China alternative ADIS16488BMLZ –
High-Performance Inertial Measurement Unit

Different from quartz accelerometer and fiber optic gyroscope composed of IMU/INS, IMU16488 Inertial Measurement Unit is a high-performance tactical grade MEMS Inertial Measurement Unit, it is composed of 2°/h (Allan) bias stability MEMS gyroscope and 0.1mg (Allan) bias stability MEMS accelerometer, which can output precise 3-axis outputs of angular rate, 3 axis acceleration data, 3 axis magnetometer data, and barometer data, etc. 

IMU16488 IMU adopts the latest capacitive technology and advanced MEMS components, which reduces the cost deeply. The system enjoys small size and lightweight, it features Mil-Standard reliability and is housed in an ultra-durable and compact aluminum housing.

The IMU16488 is packaged in a module that is approximately 47mm × 44mm × 14mm and includes a standard connector interface, totally the same size as the original ADIS16488BMLZ.

What steps we did to prove it replace the original ADIS16488BMLZ directly?

1-Technical specification

2-PIN Definition

3-Dimension & Package

4-Coordinate System Definition

5-Communication Protocol – SPI

6-Communication Protocol – UART

7-Evaluation Board for further confirmation

Fully match ADI’s EVAL-ADIS evaluation board 

The evaluation board can collect the raw data of IMU16488, and the supported operating systems include Win10 and Win7. For details, please refer to “EVAL-ADIS User Guides.pdf”. The main steps are as follows:

1) Install Evaluation Board Driver SDPDrivers_2.exe;

2) Install the IMU16488 on the evaluation board;

3) The power jumper on the evaluation board is selected to be 3.3V;

4) Connect the evaluation board and the computer with USB, LED2 lights first, indicating that the evaluation board is powered normally, and LED1 lights up after about 5~10s, indicating that the USB port of the evaluation board is successfully connected to the PC;

5) Open the evaluation board test software IMU_Evaluation.exe

6) Select ADIS16488B in the Devices.

7) Click on the Read to read the data and display it on the interface.
