The MTi 1-series is a full-featured GNSS/INS, AHRS, VRU, and IMU with GNSS receiver support 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 GNSS/INS with GNSS receiver support, 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.
With its miniature SMD form factor (12.1×12.1mm) and low power consumption it is ideal for low level integration in upcoming technologies including drones, UAV’s, smart farming, unmanned control, Internet of (Moving) Things and robotics.

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 MTi-7 GNSS/INS module is a miniature motion tracking module with multiple GNSS receiver support. The receiver support platform is built modular to support the existing GNSS infrastructure from your application. Please let us know about your application and find out how the GNSS receiver of your choice can be integrated with the MTi-7 GNSS/INS.
The MTi-7 GNSS Receiver platform is structured to support multiple receivers, receivers that are not yet supported can be added if you supply us with your application information
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.
