Using microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) technology, Sensonor’s STIM300 inertial measurement unit (IMU) offers 12 times less weight, 10 times less volume, and 5 times less power consumption when compared to existing solutions with similar performance. With this capability, the IMU can address applications that previously were addressed by FOG (Fiber Optic Gyro) solutions.
Specifics of the sensor include: 0.5°/h gyro bias instability, 0.15°/√h angular random walk, 10°/h gyro bias error over temperature gradients, 0.05mg accelerometer bias instability, and axis misalignment of 1mrad. The IMU weighs less than 0.12 lbs (55g) with a volume less than 2.2 In3 (35cm3). A kit simplifies the evaluation and design in of the IMU.
