Gladiator Technologies has launched the GA50, a new ultra-miniature open-loop single-axis accelerometer that integrates a silicon MEMS device with an ASIC, analog front end and temperature sensor.

Gladiator Technologies GA50 MEMS single-axis accelerometer

Assembled within a hermetically-sealed LCC20 surface-mount package with a footprint of 8.9 x 8.9 mm, it is Gladiator’s smallest MEMs device to date.

The compact and low-power device offers excellent long-term bias repeatability and navigation-grade short-term stability and noise. It is available in three different sensing ranges – ±5, ±40 and ±70 g – to suit a wide range of requirements.

The GA50 is ideal for a wide range of UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle) and robotics applications, such as incorporation into IMUs (inertial measurement units). It can be provided standalone, or mounted on an evaluation board to provide designers and systems integrators with a convenient method for testing and verification.
