The roots of Sensonor and its technology go back to 1965. In 1985 the Company started operating as an independent entity under the name Sensonor, until it was acquired by Infineon Technologies in 2003.
Based out of Horten, about 100 km south of Oslo in Norway, Sensonor has for more than 30 years played a significant role in the development of the global MEMS industry. Over the years, more than 250 million pressure sensors, more than 250 million accelerometers, and more than 2 million gyros have been shipped to customers for use in numerous type of applications.
The STIM series gyro modules consists of 1, 2 or 3 ultra-high accuracy ButterflyGyro in a miniature package representing a superior choice to FOGs in respect to robustness, reliability, size/weight, power-consumption and cost. The simplicity of use is high; connect power and the STIM gyro module will provide accurate measurements over the RS422 interface. An integrated 32-bit microcontroller provides flexibility in the configuration, like choice of output unit, sampling frequency, filter settings and RS422 bit-rate and protocol parameters.
Electronic axis alignment is a standard feature. For advanced users, the service mode provides access to set the configuration parameters intermediately or permanently. Features like electronic ID and advanced diagnostics with temperature measurements are available.
Inertial Measurement Units
Sensonor is introducing a range of Inertial Measurement Units with STIM300 being the first one released to the general market. The IMU is based on Sensonor's proprietary and reliable inertia technology manufactured in its own wafer fab. The IMU is based on the same gyro core used in its STIM210 gyro module first introduced in 2009.
STIM300 is today the highest performing IMU commercially available in the market in its size class, It is in certain applications found to be a good replacement of the larger and heavier fiber optic gyro FOG) based systems.
