 Press Releases

  • SAN JOSE, CA – May 2, 2016 – Epson, the world’s leading manufacturer of Quartz MEMS inertial sensors, has released two new inertial measurement units (IMUs), the G364 and G354.  Building upon Epson’s high-precision QMEMS sensor architecture, these new products offer improved stability and shock/vibration resistance, enabling a new level of precision in demanding environments.  These new products will be shown for the first time publicly at AUVSI’s Xponential 2016, the world's largest international exposition of unmanned systems to be held from May 2nd – 5th in New Orleans, LA, USA.

    These new IMUs have three axes of gyroscopes and accelerometers, plus provide built-in support for two widely-used industrial interfaces: SPI and UART protocol.  At just 24x24x10mm in size, these next-generation units offer 2.2 & 3.0 degree per hour gyro bias stability (G364 and G354, respectively).  Sampling and volume production of the products will commence in in May 2016.

    Leveraging their success with industrial markets, Epson has focused R&D efforts on building IMU products that tout excellent stability and resolution while implemented in challenging environments.  Applications for the new G364 and G354 IMUs include construction machine control, precision agriculture auto-steering and unmanned vehicle guidance – all of which introduce high levels of vibration and shock that traditionally hinders MEMS IMU performance.  Epson is able to offer enhanced vibration and shock rejection thanks to a completely-redesigned metal housing and internal architecture that isolates the inertial sensors while also facilitating top/bottom mounting via a high-reliability connector for easy integration.

    Enhanced components inside the G364 and G354 IMUs deliver increased long-term reliability, an expanded operating temperature range, improved sensor stability and resolution, plus a 40% reduction in power consumption.  Seeking to facilitate deeper levels of integration into GPS-INS applications, Epson has also added new software features including delta angle/delta velocity output and an expanded selection of output data rates.

    “The G364 and G354 IMUs demonstrate Epson’s cutting-edge MEMS IMU technology, delivering industry-leading performance in increasingly demanding environments,” says David Gaber, Senior Product Marketing Manager at Epson Electronics America.  “As our customers continue to push the limits of their technologies, we stand behind them with robust IMU products to meet their challenges with legendary Japanese quality.”

    Upcoming Trade Shows

    Epson will exhibit and demonstrate its latest IMUs at AUVSI's Xponential 2016, the world's largest unmanned systems and robots symposium and exhibition.

    Date and place: May 2-5 at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans, LA.

    Epson booth number: 941

  • SAN JOSE, CA – May 2, 2016 – Epson, the leading manufacturer of Quartz MEMS inertial sensors, has released a new accelerometer product, the A351.  Targeting industrial applications such as seismic monitoring, survey and equipment instrumentation, Epson designed the A351 for rapid integration into existing systems requiring acceleration sensing.  The product will be shown for the first time publicly at AUVSI’s Xponential 2016, the world's largest international exposition of unmanned systems to be held from May 2nd – 5th in New Orleans, LA, USA.

    Leveraging success in seismic and industrial sensing markets with the current A350 product, the A351 offers lower noise, higher resolution, enhanced non-linearity and excellent long-term stability – four critical parameters for the seismic and survey markets.  The A351 also incorporates several enhancements that make it suitable for use in more dynamic applications such as unmanned vehicle guidance, including higher data output rates, increased sensor bandwidth and selectable per-axis output format flexibility.

    Capable of functioning as a traditional tri-axis accelerometer for detecting vibration and linear acceleration, or as an inclinometer for sensing inclination in three-axes, the A351enables measurement bandwidths of up to 100Hz with a data output rate of up to 1 KHz.  Specifically addressing the needs of seismic and industrial sensing customers, the A351 facilitates the elimination of costly components such as high-resolution A-D converters, plus saves engineering resources spent on wiring and noise reduction challenges. 

    “The A351 is a versatile accelerometer product that delivers high performance whether installed in downhole drills or high-altitude unmanned aircraft,” says David Gaber, Senior Product Marketing Manager at Epson Electronics America.  “With the inherent stability and high-resolution of Epson’s Quartz MEMS accelerometer technology, the A351 is the most accurate compact accelerometer available today.”
