## Sensor Comparison Tables

1. Sensor Comparison Tables
2. Definitions
3. Other lists of Inertial sensors

Note, some of the table entries below use interval notation (min,typ,Max)

Examples

(,5,10) Typical = 5, Maximum = 10

(3,5) minimum = 3, Maximum = 5

Non-interval values are typical.

Notes for the accelerometer table

The table has been roughly ordered by a dynamic range figure of merit, defined here as full-scale range divided by noise density.

The LIS2L02AQ3 and LIS344ALH have two different selectable full scale ranges. Specifications for both ranges are given is adjacent rows.

Despite note 10 in the datasheet, the bandwidth of LIS2L02AQ3 appears to be un-specified. Bandwidth has been estimated as (resonant freq.)/10.

Like the LIS2L02' the LIS3LV02DQ has two different selectable full scale ranges, and therefore is given two rows in the table.

The LIS3LV02DQ gives a resolution figure of 1 milligee @ 40 Hz for the +/-2 gee span. By simple division by the square root, the noise figure is 158 μgee as given in the table. The datasheet does not appear to give a noise density specification.

The ADXL330 and LIS344ALH are 3-axis accelerometers, but the z axis specification is markedly different from the xy axes. Therefore the xy and z specs are split into two rows in the table.

The ADIS16xxx series are standalone acquisition systems on a chip. I don't think they meet the requirements of our project.

The ADXL278 comes in variants with differing maximum gee ranges. The available ranges are +/-35, +/-50, and +/-70 gee. The +/-70 gee range is only available on a single axis, the cross axis in this case is +/-35 gee. All other ADXL278 models have symmetric sensitivities.

At least the ADXL278 series and the ADXL78 series have part codes that don't include their base numbers. For instance the +/-35gee version of the ADXL278 has the part number AD22284. This brain-deadness has been ignored in the table.

## Definitions

Part
Part Identifier
Price
Price in small quantities.
If only the volume price is known, the small quantity price is taken as twice the 1k price.
Bandwidth
Acc 3dB sensor small signal bandwidth in Hz. For sampled systems value quoted is 1/2 the sample rate.
Vsup
Normal operating voltage range.
Isup
Normally operating supply current.
Non-lin
Non-Linearity. Maximum deviation of the output from a best fit line, as a percent of full scale
Axes
Axes are independent measurement directions. The xy axes are assumed to be in the mounting plane, the z axis is perpendicular to the mounting plane.
Temperature Range
Sensor operating temperature range
GainTC
Temperature coefficient of the sensor gain factor.
Pkg
Packaging (DIP, etc.) If ambiguous, generally choose the smallest package.
Intfc
Interface. Analog (anlg) is typical. Some sensors use digital outputs.
Size
Largest dimension of part measured in any direction.
Height
Distance from mounting plane to top of part.

### Definitions For Accelerometers

Range
Maximum acceleration that can be measured by the sensor without saturation, in gees where 1 gee ≅ 9.8m/s2

Noise
White noise as an RMS value per square-root Hz. Units of micro-gee per root-Hz.
OffsetTC
Temperature coefficient of the zero acceleration bias in milligee per degree Celsius

### Definitions For Rate Gyros

Range
Maximum rotation rate that can be measured by the sensor without saturation. For some types, the range can be extended with some loss in sensitivity.

Noise
White noise as an RMS value per square-root Hz. Units of milli-degree per second per root-Hz.
OffsetTC
Temperature coefficient of the zero rotation bias in degrees per second per degree Celsius

### Definitions For Pressure Sensors

Range
Maximum pressure range over which the sensor is guaranteed to be (fairly) linear. For some types, the range can be extended with minor increase in non-linearity.

Resolution
Minimum resolvable pressure change. Noise floor, or 1 LSB, whichever is greater.
(ΔP vs T)
Indicated Pressure change over Temperature range
Maximum deviation in output at constant pressure over full operating temperature range.
(ΔP vs P)
Indicated Pressure change over Pressure range
Maximum deviation in output at constant temperature over full operating pressure range.
