Aceinna has announced high volume availability of the new ACEINNA IMU383ZA sensor.
It integrates triple-redundant, 3-axis MEMS accelerometer and gyroscope sensors and is factory-calibrated over the -40C to +85C industrial temperature range.
This enables the sensor to provide consistent performance through extreme operating environments for a wide variety of applications including automotive ADAS, autonomous systems, drones, robotics, agricultural, construction, and other industrial machines.
The IMU383ZA offers improved performance, in addition to a unique fault-tolerant sensor architecture for improved reliability. The IMU383ZA provides a standard SPI bus for cost-effective board-to-board communications. Other critical new features include advanced synchronisation and a bootloader for field upgradeability.
Measuring only 24mm x 37mm x 9.5mm, the ACEINNA IMU383ZA integrates a triple-redundant architecture, that, combined with the small, low-cost packaging, meet the challenging performance, reliability and cost requirements of the automotive market including the areas of autonomous vehicles, self-driving taxis/delivery vehicles. ADAS systems, electronic stability control, Lane Keep Assist applications, etc.
“The recently developed ACEINNA IMU383ZA is an improved, pin-compatible version of our popular IMU381ZA,” said Michael Murphy, executive VP at ACEINNA.
“It offers high performance and a triple-redundant sensor architecture for ultra-high reliability.”
The IMU383ZA architecture consists of three independent, 3-Axis Accelerometer and 3-Axis Gyros for excellent accuracy and reliability.
By embedding a triple-redundant sensor array, the IMU383ZA uses ACEINNA’s proprietary voting scheme to utilise only valid sensor data. Any defective sensor output or errant dataset will be ignored or de-rated in importance.
