"EMCORE now develops all its key FOG components internally including the next-generation, solid-state optical transceiver, lithium-niobate modulator and FPGA electronics," added Dr. KK Wong, Sr. Director of Fiber Optic Gyro Products for EMCORE. "This allows performance parameters to be more easily customized to specific customer requirements at price levels equivalent to, or less than that of lower-performance open-loop designs."EMCORE's EG-120 has a typical in-run bias drift from 1-10 deg/hr with Angle Random Walk (ARW) from 0.1 to 1 deg/rt-hr. The bias drift of the EG-200 is <0.1 deg/hr with ARW of 0.01 deg/rt-hr. Bias drift is an important measure of accuracy and precision of the FOG, with lower bias models delivering higher performance overall. EMCORE's new EG-120 and EG-200 FOG modules combine advanced, next-generation integrated optics and FPGA electronics to deliver higher accuracy, lower noise, greater efficiency, improved drift stability and higher linearity than competing units.
