Smart Inertial Sensors Serve in Medical Devices
Enabling implementation of motion and navigation control in a broader range of applications, including medical instrumentation, the iSensor family of inertial sensors from Analog Devices has added the ADIS16405 six-degrees-of-freedom (6DoF) inertial measurement unit (IMU) and the ADIS16300 four-degrees-of-freedom (4DoF) IMU. With a 0.05-degree rate-sensor orthogonal-alignment-accuracy, features of the ADIS16405 also include a three-axis gyroscope, magnetometer, and accelerometer with pre-calibrated and pre-aligned inertial and magnetic sensor for an angular random walk of below 2.0 degrees/vhr and temperature stability of 40 ppm/°C. Integrating a single-axis gyroscope and a three-axis accelerometer, the ADIS16300 is presented as the industry’s lowest cost, precision multi-axis inertial sensor. Angular rate sensing can be selected for ±75, ±150, and ±300 degrees/sec dynamic range, with a ±3 g tri-axis acceleration dynamic range. The ADIS16300 offers a 350-Hz bandwidth, and up to 1,200-SPS sample rates.
