DSP-3100 Fiber Optic Gyro (FOG) (Non-ITAR)

High-speed Data Output in a Compact Package

Designed for demanding applications requiring high-speed data output, the EMCORE DSP-3100 offers a powerful high-speed digital RS-422 interface with 1000 Hz asynchronous output in a package more compact than the EMCORE DSP-3400. With its industry-standard Samtec 26-pin connector, it offers a versatile package ideal for installations with tighter installation requirements while not sacrificing performance, reliability, or durability.


  • EMCORE’s mature all-fiber optical circuit for exceptionally low noise (ARW)
  • EMCORE’s proprietary E•Core polarization-maintaining fiber
  • Robust, modular design housed in a package roughly the same size as a deck of playing cards

Technology Details

DSP Technology
EMCORE’s DSP electronics improve FOG performance in critical areas such as scale factor and bias vs. temperature, scale factor linearity, and maximum input rate. EMCORE’s exclusive DSP design is covered by multiple patents* and overcomes the limitations of analog signal processing, eliminating temperature-sensitive drift and rotation errors.

Feature Options

Two Versatile Variants

  • If you require a compact FOG with a choice of analog, digital, and digital RS-232 outputs, consider the DSP-3000.
  • If you require a true RS-422 interface and a 1000 Hz synchronous output in a durable, shielded package, take a look at the DSP-3400.


  • Single-axis FOG, modular design for 1, 2, or 3-axis configurations
  • 1˚ per hour performance
  • Available in three variants – DSP-3000, DSP-3100, and DSP-3400 – for outstanding versatility
  • Exceptional bias stability and scale factor linearity – minimal temperature and power-up errors
  • Excellent reliability: >55,000 hours MTBF, Ground Mobile


  • Antenna/radar/optics stabilization
  • Gun/turret stabilization
  • IMU, GPS/INS integration
  • AHRS integration
