The ADIS16120 is a Low Noise and power efficient Angular Rate Sensor (gyroscope). The circuit includes embedded signal conditioning to provide low noise operation over the entire 300o/s dynamic range, as well as excellent offset and gain accuracy over temperature. The surface-micromachining manufacturing technology is the same high volume BIMOS process used by Analog Devices for its high reliability automotive airbag sensor line. The output signal, RATE OUT, is a voltage proportional to angular rate about the axis normal to the top surface of the package. A precision reference and a temperature output are available for system-level use and a digital self-test feature is available to electromechanically excite the sensor and verify proper operation. Variations in Range, Sensitivity, and Bandwidth can be addressed (consult the factory).
