Paper Title:
Design of an Intelligent Multi-Gyro Measurement Device
  Abstract

This paper describes the design of an intelligent multi-gyro measurement device to measure and monitor an inertial unit composed of three dynamically tuned gyros (DTGs). A 16-bit microprogrammed control unit is programmed to fulfill the functions of signal processing, logic control and serial communication with a master computer. An FPGA, designed by using Verilog Hardware Description Language, is used to realize high speed 16-bit reversible counters for output pulses of the DTG digital dynamic balance circuits. The count values represent the angular motion of the inertial unit. A stepping electric bridge is employed to measure the resistance of thermal resistors within the gyros in a wide temperature environment. The resistance represents the working temperature of the gyros. An effective calibration method for the bridge is developed to eliminate the resistance measurement error. A test system is established to examine whether the device meets the user requirements. Results of the tests show that the device has a good performance. A trial use has proved that the device is stable and reliable and that it satisfies the demand of the user.
