06/22/10 Embedded features include click and double-click recognition, 4D/6D orientation detection, the power-saving sleep-to-wake-up mode and a programmable FIFO memory block for smarter power management. STMicroelectronics (NYSE: STM), a supplier of MEMS for consumer and portable applications, has extended its motion-sensor portfolio with a 3-axis digital-output accelerometer that combines a drastically reduced power consumption – more than 90% lower than available solutions on the market - with miniature footprint and enhanced functionality. With operating current consumption as low as 2 microamps, the 3x3x1 mm accelerometer is a perfect fit for motion-sensing features and applications in space- and power-constrained consumer devices, such…
12/19/09 By integrating a 3-axis digital accelerometer with a 2-axis analog gyroscope in a single module, the new device improves performance, boosts reliability, reduces size and shrinks cost, for multiple applications in remote controllers, personal navigation systems and other portable devices. STMicroelectronics (NYSE: STM),a supplier of MEMS for consumer and portable applications, has integrated a 3-axis digital accelerometer with a 2-axis analog gyroscope in a single module. The package-level integration of linear and angular motion sensors improves performance, boosts reliability, reduces size and shrinks cost, uncovering new possibilities for high-precision gesture and motion recognition in mobile phones, remote controllers, personal navigation…
