Compact, Precision Ten Degree of Freedom Inertial Sensor

Product Details

The ADIS16448 iSensor® device is a complete inertial system that includes a triaxial gyroscope, a triaxial accelerometer, a triaxial magnetometer, and pressure sensors. Each sensor in the ADIS16448 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 (gyro bias). As a result, each sensor has its own dynamic compensation formulas that provide accurate sensor measurements.

The ADIS16448 provides a simple, cost-effective method for integrating accurate, multiaxis inertial sensing into industrial systems, especially when compared with the complexity and investment associated with discrete designs. All necessary 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 provide a simple interface for data collection and configuration control.

The ADIS16448 has a compatible pinout for systems that currently use the ADIS1633x, ADIS1635x, ADIS1636x, and ADIS1640x IMU products. The ADIS16448 is packaged in a module that is approximately 24.1 mm × 37.7 mm × 10.6 mm and has a standard connector interface.

ADIS16448/PCBZ Circuit Diagram

Product Details

The ADIS16448/PCBZ is a "breakout board," which provides (1) ADIS16448AMLZ, (1) flexible cable and (1) interface PCB to simplify the process of developing a prototype connection with an existing embedded processor system. It is required for connecting the ADIS16448AMLZ directly to the EVAL-ADIS evaluation system as well. The ADIS16448AMLZ is a fully-calibrated, MEMS IMU, which provides a serial peripheral interface (SPI) for all digital communications. It provides a dual-row, 24-pin connector interface that minimizes board space but does not support standard ribbon cable connections. The flexible cable and interface PCB provides access to the ADIS16448ABMLZ, using dual-row, 12-pin connectors, which supports standard ribbon cable systems and hand-soldering connection techniques.


EVAL-ADIS Circuit Diagram

Product Details

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.
