EMCORE’s SDI500 Series Inertial Measurement Unit Exceeds 5,000 Unit Sales Milestone
The SDI500 IMU was originally introduced in 2010 as the only MEMS IMU capable of delivering true tactical-grade performance of 1.0°/hr gyro bias and 1 mg accel bias stability over a full temperature range from 55 °C to +85 °C. By 2015, over 1,000 units had been delivered, and by 2018 sales had exceeded 2,500 units. With its high reliability and accuracy, even in challenging environments, the SDI500’s market success has continued at an accelerated rate with sales doubling in a little over 2 years.
