The Yost Labs 3-Space Sensor™ Nano Carrier Board is a development board for the 3-Space Sensor™ Nano which is a super-miniature, 24-Pin DFN IC and AHRS with high-precision, high-reliability, low-cost, and extremely low power consumption. The Nano is an SMT Attitude and Heading Reference System (AHRS) / Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) which uses triaxial gyroscope, accelerometer, and compass sensors in conjunction with advanced processing and on-board quaternion-based orientation filtering algorithms to determine orientation relative to an absolute reference in real-time.

The 3-Space Sensor™ Nano Carrier Board is pre-programmed IC / AHRS chipset with our QGRAD2™ filter that can be installed into the likes of any product. However the Nano is available as a pre-packaged carrier / development sensor, or can be purchased individually as the IC / AHRS chipset.

Includes: 1 x Nano IC installed on 1 x Nano Carrier Board

Key Features

The Yost Labs 3-Space Sensor™ Nano Carrier Board is a highly flexible, low-cost, high-performance AHRS / IMU inertial motion sensor package that is perfect for a wide variety of projects requiring a reliable orientation sensing solution.

    • Ultra-small high-performance AHRS at 16mm x 15mm x 1.7mm and 0.9 grams
    • Open Source API Available
    • Fast sensor update and filter rate allow use in real-time applications, including stabilization, virtual reality, pedestrian tracking, real-time immersive simulation, and robotics
    • Advanced on-board magnetometer auto-calibration allows the sensor to quickly adapt to changing magnetic environments.
    • Highly customizable orientation sensing with options such as tunable filtering, oversampling, and orientation error correction
    • Advanced integrated QGRAD2 filtering allows sensor orientation outputs at up to 200Hz while automatically reducing the effects of sensor noise and sensor error
    • Robust open protocol allows commands to be sent in human readable form, or more quickly in machine readable form
    • Orientation output format available in absolute or relative terms in multiple formats (quaternion, rotation matrix, axis angle, two-vector)
    • Absolute or custom reference axes
    • Access to raw sensor data
    • Embedded pedestrian tracking
    • Flexible communication options: SPI, I2C, USB 2.0*, or asynchronous serial USB communication through a virtual COM port
    • Castellated SMT edge pads provide secure SMT mounting and allow optional through-hole mounting
    • Upgradeable firmware
    • Programmable interrupt capability
