Andover, Mass., June 9, 2015—MEMSIC announces the launch of its latest addition, the INS380, to its portfolio of Inertial Systems enabled with SmartSensing technology targeted to a broad range of precision motion sensing applications. The portfolio offering consists of Inertial Measurement Units (IMU), Vertical Gyros (VG), Attitude and Heading Reference Systems (AHRS), Inertial Navigation Systems (INS) and Tilt measurement systems in a variety of packages suited for system designers to end equipment manufacturers.
The latest product from MEMSIC, the INS380SA, is a complete inertial navigation system with a built-in 48-channel GPS receiver. The SmartSensing technology enables a turnkey system with better than 0.01 m/s velocity measurement accuracy. The integrated 3-axis magnetometer allows for accurate operation when the GPS signal is lost or when the vehicle comes to a stop.
SmartSensing technology provides users with unmatched sensor fusion and performance in critical motion sensing applications. SmartSensing combines enhanced and patented Kalman-based algorithm with proprietary temperature, motion and alignment calibration for consistent and high accuracy performance over a wide range of extreme operating conditions. Applications include unmanned ground and aerial vehicles, platform stabilization, avionics, precision agriculture, construction, and more.
"With over 400 man-years of design and development experience and knowledge in designing IMUs and sophisticated MEMS sensor solutions", said Masoud Beheshti, VP and General Manager of MEMSIC's system division, "MEMSIC is in a very unique position in the industry to help enable designer's unprecedented size, accuracy and cost, with our SmartSensing technology".
INS380SA-400 EVALKIT is available for evaluation and ships completer with an INS380 Unit along with necessary accessories for quick installation. Designers can evaluate and configure the system using MEMSIC's NavView Software, available for download from http://www.memsic.com.
