Sensor Module Makes Consumer Products Sleeker

Packing six degrees of freedom in a 3 mm x 5.5 mm x 1 mm package, the LSM330D multi-sensor module integrates three-axis sensing of linear and angular motion. It features a user-selectable full-scale acceleration range from 2g to 16g with angular-rate detection from 250 dps to 2,000 dps along the pitch, roll, and yaw axes.  The module includes power-down and sleep modes and two embedded FIFO memory blocks, one for each sensor. Additionally, it can operate with any supply voltage over a range from 2.4V to 3.6V. Pricing is $2.75 each/1,000. STMICROELECTRONICS, Lexington, MA. (888) 787-3550.
