Abstract: ACUTRONIC’s customers keep pushing the performance boundaries of their devices such as gyroscopes, and they demand more performance out of their test equipment, the rate tables. This paper shows how ACUTRONIC continually increases the performance of its products, and in particular how imperfections of motors and angular sensors are compensated for to yield superior rate stability. This is accomplished by introducing look-up tables into the signal path. An innovative method to quickly tune the parameters of theses tables is put forth, which automates tedious and time consuming work, and yields improved results compared to the previously established method of manual tuning.
