AHRS/IMU Module Targets Consumer/IoT Apps

Hillcrest Labs launches the FSM300, a cost effective and low power AHRS/IMU module that delivers the sensor fusion accuracy of industrial-grade sensor technologies at a price point suitable for consumer applications. With 0.5°per minute heading drift and 1.0° orientation accuracy in a very low power device, the FSM300 sets a new price/performance standard – up to 4X better than competitor solution in some tests.   

 

Designed to dramatically improve human and machine motion sensing in a diverse set of consumer and IoT applications, the FSM300 combines MotionEngine, Hillcrest’s high-performance, proprietary sensor processing software, with a 3-axis accelerometer, 3-axis gyroscope, and 3-axis magnetometer, along with a low-power 32-bit ARM Cortex M0+ MCU.
