LSM330DLC Ultra-Compact Multi-Sensor MEMS Module

STMicroelectronics' latest iNEMO® device packs 6 degrees of freedom and embedded intelligence in about 10 mm³

ST's latest iNEMO inertial module enhances user experience and motion-sensing realism in today's space-constrained and power-hungry portable consumer devices and shortcuts the path to wearable sensor applications in sports, fitness, and healthcare diagnostics.

The LSM330 module houses a three-axis digital gyroscope and a three-axis digital accelerometer with two embedded finite state machines - programmable blocks that enable custom motion recognition inside the module. Programmable state machines enable the identification of specific motions or gestures and initiate associated actions or applications, such as switching on an augmented-reality view of a nearby object by moving your phone with a specific gesture. Integrated processing capability in MEMS sensors helps decrease power consumption in battery-hungry portable devices and brings more freedom and flexibility to the design of motion-enabled consumer electronics.

Addressing power constraints in battery-operated portable devices, the module includes power-down and sleep modes and an embedded FIFO (first-in, first-out) memory block for smarter power management. In addition, it can operate with any supply voltage over the range of 2.4 to 3.6 V. The LSM330 has a user-selectable full-scale acceleration range of ±2/±4/±6/±8/±16 g and an angular rate range of ±250/±500/±2000 dps.
