EMCORE presents the new SDC500 M
ALHAMBRA, CA, October 12, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – EMCORE Corporation (EMKR), a leading provider of advanced mixed-signal products for the aerospace and defense, navigation, fiber-optic communications and detection, today announced the introduction of its new SDC500 MEMS (Micro-Electromechanical Systems) inertial measurement unit (IMU), incorporating EMCORE’s market-leading quartz technology and optimized for civil, commercial aerospace applications , industrial and marine high precision. The SDC500 is not controlled by ITAR (ECCN 7A994) and is available without a US export license required for most end users around the world.
The SDC500 is available in several performance cost options ranging from a 1 ° / h precision gyroscope and 1 mg accelerometer to a 20 ° / h gyroscope and 5 mg accelerometer bias in temperature, shock and vibration environments. This allows customers to select the SDC500 version that meets their specific performance and budget requirements, from near tactical quality to high performance commercial / industrial quality.
The performance capabilities of the SDC500 are based on the proven, reliable and accurate quartz inertial MEMS sensor technology of EMCORE’s SDI500 Tactical IMU. It is built with the latest generation EMCORE gyroscopes, accelerometers and high speed signal processing to achieve exceptional precision performance. The SDC500’s gyroscope design retains the sensitivity and linearity of quartz MEMS and dramatically improves noise immunity. In addition, EMCORE’s quartz MEMS technology enables reproducible high volume production of precisely machined sensor structures, combined with the inherent large signal output and thermal stability of the quartz material.
“The introduction of the SDC500 IMU further expands and diversifies EMCORE’s IMU product portfolio into high-precision commercial grade applications and provides customers with the flexibility to precisely choose the performance and cost option they want. need, ”commented David Wojciechowski, vice president of sales, marketing and business development for EMCORE. It is ideal for a wide range of applications ranging from general aviation and flight control to GPS aided navigation, autonomous vehicles, aerial and marine geo-mapping, commercial pipeline inspection, ‘mining and agriculture, robotics, etc. Added Mr. Wojciechowski.
The small, lightweight, low-power, hermetically sealed SDC500 IMU offers integration features found in the original SDI500 IMU, including industry-standard serial communication, configurable communication protocols, time-of-validity synchronization (TOV), continuous integrated test (BIT), electromagnetic interference protection (EMI), long MTBF and flexible input power. These features make the SDC500 IMU easy to use in a wide range of applications and harsh operating environments.
The SDC500 is available for shipping high-speed orders with short delivery times. For more information and specifications, call +1 866-234-4976; E-mail: [email protected]; or visit us on the web: www.emcore.com/nav.
