Have you noticed any issues in the ADIS16IMU4/PCBZ, which will require my attention?



In the original layout of the ADIS16IMU4/PCB, one of the traces is close enough for mounting hardware to short it to ground, if the solder mask is damaged.  Please see the first picture below to see a graphic that illustrates the weak point under consideration.  For the short term, we recommend using a non-conductive washer (not included in kits, but commonly available in most hardware stores) in this location, in order to isolate the weak point from conductive hardware. We do not plan to purge present stock for this matter, but we do plan to build all new material with an updated design, which will have "GS10628rB" on its silk screen, in the location that presently has "GS10628rA."  Please see the second picture below to locate this silkscreen text.




We apologize for the inconvenience.  Please let us know if there is anything we can do to help.
