• STIM202 Gyro Module
| description :
STIM is a cluster of 1, 2 or 3 high accurate MEMS-based gyros housed in a miniature package. Each axis is factory calibrated for bias and sensitivity, and compensated for temperature effects to provide high-accuracy measurements. For many applications the excellent performance of STIM202 will replace FOG’s and improve system solution with respect to robustness, reliability, size/ weight, power and cost. This is accomplished by combining the well proven Sensonor ButterflyGyroTM with full digital operation. Input range and output formats The STIM202 full-scale angluar rate input range is 400°/s. Selectable output formats are angular rate or increment angle. Reliability and robustness Perfect tuning of excitation and detection frequencies, as well as perfectly balanced vibrational masses, result in very low sensitivity to vibration and shock. For use in extreme environments, the STIM202 provides a vibration isolated internal assembly to avoid rectification errors. Interface The unit is powered by a single +5V supply and communicates via a Plug & Play high-level RS422 interface. Flexibility and self diagnostics The use of a 32-bit RISC ARM microcontroller provides flexibility in configuration, e.g. for choices of output unit, sampling frequency, LP filter cut-off frequency, RS422 bit rate and line termination ON/OFF. The gyro module provides a diagnostic function, that will flag any type of errors in the system. For more advanced users, the STIM202 may be set in Service Mode, where all configuration parameters may be intermediately or permanently changed by overwriting current settings in the flash memory.
Service Mode also provides ability to perform single measurements and to access more diagnostic information. Evaluation kits Evaluation kits are available, supporting initial testing and device configuration. The starter kits are small, flexible and communicate via USB.
Additional PCI cards are offered for more extensive testing or characterization. The RS422 connection of the PCI card is directly compatible with the STIM202 communication cable included in the starter kit. Applications The STIM202 is designed to replace FOGs in general, and enables new areas of use.
Typical applications for the product is attitude heading reference systems (AHRSs), flight recorders, platform stabilization (e.g. antennas, cameras, gimbals, etc.), remote weapon systems (RWSs), turrents, mid range missiles and rockets, high performance industrial applications, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs), space applications, etc.
