ST Microelectronics presents the iNEMO 6DoF inertial MEMS (Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems) module that integrates three-axis sensing of linear and angular motion all in one package.
The iNEMO offers high-precision gesture and motion recognition in a small size that is suitable for mobile phones, gaming controls, personal navigation systems and other smart consumer devices. The iNEMO 6DoF module allows customers, already using ST Microelectronics’ single-function sensors, to easily upgrade their designs and benefit from the size reduction and outstanding reliability the device has to offer.
The iNEMO module provides precise alignment of the two sensors’ reference axes and the advanced design of its mechanical sensing structure with thermal and mechanical stability. The module includes power-down and sleep modes and an embedded FIFO (first-in first-out) memory block for smarter power management. The iNEMO can also operate with any voltage supply over the range of 2.4 – 2.6V.
The INEMO 6DoF inertial MEMS module, from ST Microelectronics, offers a wide range of applications including motion-activated user interfaces in smart consumer devices, dead-reckoning and map-matching in personal navigation devices, and intelligent power saving and free-fall detection in portable electronics.
