Integrated accelerometer/gyro combo series

The fully integrated ADXC150x series of inertial combo sensors from Analog Devices, Inc. (Norwood, MA) brings together reliability and accuracy with shock and vibration immunity at a reduced footprint. According to the company, the ADXC150x combo sensor family overcomes the substantial challenges associated with integrating an automotive-grade gyroscope and accelerometer in a single package. These combo sensors integrate up to 4 degrees of freedom into a single device, which not only reduces component count and expensive, time-consuming custom integration, but also improves inertial sensing accuracy and reliability. Yaw gyro drift over temperature is less than 1 degree/s (typical), and the internal temperature sensor calibrates the output to provide excellent stability across the whole automotive temperature range of −40°C to 105°C (−40°F to 221°F). The ADXC150x also features comprehensive electromechanical fail-safe routines and continuously monitors device health to ensure the integrity of the data. For more information, visit www.analog.com.
