Newark Element 14 expands MEMS portfolio with Tronics

17 January 2019

Newark Element14 is stocking the full range of microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) gyroscopes from Tronics Microsystems, a division of TDK Corp., expanding its portfolio of devices for professionals, makers and entrepreneurs.

The closed-loop Gypro series is used for applications such as precision navigation, motion tracking and control and optical stabilization. The devices — which offer size, weight, power and price benefits — are ideal for manufacturers transitioning to MEMS.

The Gypro series includes MEMS gyros that have either low-noise or are tailored for motion tracking or can be used in harsh environments. The built-in, closed-loop electronics allow for linearity, increased signal-to-noise ratio and improved vibration, shock and temperature environments.

Newark Element14, a division of Avnet Inc., also offers evaluation kits for the Gypro series designed to interface with the Arduino YUN open-source electronic prototyping platform. These systems offer a compact design and integrate the Tronics' software to help design engineers test and develop MEMS gyros into their own designs.
