MEMS Sensor Modules Transform A Smartphone to An Intelligent PDA

The company’s latest generation of miniaturized six-axis MEMS inertial sensor modules sport an ultra-low-power design that strengthens the smartphone’s emerging role as an “always-on” personal assistant. The LSM6DSL and LSM6DSM are said to cut power consumption by as much as 50% over the company’s LSM6DS3 and LSM6DS3H devices. In addition, the latest sensors boost gyroscope accuracy to support enhanced user experiences such as Optical Image Stabilization (OIS), visual localization detection, and gesture recognition, while the accelerometer-driven step detection, step counting and pedometer, as well as tilt and significant-motion detection are also integrated. Of the two new modules, the LSM6DSM has a dedicated additional processing and serial port for camera OIS. Prices are $1.99 for the LSM6DSL, and $2.50 for the LSM6DSM each/1,000.
