What do I need to do, in order to connect the ADIS16460 to an embedded processor?



There are two parts to this process:

  1. electrical connection
  2. firmware


The electrical connection has several parts:

  1. Power supply, per the following recommendations (ADIS16460 Datasheet, page 24)
  2. Serial peripheral interface (SPI) lines (ADIS16460 Datasheet, page 10)


  3. Optional I/O: data-ready, input clock, reset


The ADIS16IMU4/PCBZ breakout board may help speed the process of electrical connection up:

For the firmware, check this link out for a reference project, which was generously offered by one of our test engineers:

Good luck with this!

We look forward to your posts!
