Product News and CHIMU 2010 End Of Life Notice


  • The original CHIMU units (CHIMU and CHIMU 2010) are officially end of life as of April, 2011.

  • There is a limited remaining stock of CHIMU 2010's. Please purchase any units needed for continued support of existing installations.

  • The CHIMU line will continue with the CHIMU Josephine (CHIMU-J) model, which is pin compatible with the original units.

We do not wish to add to your spam filter. If you do not wish to receive news regarding Ryan Mechatronics activities and products in the future, please reply to this newsletter and indicate you wish to be removed.

In the next few weeks, we'll be making the CHIMU-J unit available for purchase. More about that later, but at the same time we are no longer producing and selling the original CHIMU and CHIMU 2010 units.

A limited stock of CHIMU 2010 units remain, and users worried about compatability with existing projects may want to consider purchasing these units now. Any units purchased will be temperature calibrated at no charge (i.e. order the basic version and we will send a temperature calibrated unit).

Please understand that despite the EOL for the CHIMU 2010 model, we will continue to support all units that have been purchased as we move into the CHIMU-J line of products.

CHIMU 2010 units have the following features that are NOT continuing in the CHIMU-J line:

  • DAC current output proportional to rate and / or angle is no longer supported
  • Big-endian output format no longer valid

New features of the CHIMU-J will be described more fully in a future newsletter. However, some of the highlights include:

  • 1 kHz update rate
  • Wider range on rate and acceleration
  • Factor of 10x lower noise on sensor data
  • Faster bias estimation
  • Easy access connector for alternate applications
  • Lower cost!

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software
