ST Microelectronics introduces a new high performance 3-axis MEMS accelerometer designed to enhance gaming, user interface and augmented reality experiences.
ST’s new LIS344AHH MEMS accelerometers provide a large full-scale range of up to ±18g combined with high bandwidth, low noise, and high mechanical and thermal stability, making them suitable for industrial controls and impact monitoring.
The LIS344AHH full-scale range is user-selectable up to ±6g or ±18g, enhancing performance over similar devices that measure up to ±16g. The device has a supply voltage range of 2.4V to 3.6V, features embedded self-test, and is housed in a compact 4mm x 4mm x 1.5mm 16-lead LGA-16 package.
The high bandwidth of the new device permits a high output data rate allowing sustained accurate measurement of rapidly changing accelerations, and enabling enhanced industrial controls, robotic equipment and wearable electronics such as sports monitors.
Combining high data rate with low-noise operation that enables monitoring of small-amplitude displacements, ST’s newest accelerometer delivers smoother, more responsive performance in motion-activated controls and also supports more demanding applications such as virtual augmented reality.
