Multi-sensor MEMs module with programmable motion-recognition capabilities
16 July 2012
STMicroelectronics announced a miniature 6-axis sensor device with custom motion-recognition capabilities.
ST’s latest iNEMO inertial LSM330 module houses a 3-axis digital gyroscope and a 3-axis digital accelerometer with two embedded finite state machines. Programmable state machines enable the identification of specific motions or gestures and initiate associated actions or applications, such as switching on an augmented-reality view of a near-by object by moving your phone with a specific gesture. Integrated processing capability in MEMS sensors helps decrease power consumption in battery-hungry portable devices and brings more freedom and flexibility to the design of motion-enabled consumer electronics.
ST’s module detects acceleration up to 16g and angular rate up to 2,000 dps along the pitch, roll and yaw axes. The integration of high-resolution linear- and angular-motion sensing in a single device increases system robustness and the advanced module design ensures superior thermal and mechanical stability.
