ADIS1646X EVALUATION ON THE EVAL-ADIS

OVERVIEW

The ADIS16460 iSensor® device is a complete inertial system that includes a triaxial gyroscope and a triaxial accelerometer. Each sensor in the ADIS16460 combines industry-leading iMEMS® technology with signal conditioning that optimizes dynamic performance. The factory calibration characterizes each sensor for sensitivity, bias and alignment. As a result, each sensor has its own dynamic compensation formulas that provide accurate sensor measurements.

The ADIS1646x is a low-profile, compact IMU that uses a serial peripheral interface (SPI) for data communications. This interface enables direct connection with a large variety of embedded processor products. This electrical connection typically only requires 5 I/O lines for synchronous data collection, as shown in the following figure:

ADIS1646x/PCB BREAKOUT BOARD

For those who are on a tight timeline, connecting the ADIS16460 to an embedded controller will provide the most flexibility in developing application firmware and will more closely reflect the final system design. The ADIS16IMU3/PCBZ is the breakout board for the ADIS16460 and may provide assistance in the process of hooking it up to an existing embedded processor system.

EVAL-ADIS: PC EVALUATION

For those who would prefer to perform PC-based evaluation of the ADIS1646x products, before developing their own embedded system, the EVAL-ADIS is the appropriate system to use. The remainder of this Wiki site will focus on PC-based evaluation with the EVAL-ADIS system. Here is a list of equipment required for this:

EVAL-ADISZ

ADIS16460AMLZ

ADIS16IMU3/PCBZ

SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS

Windows XP, Vista, 7

.NET Framework 3.5

Newer versions of the .NET framework do not currently support the IMU Evaluation software package.

PHYSICAL SETUP

The EVAL-ADIS includes a bag of M2x0.4mm machine screws, which includes a variety of different lengths for securing the MEMS IMU product family of parts to the Evaluation board. This guide will focus on ADIS16460.

Do not plug the EVAL-ADIS into the USB cable at this stage of the setup. Wait until the software installation is complete.

Step #1

Place the ADIS16460 device on the imu3 board and slide it up to the connector and align the pins and carefully insert the part into the connector. Secure the ADIS16460 to the ADIS16IMU3/PCBZ interface board using the M2 X.4 X 16mm screws and use the included M2X .4mm hex nut on the other side (washers are optional).

This is the bottom view showing the M2 x .4mm hex nuts and the spacer needs to be placed on the board as shown below for mounting to the EVAL-ADIS board.

Step #2

Once the alignment with J4 is correct, gently press the top of the ADIS16460 unit down, so that its connector presses into J4. When the connector is fully seated, the ADIS16460 will rest on the provided spacer and sit level on the EVAL-ADIS board surface. The following pictures provide a reference of how this setup will look when the ADIS1646AMLZ has correct alignment with the mating connector on the EVAL-ADIS.

This picture provides an example of the an incorrect connector alignment. Take care to avoid this type of connection error, because it can cause the the ADIS1648xxMLZ to experience harmful conditions. Notice the entire row of gold pins that are outside of the mating connector.

Step #3

Select the mounting screws. The EVAL-ADIS includes a bag of M2x0.4mm machine screws, which include 4 pieces that are in lengths of 16mm and 20mm. Using the 16mm version will only allow for 2mm of penetration into the EVAL-ADIS mouting holes, while the 20mm screws will result in the screws sticking out of the bottom side of the EVAL-ADIS, when fully-secured.

Step #4

Use a screwdriver to secure all four screws into the appropriate “F” mounting holes. Note that difficulty in getting the screws to penetrate the pre-tapped holes can be an indicator of connector misalignment.

Step #5

Set JP1 (EVAL-ADIS) to “+3.3V.”

IMU EVALUATION SOFTWARE OVERVIEW

The EVAL-ADIS2 has been superseded by the EVAL-ADIS-FX3 and is no longer supported.
This guide assumes that you've connected your vibration sensor to the EVAL-ADIS2, drivers were successfully installed on your PC, and you've downloaded the correct software for your sensor. We recommend reviewing the Hardware User Guide before continuing.

