Honeywell Introduces New MEMS Rotational Rate Sensor for Advanced GPS Assisted Navigation Systems

Honeywell Today Announced the Release of the New GG1178 MEMS Rotational Rate Sensor; an Angular Rate Sensor That Enables Low-Cost Inertial Measurement Units (IMU) for Advanced GPS Assisted Navigation Systems

MINNEAPOLIS, Oct. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Honeywell today announced the release of the new GG1178 MEMS Rotational Rate Sensor; an angular rate sensor that enables low-cost Inertial Measurement Units (IMU) for advanced GPS assisted navigation systems. These new MEMS rotational rate sensors are small, high performance devices designed to significantly reduce errors from acceleration and off-axis rotations.

Applications include: GPS-aided navigation, automotive stability control, medical orthotic, down hole energy steering, agricultural equipment, and camcorder stabilization.

The GG1178 sensors deliver excellent performance over a wide temperature range and in high vibration environments. Other unique features include:

     --  Broad dynamic range
     --  Low noise, high resolution
     --  Compact 14-pin LCC SMT package

The GG1178 utilizes a MEMS sensing element and a CMOS ASIC in a ceramic package. The sensing element utilizes differential capacitance and device symmetry to significantly reduce errors from acceleration and off-axis rotations. The ASIC detects and transforms changes in differential capacitance into an analog or digital output proportional to angular rate. Both sensitivity and output bandwidth are factory programmable.
