Mouser Electronics endorses a global distribution agreement with Tronics Microsystems, a TDK Group company that designs and manufactures innovative nano and microsystems, which further states that Mouser will now distribute the company’s high-performance accelerometers, gyroscopes and sensor evaluation kits. Tronics provides superior microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) sensors to the industrial, aeronautics, security, and medical markets to meet the growing demand for the increasing miniaturization of electronic devices.
The Tronics product portfolio, available from Mouser Electronics, includes the company’s GYPRO gyroscopes and AXO accelerometers, which are manufactured, packaged and calibrated at Tronics’ Crolles facility near Grenoble, France. The complementary product lines feature MEMS transducers produced using Tronics’ proprietary wafer-level packaging technology based on micro-machined thick single crystal silicon, to deliver best-in-class performance and accuracy in an ultra-compact design. The devices are calibrated and compensated for temperature effects, allowing for high-accuracy digital output over a broad temperature range.
The GYPRO product line of MEMS gyroscopes (also known as angular rate sensors) provides high-performance solutions for very demanding applications, such as precision instrumentation, platform stabilization, guidance and navigation control, attitude and heading reference system (AHRS), unmanned and autonomous vehicles, three dimensional mapping, and robotics while the AXO215 high-performance MEMS accelerometer combines size, weight, power and performance benefits on a single chip. The AXO215 accelerometer includes an embedded temperature sensor for on-chip or external temperature compensation which delivers superior acceleration-sensing performance for very demanding applications, such as precision instrumentation, unmanned vehicles, and avionics. Both the GYPRO gyroscopes and AXO accelerometers will now be available with Mouser Electronics.
Tronics also offers the GYPRO-EVB2 evaluation kit and AXO-EVB3 evaluation kit, which are specifically designed to interface with the Arduino M0 open-source electronic prototyping platform. These plug-and-play systems feature a compact design and integrate Tronics’ proprietary evaluation software to help design engineers test and develop Tronics’ standard high-performance inertial products into their own designs.
