Sensors Team Up With MCUs

The first members of the iNEMO family of multi-sensor inertial measurement unit (IMU) devices integrate a variety of motion, magnetic, pressure and temperature sensors with a 32-bit microcontroller (MCU) and dedicated software in one package. The family of modules offer combinations of three-axis sensing of linear, angular, and magnetic motion with temperature and barometer/altitude readings. The modules contain a memory card socket for data logging and dedicated connectors for wired/wireless connectivity including USB, ZigBee or GPS. The first module, the STEVAL-MKI062V1, integrates six different sensors and a 32-bit MCU. It is available as a 4.5 cm x 5 cm evaluation board with a firmware library, GUI, and a set of software solutions for different applications. STMICROELECTRONICS, Lexington, MA. (888) 787-3550.
