Technology Analysis Report on MEMS Gyroscopes Analog Devices Precision Angular Rate Sensor

Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "MEMS Gyroscopes Analog Devices ADIS16136 Precision Angular Rate Sensor - Technology Analysis" report to their offering.

MEMS gyroscopes for tactical grade applications made a lot of progress in the past few years in term of reliability. They are now accepted in high-reliability environments, and are even starting to replace FOGs and other technologies in tactical applications.

The ADIS16136 is a ±450°/sec digital gyroscope sensing system. It uses a low-cost MEMS technology based on Analog Devices iMEMS® process and quad-core design allowing excellent vibration immunity.

In order to achieve a cost effective tactical grade module, Analog Devices uses a very smart design integrating multiple in-house discretes gyro and integrated circuits. This design allows ADI to reuse components from its portfolio and thus to optimize manufacturing cost.

The ADIS16136 is a 36 mm × 44 mm × 14 mm module targeted for applications such as platform control, navigation, robotics, and medical instrumentation.
