Multi-Sensor Module Jumpstarts IoT And Wearable Designs

Hosting a MEMS accelerometer, gyroscope, magnetometer, pressure sensor, and a MEMS microphone, the 13.5 mm x 13.5 mm SensorTile debuts as the smallest turnkey sensor board of its type. With the on-board low-power STM32L4 microcontroller, it can be used as a sensing and connectivity hub for developing products such as wearables, gaming accessories, and smart-home or Internet-of-Things (IoT) devices. Other features include a complete Bluetooth Low-Energy transceiver including a miniature single-chip balun on-board and a broad set of system interfaces that support use as a sensor-fusion hub or as a platform for firmware development. It can be simply plugged to a host board, and when powered it immediately starts streaming inertial, audio, and environmental data to its BlueMS smartphone app that can be downloaded free of charge from popular app stores. The system is fully compatible with the Open Software eXpansion Libraries (Open.MEMS, Open.RF, and Open.AUDIO), as well as many third-party embedded sensing and voice-processing projects. Many example programs available in source code offer a starting point for evaluation and customization, including software for position sensing, activity recognition, and low-power voice communication. The SensorTile kit (STEVAL-STLKT01V1) is available now, priced at $89. For further information, visit

An accelerometer measures the rate of change of an object’s velocity to monitor its movement.

From cell phones to industrial manufacturing, knowing when an object (or a person!) is nearby is a basic sensing requirement.
