STMicroelectronics has expanded its portfolio with a new device that combines three-axis sensing of both linear and angular motion. STs high-performance multi-sensor module with six degrees of freedom targets advanced motion-sensing applications, including remote controls, black-box recorders, and enhanced GPS systems.
STs LSM330DL multi-sensor module detects acceleration up to 16g and angular rate up to 2,000 dps along the pitch, roll and yaw axes . The integration of a 3-axis digital accelerometer with a 3-axis digital gyroscope in a single device increases system robustness and the advanced design of the mechanical sensing structure guarantees outstanding thermal and mechanical stability.
STs LSM330DL multi-sensor module is available now, with unit pricing at $3.80 for volumes in the range of 1,000 pieces. If your company has a high-volume need, please contact your ST sales office.
