San Jose, Calif. - InvenSense, Inc., a provider of MEMS sensor platform solutions, launched the ICM-20648, a 6-axis inertial measurement unit (IMU) with an advanced software stack for wrist-worn wearable devices. The ICM-20648 includes InvenSense’s 6-axis integrated MEMS (3-axis accelerometer + 3-axis gyroscope) motion sensors and digital motion processor (DMP) blocks for lower power sensor processing in a 3- x 3- x 0.9-mm 24-QFN package.
The updated wearable software stack for the ICM-20648 which is run in the IMU’s DMP at low power and in conjunction with a host MCU or apps processor, delivers activity recognition (walk, run, bike, still), step counter, Bring-to-See (B2S) gesture, in addition to the standard Android fusion stack.
The IMU delivers the baseline features required for wrist-worn devices that require inertial sensor processing, which helps speed up time to market for new product launches.
“The included software stack enables the OEM to focus on their own unique differentiating features, in addition to those offered by the ICM-20648,” said Eitan Medina, vice president of marketing and product management at InvenSense, in a statement.
Availability: Samples of the 6-axis ICM-20648 wearable platform are available. Availability to the distribution channel is expected in Q2 2017.
InvenSense is exhibiting in booth #31420 in South Hall 3 at the 2017 Consumer Electronics Show (CES), Las Vegas.
