Frequency Response Analysis for Inertial MEMS in Stabilization Systems
June 04, 2012 // By Mark Looney, iSensor Application Engineer, ADI // 0 commentsDownload White Paper 547Ko
UAV-mounted surveillance equipment, maritime microwave receivers, and vehicle-mounted infrared imaging sensors are examples of instrumentation that require stable platforms for best performance, but are often used in applications that experience vibration and other, undesirable motion.
Vibration and normal movement (cars, boats, planes, etc) causes communication loss, blurry images and many other behaviors that degrade the instrument's performance and ability to provide a valuable function. Platform stabilization systems employ closed-loop control systems to actively cancel this type of motion, in order to preserve critical mission-critical performance and objectives for these instruments.

This month, Future Electronics has 20 of Intersil's ISL8203MEVAL2Z evaluation boards to give away to EETimes Europe's readers. Worth 95 US dollars, the board was designed to demonstrate the performance of the ISL8203M dual step-down power module which integrates a PWM controller, synchronous switching MOSFETs, inductors, and passives all in a 9.0x6.5x1.83mm package.
The ISL8203M is rated for dual 3A output current or 6A current sharing operation with an input range of 2.85V to 6V. Each of the two channels employs the current mode pulse width modulation scheme for fast transient response and pulse-by-pulse current limiting.MORE INFO AND LAST MONTH' WINNERS...
