The Yost Labs 3-Space Sensor™ Nano IC is an super-miniature, 24-Pin DFN IC and AHRS with high-precision, high-reliability, low-cost, and extremely low power consumption. The Nano is a DFN 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 IC is pre-programmed DFN 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 development sensor, or can be purchased individually as the DFN IC. There is also a development (evaluation) kit available.
