Sensor Hub Supports Android 6.0 Marshmallow

Bosch Sensortec’s next-gen sensor hub promises to be a ready-to-deploy solution for smartphones, tablets and other devices running the Android 6.0 Marshmallow operating system. The hub integrates an advanced feature software library to leverage the company’s high-performance motion and environmental sensors. It supports full sensor data fusion with 3-, 6- or 9-axis sensors and can accommodate a variety of integrated solutions combining sensor hubs with individual sensors. The library complies with the Android M Compatibility Test Suite (CTS) 6.0. In power-saving mode, with all its low power sensors enabled, the hub reduces power demand down to 0.1 mW. In full operating mode, with all 29 motion sensors in operation, seven environmental sensors, Android M specified virtual sensors, always-on, wakeup and non-wakeup features running, the power consumption is approximately 10 mW.
