Selecting Yaw Rate Gyros

I have a need to measure yaw rate down to 1°/s min or preferably better. I have
been looking at your products and something like the ADIS16080 is attractive.

I have not used anything like this before and do not consider myself able to
interpret the datasheet adequately although I don't think this device will have
the precision I am looking for.

Does ADI have a product that will meet this need?


There are typically more details than this, which can be difference-making (Is
it for only one axis, over what conditions, what type of application). Assuming
that is the case, I would probably go with the ADIS16265, since it provides
much better bias/sensitivity performance over temperature (preserve core 1
deg/min) and use the ADIS16334 as your 3-axis option.
