EMP-1.2K Lithium-Niobate Fiber Optic Gyroscopes
Precision Fiber Optic Gyroscopes
Separate Electronics and Sensor
EMCORE’s long standing leadership in development of highly-accurate defense
and military grade fiber optic components and systems is what makes the EMP1.2K a clear choice when selecting solid-state precision gyroscope components.
With fully integrated optics and electronics, the EMP-1.2K is a superior device in
regards to weight and form-factor. It features advanced optics and digital signal
processing (DSP) for much higher accuracy, lower noise and greater efficiency.
The integrated DSP also improves optical drift stability, higher linearity and greater
environmental flexibility. Additionally, the unit can be calibrated internally for better
thermal effect. Separation of the electronics from the FOG’s sensing coil assembly
provides widest variety of installation flexibility.
