Gladiator Technologies Upgrades Inertial Product Line with VELOX™ High Speed Processing

High Speed Outputs Expand MEMS Options for Inertial Measurement Units, INS/GPS and Gyroscopes.

SNOQUALMIE, WA

APRIL 25, 2019

 

With output speeds reaching 10 kHz and message timing as low as 185μsec, Gladiator Technologies’ MEMS IMUs withVELOX™ Processing are the clear choice for inertial engineers requiring high performance at an affordable price.

 

VELOX™ Processing technology employs advanced rapid sampling and signal processing techniques to output data at high speed with minimal phase lag. VELOX™ enables system designers to replace legacy analog Inertial Systems and Rate Sensors with affordable, high speed digital inertial systems and sensors.

 

“VELOX™ Processing encompasses our unique high speed, low latency technology and creates technical advantages for system designers, especially those focused on stabilization,” commented Eric Yates, Business Development Manager at Gladiator Technologies.

 

All Gladiator Technologies SX Series digital IMUs, Gyroscopes and INS/GPS products incorporate VELOX™ Processing with a range of high-speed outputs depending on the model selected. Because high output speeds require external sync inputs for system coordination, the SX Series product design includes dedicated external sync connector pins and product firmware which allows customers to select the output speed and baud rate best suited to the application.
  • Data Outputs up to 10 kHz
  • Message Timing as low as 185µsec
  • Minimal Phase Lag
  • Up to 6 Mbaud 
  • Up to 350 Hz Bandwidth
“Customer interest in high speed output and near analog response encouraged us to consider non-traditional processing methods,” stated Lee Dunbar, Gladiator Technologies’ Chief Software Architect and holder of 11 patents. “The result of this effort is VELOX™ Processing for applications requiring real-time, high resolution inertial data.”
Gladiator Technologies will be exhibiting at AUVSI Xponential in Chicago, April 29-May 2 and Sea-Air-Space in National Harbor May 6-8.  IMU, INS/GPS, and sensor product details are available on the Gladiator Technologies website,http://www.gladiatortechnologies.com/products. Sales and technical inquiries may be made through the contact page on the websitehttp://www.gladiatortechnologies.com/contact or through one of the international support representatives also listed on the site athttp://www.gladiatortechnologies.com/international-customers.
