ADI and Septentrio, the global leader in high-precision GNSS receivers, announced a collaboration to provide centimeter-accurate positioning together with 3D orientation (heading, pitch and roll)  for applications such as automotive ADAS and industrial automation.

In this partnership, Septentrio will incorporate Analog Devices' industrial-grade IMU into its GNSS/INS products. Working with Analog Devices enables Septentrio to provide a faster and more efficient GNSS/INS integration solution for a large number of customers. This collaboration promises a solid foundation for design and production of top-performance integrated positioning and inertial solutions, with first products available in spring 2020.

“Septentrio’s GNSS technology provides a unique combination of accuracy and robustness which is aligned well with the capabilities of our sensors. The company’s deep know-how of GNSS and focus on providing reliable solutions even in harsh environments complements Analog Devices’ focus to solve the toughest engineering challenges for our customers,” said Tony Zarola, General Manager of Inertial Sensors, Analog Devices.

“ADI’s high-end industrial IMU systems are a reference in the industry and we are very pleased to be working together with them,” said Danilo Sabbatini, Product Manager at Septentrio. “Combining ADI’s IMU experience with our GNSS expertise enables creation of high-performance, easy-to-integrate systems that allow our 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.”
