Vertical Gyro Modules Are Small And Accurate

The VG380 vertical gyros promise highly accurate pitch and roll (with respect to gravity), in both static and dynamic conditions. The static and dynamic accuracy is specified at ±0.2° and ±1°, 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 41 mm x 48 mm x 22 mm module designed for standalone applications, including built in power conditioning (compatible with power supplies from 9 – 32V), and with RS-232 and RS-422 interfaces. The VG380ZA is designed for OEM/embedded applications, offering a smaller, 24 mm x 37 mm x 9.5 mm package, and an SPI/UART interface. The VG380ZA and VG380SA are available now. 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.
