STMicroelectronics , today unveiled a motion sensor that measures very high accelerations along all three axes at ultra-low current consumption, the first in the world of its type.
STMicroelectronics designed the H3LIS331DL accelerometers in response to the need for precision shock detection in space and power constrained applications. The need to both detect and measure high-g shocks in a broad range of applications:
- Car black boxes
- Freight monitoring systems
- Medical monitoring devices ;and
- Sports equipment.
The new high-g accelerometers provide three-axis motion sensing across selectable ranges boast excellent stability over time and temperature by combining an innovative micro-machined sensing structure with the low-power interface of ST’s market-proven acceleration sensors.
