Small Form Factor
SMD and Rugged Packages
The VN-100 is available in two different packaging options: the surface mount device (SMD) and the “Rugged” module.
Introduced in 2009, the VN-100 was the first Attitude and Heading Reference System (AHRS) on the market to offer calibrated, high-performance, industrial grade MEMS sensors and quality sensor fusion algorithms in a single surface mount package. At the size of a postage stamp, the VN-100 SMD requires only a single 3.2-5.5V power supply, and can be directly embedded into a user’s electronics. Interface with the VN-100 SMD is made easy by using either the serial 3V TTL (UART) or the Serial Peripheral Interface (SPI).
Size: 24 x 22 x 3 mm
Power: 45 mA @ 3.3 V
Mass: 3.5 g
The VN-100 Rugged is the “plug and play” version of the VN-100 SMD. Enclosed in a clamshell precision anodized aluminum enclosure, the VN-100 Rugged offers additional protection of the internal MEMs sensors and electronics. The use of precision CNC milled aluminum parts ensures that the axis alignment provided by our factory calibration process is maintained during installation in its final configuration. Interfacing with the module is made through a locking 10-pin connector.
Size: 36 x 33 x 9 mm
