SensorDynamics, Graz-Lebring, Austria, offers the 6DoF-IMU inertial measurement unit that is based on MEMS sensors and has outer dimensions of 1 in.3 The compact device offers 1500 g shock resistance in operation and 2000 g unpowered; a measurement range of ±300°/s and ±5 g, with an ENOB of 10 bits; max. offset of ±1.5°/s and ±0.11 g, respectively, for all operating conditions; and SPI and UART interfaces. Continuous self-diagnosis functions increase the reliability of the application system. Applications include substitution for several single inertial sensors in vehicles, backup in heading systems, automotive black boxes, and motion control for robots.
