PinPoint® is a single-axis MEMS angular rate sensor (gyro) capable of measuring angular velocity up to a maximum of ±1,000º/s which has two output modes; an analogue voltage signal which is linearly proportional to angular speed, and a digital signal in SPI® protocol. The choice of output mode; analogue or digital, is determined by the user when connecting it to the user’s host PCBA
PinPoint® is available in several configurations;
a) CRM100 which measures angular velocity about an axis perpendicular to the plane of the host PCBA, referred to as ‘in-plane’ sensing,
b) CRM200 which measures angular velocity about an axis which is parallel to the plane of the host PCBA, referred to as ‘orthogonal’ sensing and
c) CRM102 and CRM202which are capable of measuring angular velocities inexcess of ±2700º/s.
