Need a correct documentation on ADIS16475-1/PCBZ breakout board - with ALL dimensions, hole diameters, IMU exact positioning etc. The PCB Gerber file(s) should suffice. Also requesting the exact and thorough dimensioning info for ADIS1646x IMU to be added to the data sheet because the current data sheet does not even contain the IMU Y dimension.
Thank you for your post.
With respect to the ADIS16475-1/PCBZ, the following diagram illustrates the PCB dimensions and hole locations.
This does not offer a location reference for the IMU, with respect to one of the PCB attributes, as this is the first that that this has been requested. I will submit a request to our CAD team for this attribute. If they are not able to support this in the next few days, I will find the gerber files and post them for you. Will that work OK?
With respect to the second request, can you start a new discussion to ask for this information (ADIS1646x dimensions). When you do this, can you identify which attribute is missing from the current package drawing? I am not sure that I understand what you are asking for, but will be glad to help, once I understand.
Thank you for your reply.
Yes, the Gerbers will be just fine. Regarding the ADIS16465 dimensions, I found their 3D model files and got the missing figures from these. Nevertheless, more thorough module drawing dimensioning would be always welcome in the datasheet(s).
Thank you for Gerbers, they help a whole lot.
I have drawn in red color the dimensions missing in the ADIS1646x datasheet:
Thank you! The width dimension was in place at one time, but I think that I know how this might have happened. I will get that fixed in a revision that we are already working on. With respect to "sensor center" position, the product does come with a "point of percussion" alignment, which aligns the accelerometer origin to one corner. If there are other opportunities for this to impact an application, we are always eager to learn and do what we can to help. Thanks again!
Just confirming what I suspected. I think that this designation intends to cover the dimension that you identify. Having said that, it looks like this might have confused at least one other, so I am going to ask if we can support addition this dimension, as a separate attribute. Again, many thanks for your thoughtful feedback.
Thanks again, I missed the entire "point of percussion" stuff. As of the width dimension - the one you pointed to is normally used when an object is symmetrical along both X and Y axes which is not the case for the ADIS1646x (edit, the ADIS1647x was mistakenly stated).
The ADIS16475 actually contains both dimensions, but assuming you are referring to the ADIS16465, that package actually started as a square package, but was later modified to include the hole enclosure. Unfortunately, we didn't give this dimension enough thought when we introduced the new drawing. With all of that in mind, we agree with your feedback and thank you for taking the time to offer such helpful feedback! Look forward to hearing about your progress and any other needs that you have, in new discussion threads, in the future! We appreciate your business and feedback. Good luck on the rest of your project!
Thank you Mark. Of course I meant the ADIS1646x - now have edited my posting above to clarify this.
