This applications note discusses basic gyroscope spin motor excitation requirements for many models of US Dynamics miniature Rate Integrating Gyroscopes (RIG) and Rate Gyroscopes. Most US Dynamics miniature gyroscopes utilize 2 phase synchronous (hysteresis) motors to drive the gyroscope inertia...

This applications note discusses in brief, the typical input signals to and output signals from a US Dynamics miniature spinning mass Rate Gyroscope. Since there are several variations of rate gyroscopes, the signals exemplified here represent those typical of the Model 475 Rate Gyroscope, a common...

The gyroscope is an instrument where the input is a rate of turn (angular rate). Any gyroscope is a torque-in, torque-out device. Therefore, the output of the gyro is a change in the gimbal angle (the gimbal turns) in response to the rate of turn input, due to gyroscopic precession. The input...

This applications note discusses the US Dynamics Rate Gyroscope typical of the Model 475 design. Included here shall be a brief discussion on rate gyroscope basics, operation, and uses, and a dissection of the model by major component. This applications note is primarily intended to familiarize...

This applications note discusses the input signal excitation and output signal conditioning (demodulation) requirements of the transformer type output generator, or pickoff used on the US Dynamics Miniature Rate Integrating Gyroscopes (RIG) and Rate Gyroscopes. In addition, basic transformer type...

This applications note discusses in brief, the concept of rate, in particular angular rate, as it pertains to gyroscopes and the measurement of angular velocity, or the rate-of-turn, along with how the data can be used. This applications note is primarily intended to familiarize the reader...

In early times, people discovered the spinning top, a toy with a unique ability to balance upright while rotating rapidly. Ancient Greek, Chinese and Roman societies built tops for games and entertainment. The Maori in New Zealand have used humming tops, with specially-crafted holes, in mourning...

Being able to determine a device's position and movement is becoming a standard feature in many portable systems. Systems such as cell phones and tablets use the 6-axis data from accelerometers and magnetometers to enable key functions that make consumer electronics interfaces easier and more... the main microprocessor, only a SPI bus. As an example, this application note shows a single-axis gyroscope connected to the auxiliary input of the KXPB5. The KXPB5 receives the analog output of the gyroscope and converts it to a 12-bit digital signal that can be read through SPI communication...

Inertial navigation is the process of calculating the position and velocity of a body (such as an aircraft) from self-contained accelerometers and gyroscopes. Attitude and Heading Reference Systems or better known as AHRS are 3-axis sensors that provide heading, attitude and yaw information...
