Gladiator Technologies Offers G300D Three-Axis Gyro for Demanding Optical Image Stabilization Applications

Gladiator Technologies has introduced a three-axis, inertial rate system, the G300D gyro. With small size, low power and high speed, the G300D gyro is particularly well-suited for image stabilization applications.

The G300D is just .67 cubic inches, boasts message timing under 150 microseconds and output data rates up to 8kHz with external sync. This feature packed MEMS Gyro has an extremely low ARW of <0.0028°/sec/√Hz and an option for both 24 and 32-Bit LSB for exceptional resolution, according to the company. Users can configure the G300D to their desired configuration using a Software Development Kit or through software protocols – all designed to simplify the integration process.

“The G300D, with a 250 hertz bandwidth, allows users to replace more complicated and expensive gyros for image stabilization applications. The three-axis package is also convenient for mounting in any orientation for tight space requirements,” commented Rand Hulsing, Chief Scientist at Gladiator Technologies.

“The G300D product is a good example of our SX-series architecture, which has enabled Gladiator to extend our sensor fusion technologies into high speed applications with message latency under 150 usec,” added Lee Dunbar, Chief Software Architect at Gladiator Technologies. “This output offers minimal phase lag like an analog sensor by virtually eliminating typical signal processing and digital conversion overheads.”

The G300D gyro is non-ITAR. Further product details are available on the Gladiator Technologies website.

Spirent, WMG and Chronos Technology Collaborating to Improve Intelligent Vehicle Location Systems

The need for smart devices to have a highly accurate self-awareness of their own location, and the location of other smart devices around them is becoming increasingly important. Many devices rely on a singular location technology (typically GPS), which is one type of the wider eco system of GNSS. These systems, while becoming more capable, still suffer at times from the deployment environment, typically in urban areas where buildings and other cityscape features interfere with the signal.
