When designing a motion control system that uses a gyroscope as it feedback sensing element, understanding the system's dependence on the gyroscope's noise behaviors has a number of rewards. Most notably, these insights can help system architects establish application-relevant performance requirements, which will help them focus early evaluation efforts and resources on the most appropriate class of device. While we all want our designs to be as small and as inexpensive as possible, they also need to perform appropriately, through all relevant environmental conditions.
A wise man once offered that "a problem that has been well defined, is already half-solved." With that thought process in mind, we present, Designing for Low-Noise Feedback Control with MEMS Gyroscopes, which describes some of the key attributes of noise in MEMS Gyroscopes, while describing how they impact a simplified application that tightens a camera's pointing angle error from red to green (see below). I hope that this helps you and I look forward to your comments! Thank you for visiting our blog and for checking out the latest issue of Analog Dialogue.
