Smyrna, Ga. - Murata introduced the SCC2000 series of integrated accelerometer and gyroscope sensor devices aimed at harsh environments, such as automotive and industrial applications. The device consists of a low-g 3-axis accelerometer with two angular rate sensor options of either X or Z-axis detection combined with a -32 bit digital SPI interface. The high stability series offers best-in-class temperature dependency, shock sensitivity and bias stability characteristics.
The SCC2000 sensor also has a software selectable 10- or 60-Hz low pass filter that can be configured via SPI. Gyro range is +/- 125 degrees per second with sensitivity of 50 LSB per degree per second. Typical accelerometer offset temperature drift is +/- 6 mg for the 2g sensor and +/-12mg for the 6g version. Gyroscope offset temperature drift is typically in the range +/-0.5°/s for the 125°/s X & Z -axis product versions. The gyroscope has a typical offset short-term bias stability of 1°/h for the 125°/s X-axis device and 2°/h for the 125°/s Z-axis product. A combined sensor with a gyro having a range of up to 300 degrees per second is also available on customer request, said Murata.
The SCC2000 devices are available in a 24-pin pre-molded plastic RoHS compliant SOIC housing (15.00 mm x 8.50 mm x 4.35 mm) suitable for SMD placement. The combined sensor is compliant with the internationally recognized ISO26262 automotive software safety standard and the AEC-Q100 stress test qualification requirements. The devices can be used in both active and passive safety designs in automotive applications such as hill start assistance (HSA), active steering, and adaptive cruise control for advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS).
The SCC2000 series is also suitable for the most demanding environments such as agricultural, construction, and other heavy machinery applications.
Availability: Samples of the SCC2000 series are available through Murata authorized distributors with an approximate lead time of eight weeks.
