NavChip™ Precision 6-Axis MEMS Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU)

Thales Visionix's high precision IMU for use in applications where small size, low cost, and low power consumption are required

Image of Thales Visionix's NavChip Precision 6-Axis MEMS Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU)Using Thales Visionix's proprietary MEMS technologies and advanced signal processing techniques, the NavChip achieves a level of performance, miniaturization, and environmental ruggedness superior to other IMUs of its size. The NavChip is especially well-suited for embedded applications where extremely small size, low cost, and low power consumption are required. It is fully factory calibrated and temperature compensated over an operating range of -40°C to +85°C. NavChip evaluation kits are available to help users get applications up and running quickly.
