InterSense Taking Orders for Miniature IMU Chip for Navigation and Stabilization

InterSense is taking orders for a new NavChip OEM Developer’s Kit that includes a pre-release engineering sample of a miniature commercial inertial measurement unit (IMU) on a surface-mount chip.

The offer is open to qualified OEM partners for a limited number of kits to be delivered this month. Initial production is planned for early 2010, with fully-qualified NavChips available in the second quarter.

The penny-sized NavChip will enable advanced inertial navigation applications, including GPS/INS integration, on small unmanned vehicles such as UAVs and robots. It will also allow the miniaturization of camera and antenna stabilization systems in fixed and mobile applications.

These capabilities were previously limited to large-scale military vehicles.