EVAL-ADIS2 IMU Evaluation Software Overview

The IMU Evaluation Software is a Microsoft Windows (.NET) application that works in conjunction with the EVAL-ADIS2, in order to provide users with a PC-Based interface to most ADIS16xxx products. This platform enables observation of basic sensor functions, read/write access to all user-accessible registers, and full-rate data acquisition, which is synchronous with data production of each ADIS16xxx.

This guide builds upon the EVAL-ADIS2 Hardware User Guide and assumes that you've installed the necessary drivers and software.

Using the EVAL-ADIS2 IMU Evaluation Software

Main Window

Once the IMU Evaluation software loads, you should be presented with a window similar to the image shown below.

The image below has been color-coded to illustrate the different parts of the IMU Evaluation Software. These colored sections will be referred to in the following sections.

The drop-down menus highlighted in orange list additional features and utilities that make up the core functionality of the evaluation software.

- The Devices menu provides a list of supported products. Selecting a product from this list will configure the IMU evaluation software register map. Each device has a unique register map that must be selected to ensure proper sensor operation. The green box shows the active device. In this example, the ADIS16448 is selected.

- The Register Access option calls a sub-menu that lists all user-configurable registers available from the part number selected in the “Devices” drop-down menu. It also provides read/write access to each register.

- The Data Capture option calls a sub-menu designed to enable synchronous data logging from the selected device.

- The Demos option calls a 3-D visualization tool. This feature is only supported for the ADIS16480 and ADIS16448 devices.

- The Tools option calls a sub-menu that displays USB diagnostic information.

- The About option provides more detailed software revision information.

The purple box shows the primary, inertial output registers for the selected device. These values are updated in real-time after pressing the Read button (identified by a red box).

The yellow box shows three waveform recorder windows. Each window allows for plotting the three primary sensor types (gyroscopes, accelerometers, and magnetometers [if supported]). The top subplot displays gyroscope data, the middle plot displays accelerometer data and the bottom plot displays magnetometer data. Each plot color corresponds to the colors displayed in the “Output Registers” window (highlighted in purple).

Register Access

The Register Access window provides read and write access to all user-accessible registers listed in the selected device's datasheet. The image below shows a screenshot of the window.

The color-coded image below is referenced in the following section.

The purple box sorts each set of registers into a standard category. The available categories are:

- Control/Status - General sensor configuration, alarm, and metadata registers

- Output - Inertial sensor output registers

- Calibration - User offset and misc. calibration registers

The calibration register section mentioned above is separate from the factory calibration registers and procedures!

The section highlighted by the red box lists all of the registers in the selected category. Click on the register name to select a register for individual read/write access.

The green box identifies the read/write control options for the current register selection.

Registers must be written in hexadecimal format!

The Update Registers in Category button (shown in an orange box above) automatically reads all of the registers shown in the selected category (red box) and updates their contents in the GUI.

The section highlighted in yellow identifies provides a means of easily calling subroutines within the connected sensor. Clicking on a button is equivalent to writing a single-bit command to the respective register.

The Save Reg Settings to File programmatically reads and saves the contents of all of the registers in the current category into a *.csv (common-delimited) file. The Load Reg Settings from File button reads a target .csv file and attempts to write the saved values back into the sensor.

The Register Access form always writes to both the upper and lower bytes of a given register. When writing to a register, make sure to include the desired 16-bit value in hexadecimal format before clicking the Write Register button.
Data Capture

The Data Capture window only supports synchronous data acquisition and logging to a file on the host PC. Data samples are only read from the sensor when the data ready pin toggles, indicating that data is valid.

The color-coded image below is referenced in the following section.

The section highlighted in red lists all of the registers that are eligible for data capture. Checking the box next to each register indicates that the specified register values should be recorded once the data stream begins.

The section highlighted in green allows for customizing the file name and location of the resultant .csv files.

The section highlighted in yellow identifies the data stream configuration options.

- Record Length - The total number of samples to be captured. A sample is defined as a single “data valid” period as signaled by the data ready pin on the sensor

- Sample Rate - The instantaneous data ready rate as measured by the evaluation board

- Capture Time - The estimated data capture time in DD:HH:MM:SS format calculated based upon the instantaneous sample rate

- Add File Header - Selects whether a header displaying the contents of each column should be appended to the beginning of the .csv file

- Use Scaled Data - Signals to the software to convert the 16-bit values read from the sensor into a sign-adjusted (two's complement) scaled number. For example, when this option is enabled, be in units of degrees/second
