  1. Hi =) so i got some free samples of the idg300 gyro now i just need some cheap boards to put them on. Do any of you guys no where i can find a board the fits a 40 pin QFN package that has leads going out from those 40 pins so i can connect resistors and capacitors. I do not know how to do pcb design. thanks
  2. also does anyone know of a good anti drift type gyro
  3. okay so for yaw drift can i just turn on the gyro and not move it then redored the drift ouputs then set those to whatever the zero rate is so that i dont' get drift on the pan and tilt?
  4. i was going to use a dual axis accelerometer to double check wether or not any movement has taken place. i know it should work with tilt but i'm not sure if that would work with yaw. Do you have any suggestions.
  5. i want to use it for tracking head position with an accuracy of 1 or 2 degrees.
  6. will an 8 bit micro controller be enough for the 300? or will it be better to read the gyro with a 10 bit micro controller and if so do you guys have any recommendations preferably c code or assembly. also i need a wirless camera with reciver and i see that most of you guys us the kx131 with airwave transmitter and receiver. I'm on a low coast budget, have any of you tested a lower cost set up that can reach 100 feet with a resonable clear picture? thanks
  7. I found this dual axis gyro (IDG-1000) and i'm new to gyros so if anyone could help me understand the specs more that would be helpful. the power supply voltage is 3 volts and it says the zero rate output is 1.23 volts. does this mean when the gyro outputs 1.23 volts that it is not moving. If so then is the voltage range go from 3-0 volts for both axis. the sensitivity is 33mV/degree/sec if i divide this into 3 volts and i get 90 steps. Can i then read this with attiny 26 8 bit microcontroller that will use a timer to control servo motors? If anyone has any better ideas or better gyros and microcontrollers i'm all ears.
  8. so this can be used for head tracking? I think i might be using the wrong world before by saying motion control i think what i should have said was head tracking. sorry.
  9. HI, I am new to this forum and the motion control technology. I have some questions on what to use for my motion controller. First off i want to be able to measure yaw and pitch. From what I've read gyros are more accurate than accelerometers due to the fact that they measure angular velocity. Please correct me if I'm wrong. Like many of you i will be controlling and pan & tilt device with a camera. I need it to be within a 2 degree accuracy and a distance of 100 feet. I'm not sure what to use, can someone give me suggestions on how i should go about doing this. What kind of gyro sensitivity level, from the gyros output what kind of programmable controller to read the motion and control the pan & tilt. Also can i use one board to do everything such as read the gyro, control pan & tilt, receive camera transmission and link to video goggles. O yeah and my funds are low so that is why I'm trying to make my own motion controller. One more thing do you have a preference on accurate servo motors that will work for this project. Please Help Thanks
