OpenIMU300RI Eval Kit¶
The OpenIMU300RI evaluation kit includes:
- A robust and easy-to-use test fixture.
- An OpenIMU300RI IMU module attached to the test fixture with JTAG (SWD) 20-pin connector.
- An ST-LINK J-TAG debugger, a debugger cable, and a USB cable.
- A multiple-connector cable for RS232/CAN/Power connection.
OpenIMU300RI Evaluation Kit Introduction
The OpenIMU evaluation kit is a hardware platform used to evaluate the OpenIMU300RI inertial navigation system and develop various applications based on this platform. It is supported by the Aceinna Navigation Studio, which provides easy access to the features of the OpenIMU300RI and explains how to integrate the device in a custom design. The Components section below provides the contents of the kit.
An external DC power supply is required. The power supply must be able to provide 400mA at 4.9VDC to 32VDC.
