The MTi 1-series module is a full-featured, self-contained AHRS, VRU and IMU on a 12.1 x 12.1 mm PCB. The MTi 1-series is an excellent choice for use in high-volume applications that require robustness from the latest miniature MEMS technology.
The MTi 1-series module is a full-featured 3D Attitude and Heading Reference System (AHRS), Vertical Reference Unit (VRU) and Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU). The PCB features the proven XKF3TM sensor fusion algorithm on-board and will incorporate the latest inertial MEMS technology, while keeping the software and hardware interface the same. This makes it ideal for users who want to benefit from the advances in MEMS technology, but cannot or do not want to invest in costly development, if a component is no longer available.
|Roll/pitch||Static (RMS)||0.5 deg|
|Dynamic (RMS)||0.8 deg|
|Yaw (heading)||Static/dynamic (RMS),|
Magnetic field referenced (RMS)
|VRU_general filter profile (unreferenced yaw), with Active Heading Stabilization (AHS)||<1 deg after 60 minutes|
The MTi is available as an AHRS, VRU and IMU.
|Product Output||MTi-1 IMU||MTi-2 VRU||MTi-3 AHRS|
The XKF3TM sensor fusion algorithm running on-board is fully configurable, limiting the load on the application processor.
The module PCB is compatible with the JEDEC PLCC-28 standard offering full flexibility in mounting the MTi 1-series module.
The Development Kit with the extensive MT Software Suite allows system integrators and evaluators to start development within minutes.
The MT Software Suite gives easy access to Xsens’ products. The suite contains a specially developed and easy-to-use graphical user interface, as well as drivers for various operating systems and many other useful tools, example source code and documentation.
Although it is easy to set up the MTi via the low-level XBus protocol, communication is made easy with the Xsens Device API (XDA) which is completely in C-code.
The Firmware of all our MTi products can be downloaded on the Download MTi firmware.
In order to test MT Software Suite we’ve made some test data available from various applications.
