Septentrio and Analog Devices Collaborate to Develop GNSS Inertial Navigation Solutions

Septentrio, a high-precision, multi-frequency, multi-constellation GPS/GNSS positioning technology provider, has collaborated with Analog Devices to provide customers with easy access to optimized integrated GNSS inertial solutions. The two companies are combining Analog Devices’ high-quality Inertial Measurement Units (IMUs) with Septentrio’s multi-frequency, multi-constellation GNSS receivers. The resulting high-performance GNSS/INS systems deliver centimeter-level accurate positioning together with 3D orientation (heading, pitch, and roll), ideal for applications such as automotive ADAS and industrial automation.

Septentrio’s GNSS technology provides a unique combination of accuracy and robustness which is aligned well with the capabilities of Analog Devices’ sensors. Combining ADI’s IMU experience with Septentrio’s GNSS expertise enables the creation of high-performance, easy-to-integrate systems that allow its customers to tackle demanding applications. As a result, customers can expect a faster go-to-market due to the interoperability between the GNSS and INS components.

Septentrio will incorporate Analog Devices’ advanced industrial-grade IMUs into a selection of its GNSS/INS products. Working directly with Analog Devices allows Septentrio to provide faster and more efficient GNSS/INS integration solutions for high-volume customers. This collaboration promises a solid foundation for the design and production of top-performance integrated positioning and inertial solutions, with the first products available in spring 2020.
