Adis16488 box properties

Hi

I have a question regarding the material used in adis16488 box, is the casing made of aluminium? And if I use metal screws to fix the box to pcb, do these screws affect the compass readings?

Thanks

  • Since the magnetometers in the ADIS16488xxxx are calibrated in the factory, all of the package effects are accounted for.  I would not anticipate the screws to have elevated risk, but characterizing the responses, in the specific system and environment is a prudent thing to do....but  not just because of the screws....there are lots of potential influences.  Even the power supply current/feed can impact this, so make sure to test this, in a configuration that closely reflects your final approach.  Hope that helps!
