Overview

The FSP200 integrates Hillcrest’s high-performance sensor hub software stack into a low-power 32-bit ARM Cortex M3 MCU. Additionally, it includes specialty algorithms designed for use in robotic navigation applications.

Our Interactive Calibration utilizes state information from the robot itself to adjust the output accuracy of the FSP200. Turn-table calibration adjusts for the scale error of the gyroscope with an easy to implement simple factory setup.

With these features, this small, turn-key component benefits developers and integrators through faster time-to-market, reductions in development time, reduced BOM cost, and the highest precision and quality.
