InvenSense Announces SensorStudio 2.2 Supporting MCU-Agnostic GenericSensorHub Platform

SAN JOSE, CA -- InvenSense, Inc. announces the new SensorStudio 2.2 release, the newly-released GenericSensorHub Platform and the new ICM-20690 development kit, a sensor prototyping and development platform for the Internet of Things (IoT). The new InvenSense solution generates sensor and algorithm development projects to market faster.

SensorStudio is a powerful graphical development tool originated by InvenSense to ease the development and programming of an increasing range of sensors and algorithms. With this new release, SensorStudio 2.2 has added numerous user experience improvements comprising the inclusion of Embedded Motion Driver packages from within the SensorStudio platform and adding a professional C editor with many new features such as search and replace, goto and line numbers. Of particular interest to IoT developers needing fast prototyping, SensorStudio 2.2 now adds the capability to Record and Replay all sensor and algorithm signals; creating repeatable development and test scenarios. These include rare-to-reproduce use-cases which are key to building solid test harnesses, validating ideas and turning algorithms into products quickly.

The new InvenSense IoT development platform is comprised of an integrated sensor framework software, called GenericSensorHub; integrated in an ST Microelectronics Nucleo-F411RE board. The new GenericSensorHub platform allows IoT developers a wider range of platforms thanks to its compatibility with other MCU platforms.

SensorStudio 2.2 also support the higher performance ICM-20690 MEMS 6-axis sensor that combines a 3-axis gyroscope and a 3-axis accelerometer in a small 2.5x3x0.91 mm (14-pin LGA) package. Together SensorStudio 2.2 with the new ICM-20690 development kit, developers are able to select and build on top of the GenericSensorHub embedded features (orientation, activity tracking, gestures, etc.), enabling quick design and validation of embedded sensor features on an ARM Cortex M4 MCU. The new InvenSense Development Kit comes with more processing power, additional Flash, and increased RAM, allowing developers to unleash their creativity and build smarter IoT applications quicker. SensorStudio also now works with GCC/Linaro-based development tools and Eclipse IDE debugger. In addition, the number of 3rd party components required with the Development Kit and the overall pricing has been reduced.

The ICM-20690 Development Kit is available for purchase from the InvenSense online store and SensorStudio 2.2. is ready for download from InvenSense’s Developers Corner website. For additional information, visit
