The ADIS16488 is a Micro Electromechanical System (MEMS) Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) from Analog Devices. It features low noise gyros and accelerometers in a small, light weight and rugged, environmentally sealed enclosure


OEM-ADIS16488 v8

The ADIS16488 enables precision measurements for applications that require low cost, high performance and rugged durability in a very small form factor.


  • Low noise commercial grade gyros and accelerometers
  • Small size and light weight
  • 10-30 VDC power input
  • 200 Hz data rate
  • Long MTBF
  • SPAN INS functionality


  • Economical
  • Non-ITAR IMU
  • Ideal for size constrained applications
  • Easy to integrate with SPAN GNSS receivers

About SPAN: World-Leading GNSS + INS Technology

SPAN technology brings together two different but complementary technologies: Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) positioning and Inertial Navigation Systems (INS). The absolute accuracy of GNSS positioning and the stability of IMU measurements combine to provide an exceptional 3D navigation and attitude solution that is stable and continuously available, even through periods when satellite signals are blocked.

Combining SPAN and MEMS Technology

A proprietary NovAtel MEMS Interface Card (MIC) couples the ADIS16488 with SPAN receivers, offering a unique, powerful GNSS/INS system for weight and size constrained applications. Designed as a board stack configuration for ease of integration, the MIC interfaces directly with NovAtel’s small form factor OEM615 SPAN receiver.

Require Higher Accuracy?

NovAtel’s AdVance® RTK or SBAS can be used to improve real-time performance and accuracy. For more demanding applications, Inertial Explorer® post-processing software from our Waypoint® Products Group offers the highest level of accuracy.
