Abstract : Square-wave excitation of the temperature-sensing bridge in the thermal jacket of a precision gyroscope can result in improper operation of the temperature controller. A model of such a bridge is constructed using frequency-response data and the physical layout of the bridge. A successful compensation technique to allow satisfactory operation with square-wave excitation is then derived from the model.
