AIS328DQ
is new automotive-qualified low-g accelerometer offers excellent stability, it is here.
The AIS328DQ is an ultra low-power high performance three axis linear accelerometer with a digital serial interface SPI standard output.
An I2C compatible interface is also available.
The device features ultra low-power operational modes that allow advanced power saving and smart sleep-to-wakeup functions. The AIS328DQ has dynamic user-selectable full-scales of 2g/4g/8g and it is capable of measuring accelerations with output data rates from 0.5 Hz to 1 kHz.
The self-test capability allows the user to check the functioning of the sensor in the final application.
The device may be configured to generate an interrupt signal through inertial wakeup/free-fall events, or by the position of the device itself.
Thresholds and timing of interrupt generators are programmable by the end user on-the-fly. Available in small Quad Flat Pack no-lead package (QFPN) with a 4x4 mm footprint, the AIS328DQ is able to respond to the trend towards application miniaturization, and is guaranteed to operate over a temperature range from -40 C to +105 C.

    INEMO-M1


    • The INEMO-M1 is the smallest 9-axis system-on-board (SoB) of the iNEMO module family.
      It integrates multiple ST sensors with a powerful computational core: a 6-axis geomagnetic module, a 3-axis gyroscope and an ARM Cortex™ M3 32-bit MCU.
      This 9-DoF inertial system represents a fully integrated solution that can be used in numerous applications such as virtual reality, augmented reality, image stabilization, human machine interfaces, robotics and inertial body tracking.
      A complete set of communication interfaces in a very small size form factor (13x13x2 mm) make the INEMO-M1 system-on-board a flexible solution for effortless orientation estimation in embedded applications.
