VN-100 OEM Inertial Measurement Unit and Attitude Heading Reference System (IMU/AHRS)

Item# VN-100 OEM

The VectorNav VN-100 OEM (also known as the VN-100 SMD orientation sensor) is a miniature, surface mount, high-performance inertial measurement unit (IMU) and attitude heading reference system (AHRS). The sensor incorporates 3-axis gyros, magnetic sensors, accelerometers and an optional barometric pressure sensor into a miniature surface mount package with a mass of just 43 grams.

VN-100 Surface Mount IMU/AHRS

The VN-100 OEM SMD (surface mount device) from VectorNav Technologies (also known as the VN-100 SMD orientation sensor) was the first IMU/AHRS on the market to offer calibrated, high-performance, industrial grade MEMS sensors and quality sensor fusion algorithms in a single surface mount package. The sensor incorporates 3-axis gyros, magnetic sensors, accelerometers and an optional barometric pressure sensor into a miniature surface mount package with a mass of just 43 grams.
 
In addition to providing calibrated sensor measurements, the VN-100 OEM computes and outputs real-time, drift-free 3D orientation over the complete 360 degrees of motion. The VN-100 OEM has a built-in microprocessor that runs an onboard extended Kalman filter at 2400 Hz, providing estimates of both attitude and the real-time gyro drift bias.
 
The VectorNav VN-100 OEM package is highly attractive for applications looking to deeply embed a navigation solution into the electronics design. Only a single 3.2 - 5.5 V power supply is required and communication with the VN-100 OEM is possible using either the serial 3 V TTL (UART) or the Serial Peripheral Interface (SPI).
 
The VN-100 OEM can be used in a wide variety of industrial and military applications and is well suited for size, weight, power and cost (SWAP-C) constrained applications such as UAVs and other unmanned vehicle systems, camera and platform stabilization, guided munitions, heavy machinery monitoring, robotics, primary or secondary flight navigation, flight simulation, and augmented/virtual reality platforms among others.
 
 
The VN-100 OEM is available pre-installed onto a small, common PCB for customers looking to test sensor performance, features, or software prior to implementation into their electronics. The development board provides USB and RS-232 serial communication ports as well as a 30-pin header for direct access to the pins on the surface mount device. The VN-100 Development Kit (VN-100S-DEV & VN-100T-DEV) also includes all of the necessary cabling, documentation, and software support for getting started with the VN-100.
