Presented by Analog Devices and Avnet. For MEMS IMU applications where the inertial profile is complex and highly dynamic there are a number of attributes to consider when evaluating capabilities. Evaluating these attributes early in the design cycle provides an advantage over chasing open-ended deliverables, like “as accurate as possible”. This webcast provides an overview of these attributes and key application conditions for the designer to understand.

Attend this webinar to learn about:

  • Understand the difference between consumer-grade and performance-driven MEMS IMUs (inertial measurement units)
  • Analysis techniques for combining basic application information with MEMS IMU specifications to predict key system-level behaviors
  • A common-sense approach to integrating high-performance MEMS into demanding applications.

Who should attend:
System architects and developers who are looking for ways to integrate high-performance MEMS IMUs into their motion control applications.
