Epson Toyocom Develops World’s Smallest 6-Axis Sensor for precise motion tracking
Epson Toyocom today announced the development of the AH-6100LR, the world’s smallest 6-axis sensor. This low-noise, low-power Epson product comprises a 3-axis QMEMS quartz gyro-sensor and an extremely stable 3-axis accelerometer within a single package. The AH-6100LR has a wide dynamic range of 81 to 83 dB (200 Hz output bandwidth), enabling high-precision control via accurate tracing and helping improve the certainty of motion recognition. The high-integrity analog signal output of the AH-6100LR has the flexibility to meet the need for mixed signal processing in customer systems.
Customers can thus process signals in the best way for any given application, and realize designs with low noise and broadband output. The new 6-axis sensor features 5,000 g of shock resistance and current consumption of just 6.1 mA. Samples of the new AH-6100LR will become available in February 2010. Commercial development is scheduled for May 2010.
