The ADIS16488 is a Micro Electromechanical System (MEMS) Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) from Analog Devices. It features low noise gyros and accelerometers in a rugged, environmentally sealed enclosure. The ADIS16488 enables precision measurements for applications that require low cost, high performance, and rugged durability.

At 71 x 46 x 11 millimeters, the OEM-ADIS-16488 features low noise gyros and accelerometers in a small, lightweight form factor. The custom device is designed to be paired with a NovAtel OEM6 receiver card to provide continuously available position, velocity, and attitude (roll, pitch, yaw).

SPAN tightly couples NovAtel’s precise GNSS technology with highly accurate inertial measurement technology to provide robust, stable, and continuous 3D navigation. Tight coupling of the two technologies enables continuous robust positioning in difficult environments.
