Motion Sensor Hub from PNI, EM Microelectronic

PNI Sensor Corp.

The Sentral sensor fusion hub from PNI Sensor Corp., Santa Rosa, CA, and EM Microelectronic - Marin SA, Marin, Switzerland, allows you to integrate complex motion sensors on mobile devices by managing sensor outputs on a low-power IC, making 9-axis motion sensing outputs precise and practical to implement. The device can support a variety of gyros, accelerometers, and magnetic sensors from a variety of vendors; draws 800 µA in normal operation, is 1.6 × 1.6 × 0.5 mm, incorporates sensor fusion algorithms, reduces power usage by offloading sensor fusion work from host or sensor CPUs, and is designed and built specifically for the mobile market.
