STMicroelectronics new iNEMO module will make sleek consumer devices more Sensitive and sleek

STMicroelectronics today announced a new inertial module that integrates three-axis sensing of linear and angular motion in a miniature 3 x 5.5 x 1mm package. Reducing size by almost 20% over devices currently in production, ST’s newest iNEMO module with six degrees of freedom delivers advanced motion-sensing capabilities in today’s space-constrained consumer applications, such as smart phones, tablets and other portable electronic devices and will enable even more sleek products in the future. In addition to the space-saving benefits, ST’s newest iNEMO module enhances user experience and motion-sensing realism through its advanced design and real-time sensor data fusion capabilities.

The module design ensures precise alignment of the two sensors’ reference axes and superior thermal and mechanical stability, while ST’s iNEMO Engine data-fusion software employs sophisticated prediction and filtering algorithms to automatically correct measurement distortions and inaccuracies. Fully software-compatible with ST’s latest-generation 3-axis digital accelerometers (LIS3DH) and gyroscopes (L3GD20), the new iNEMO module makes it easy for customers using ST’s single-function sensors to upgrade their designs, reducing the board size, number of external components, and overall application system complexity.
