Analog Devices Inc. Miniature MEMS IMU

Analog Devices’ ADIS16500 Precision, Miniature MEMS IMU are a simple and cost-effective solution to provide accurate, multi-axis sensing in industrial systems operating over a broad range of conditions. 

The ADIS16500 includes a 3-axis gyroscope and 3-axis accelerometer combined with integrated signal conditioning for optimized dynamic performance. The IMU is production tested and factory calibrated for sensitivity, bias, and alignment, ensuring accurate measurements and reducing system integration time. It outputs sensor data as well as calculated delta angle and delta velocity values over an SPI compatible interface, which can also be used to program various settings to control the IMU’s operation. 

The ADIS16500 operates from a single 3.0V to 3.6V supply and is housed in a 100-ball BGA package. 

  • Gyroscope: 3-axis, digital, ±2000°/sec dynamic range 
  • Accelerometer: 3-axis, digital accelerometer, ±392 m/sec2 dynamic range 
  • Factory calibrated sensitivity, bias, alignment, linear acceleration (gyroscope), and point of percussion (accelerometer) 
  • Outputs: gyroscope, accelerometers, calculated delta angle and delta velocity 
  • SPI compatible data communication 
  • Single-supply operation (VDD): 3.0 V to 3.6 V
