On Jan. 4, TDK Corporation announced the addition of the IIM-42653 and IIM-42652-I platforms to its InvenSense SmartIndustrial family of compact and low-power sensor platforms. IIM-42653 and IIM-42652-I consist of 6-axis IMUs, which target industrial and navigation applications requiring high force sensitive resistor (FSR) performance or inertial navigation software.

The IIM-42653 platform—a robust, low-noise, low-power, 6-axis IMU—is capable of a gyro-programmable output of 4,000 dps and an accelerometer-programmable output of 32 g. These features make IIM-42653 ideal for applications including industrial-grade or high-end automated guided vehicles, automated mobile robots and unmanned aerial vehicles.

The IIM-42652-I platform, a compact 6-axis IMU, offers hardware authentication and can be integrated with TRACK dead reckoning software from Trusted Positioning, a TDK Group company. The TRACK software, which is available for purchase through a licensing agreement, filters GNSS multi-path errors and provides a continuous navigation solution when GNSS signals are unavailable.

IIM-42653 is available now for select partners and customers only and will be available at TDK distribution partners in April. IIM-42652-I is available now at InvenSense-authorized distributors.
