Freescale Xtrinsic Sensing Solutions sensors

Tuesday, 09 August, 2011 | Supplied by: element14



Xtrinsic Sensing Solutions from Freescale has been introduced to the inventory of element14.

Sensory technology is currently one of the fastest growing semiconductor sectors. Research firm Gartner has predicted that the sales of non-optical sensors will grow to $6.2 billion by 2014 globally.

The sensor series integrates intelligent sensing capability and precision to enable engineers to develop multifunctional, intuitive and ultimately, more intelligent devices.

Professionals in the electronics industry can buy the sensors via multiple channels with no minimum quantity or value and next-day delivery in most cities in Asia-Pacific. 24/7 customer service telephone support and 24/5 online technical support are also available at http://au.element14.com for Australia and http://nz.element14.com for New Zealand.

The sensors feature intelligent contextual sensing that enables the devices to have decision-making capability. This creates and manages a diverse portfolio of sensors that provides multiple inputs and extracts maximum quantity of information from the environment.

These multiple sensor types coordinate their data coherently through modular integration, which allows the right combination of sensor types, logic and other building blocks to produce smarter and more relevant data to solve case needs efficiently.

MMA8450QT, a member of the Freescale family, is a smart, low-power accelerometer that provides 12-bit data with first in, first out to accomplish complex gesture recognition and position detection. It has two programmable interrupt pins that allow the independent monitoring of the two functions.

In addition, this component’s embedded FIFO buffer enables a more efficient analysis of gestures and user-programmable algorithms. This function ensures that no data is lost on a shared I2C bus and enables system level power savings of up to 96% of the total power consumption savings by allowing the applications processor to sleep while data is logged.
