The SD746 from SensorDynamics AG, Lebring, Austria, is a 6 DoF IMU designed for motion measurement in consumer and industrial applications. The combo MEMS sensor measures the angular rate and acceleration in all 3 axes and is supplied in a QFN 40 package. The device has a measurement range of ±2048°/s for angular rate and ±8 g for acceleration and provides temperature-compensated and factory-calibrated digital measurements with high resolution via SPI or I2 interfaces. Motion detection mode turns off the gyros and operates the accelerometers in a pulsed mode, consuming 25 µA at the 1 Hz accelerometer sample rate. A power off mode has no power consumption but maintains the SPI interface at high-impedance levels so that the sensor need not be separated from the bus.

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.
