MEMSIC Inc. Announces Economical, Compact, Highly Accurate VG380 Vertical Gyro Modules
May 18 17
MEMSIC Inc. announced the addition of the VG380 to its portfolio of inertial modules. These new vertical gyros provide highly accurate pitch and roll (with respect to gravity), in both static and dynamic conditions, at a very attractive size and price points. The static and dynamic accuracy is specified at +/-0.2 and +/-1.0 degrees (respectively) over the -40°C to +85°C temperature range. The VG380 is offered in two package/interface options, VG380SA and VG380ZA. The VG380SA is a 41x48x22mm module designed for standalone applications, including built in power conditioning (compatible with power supplies from 9 – 32V), and with RS-232 /RS-422 interface. The VG380ZA is designed for OEM/embedded applications, offering a much smaller 24x37x9.5mm package, and an SPI/UART interface for convenient integration into an end user system. The VG380 is the latest addition to a family of interchangeable and compatible modules offering different levels of functionality and performance. The IMU380 is a 6 or 9 DOF (Degrees-of-Freedom) inertial measurement unit which provides X, Y and Z acceleration, angular rate, and magnetic field (fully calibrated over temperature); the VG380 now adds the algorithms to deliver accurate pitch and roll information; and the AHRS380 (Attitude-Heading-Reference-System) adds additional algorithms to compute both attitude and heading. All of these versions are available in both the embedded and the standalone packages described above. The VG380 is designed for attitude determination and platform stabilization in applications such as unmanned aerial vehicles, satellite antenna tracking, precision agriculture, surveying instruments, and construction equipment, where size, performance, and cost are critical. The VG380ZA and VG380SA are in production and available immediately. Pricing starts at $353 (Qty 100). There is an evaluation kit (EVAL-KIT DMU380ZA) complete with a USB PC-connection and simple-to-use GUI to speed the evaluation and prototyping phases.

MEMSIC Inc. Unveils New Family of Acceleration and Tip-Over Sensor Components, MXD6240 and 41AU, MXC6244AU, MXC6245XU
Jun 29 16
MEMSIC Inc. has unveiled a new family of acceleration and tip-over sensor components that includes four new sensors, the MXD6240 and 41AU, MXC6244AU, MXC6245XU. These new sensors provide tip-over and acceleration sensing in a wide range of Automotive, Industrial and Consumer applications, such as motorcycle and off-road vehicle tip-over detection, vehicle navigation and Digital SLR camera horizontal position detection. The 624x Family uses MEMSIC's proprietary thermal accelerometer technology that utilizes heated gas molecules to sense acceleration instead of a mechanical beam structure, the transducer exhibits a natural low-pass frequency response with virtually no mechanical resonance and extremely high accuracy over a range of temperatures. The MXD6240 and MXD6241AU are autonomous inclination sensors with 8 built-in, pin-programmable tip-over angle thresholds from 40 to 70 degrees making them ideal for tip-over applications where no microcontroller is available. If the device orientation with respect to vertical exceeds the programmed threshold angle, the digital output changes state to alert the system to a tip-over or fall-down event. In addition to the transducer's inherent low-pass response, an internal anti-vibration filter provides >45dB attenuation above 25Hz, and >60dB attenuation above 50Hz, setting it apart from all other tip-over sensors in the market. The MXC6244AU and MXC6245XU are complete 2 axis I2C interface accelerometers each with 1 mg of resolution. The MXC6244AU is ±8g full scale range device. It includes the internal anti-vibration filter and the 8 angle thresholds. They are programmable through the I2C interface. The MXC6245XU is a ±2g full scale range device and is targeted at cost sensitive applications not requiring the programmable anti-vibration filter or the 8 programmable tip-over angle thresholds. It offers 12 bits of resolution (1 mg) and has the same outstanding over temperature bias performance of typically 0.1 mg/C. The 624x family offers a full range of functionality, features and performance to serve the diverse needs of different applications.
