The company’s latest motion module pairs an MM7150 motion co-processor with nine-axis sensors including accelerometer, magnetometer ,and gyroscope in a small form factor. With a simple I2C connection to most MCUs/MPUs, embedded/Internet of Things (IoT) applications can easily tap into the module's motion and position data. The SSC7150 motion co-processor is pre-programmed with sensor fusion algorithms that intelligently filter, compensate, and combine the raw sensor data to provide accurate position and orientation information. The small form factor module is self-calibrating during operation utilizing data from the pre-populated sensors; Bosch BMC150 (six-axis digital compass) and the BMG160 (three-axis Gyroscope). The MM7150 is available in a 17 mm x 17 mm body and is priced at $26.76 each/1,000. A brief presentation is available at http://www.microchip.com/MM7150-Press-Presentation-022415a
