during the early stages of system design and evaluation. The ADIS16210CMLZ is a fully-integrated/calibrated, digital tilt sensor, which provides a serial peripheral interface (SPI) for all digital communications. It provides a flexible connector interface, with a with 15-lead, cable edge interface. which minimizes board space, but does not support standard ribbon cable connections. The interface PCB provides access to the ADIS16210CMLZ, using a dual-row, 16-pin connector, which supports standard ribbon cable systems and hand-soldering connection techniques. The interface PCB also provides two sets of mounting holes: one set of holes for attaching the ADIS16210CMLZ to the interface PCB and another set of holes for mounting the interface board to the system’s frame. The first set of holes line up with the ADIS16210CMLZ's mounting holes and are pre-tapped for use with M2x0.4mm machine screws. The second set of holes are support M2 machine screws and line up with M2x0.4mm, pre-tapped holes on the ADISUSB evaluation system board.
- Replace the ADIS16210/PCBZ with (1) ADIS16210CMLZ and (1) ADIS16ACL1/PCBZ
- Replace the ADIS16228/PCBZ with (1) ADIS16228CMLZ and (1) ADIS16ACL1/PCBZ
The EVAL-ADISZ will not be available for purchase after February 24, 2017. For future ADIS16xxx evaluation needs, please use the EVAL-ADIS2 and the most appropriate breakout board (to connect ADIS16xxx device to the EVAL-ADIS2).
The EVAL-ADIS system provides a simple, PC-based tool, for evaluating iSensor products, for those who are not ready to integrate them into embedded processor systems. This system supports application software that enable basic demonstration, individual register access and high-speed data capture for each supported device. Each application software package comes with an installation wizard, which facilitates simple installation and also includes a simple USB-driver package that is easy to use. All software packages associated with the EVAL-ADIS are compatible with Windows XP, Vista and 7 and provides both 32-bit and 64-bit USB drivers. The EVAL-ADIS circuit board is 0.125” thick, which enables pre-drilled, pre-tapped mounting holes for each iSensor device. The mounting holes accommodate M2x0.4mm machine screws. This kit also includes 5 sets of M2x0.4 machines screws, which provide for the various package thickness and eliminate the need to procure additional hardware. The integrated power system eliminates the need for external power supplies in most cases, but does provide for an external power supply input, for supply-sensitivity testing. The power system uses the USB’s +5V and provides a linear regulator option for +3.3V devices.
ADI has always placed the highest emphasis on delivering products that meet the maximum levels of quality and reliability. We achieve this by incorporating quality and reliability checks in every scope of product and process design, and in the manufacturing process as well. "Zero defects" for shipped products is always our goal.
