STMicro’s MEMS Inertial Module Targets Demanding AR, VR, and Tracking Apps

June 28, 2019 Alix Paultre

STMicroelectronics LSM6DSR inertial module combines high stability with advanced digital features, low power consumption, and small size for head-mounted displays, wearable trackers, smartphones, robotics and drones. The LSM6DSR MEMS System-in-Package contains a 3-axis digital accelerometer and a 3-axis digital gyroscope with a specially extended full-scale angular rate of 4,000 degrees per second for fast-moving gaming and sports applications.

Compliant with major mobile OSes, and supporting S4S Synchronization for Sensors, the LSM6DSR is compatible with popular mobile platforms and provides real, virtual and batch sensing, with a 9Kbyte FIFO featuring compression for dynamic data batching. Native advanced pedometer, step-detector, and step-counter functions, and significant-motion and tilt detection ensure accurate and efficient activity recognition.

An enhanced mechanical design minimizes bias and offset drift and temperature-related parameter changes, ensuring long-term consistency and eliminating complex recalibration, reducing power consumption and maximizing application performance. The LSM6DSR is available now in a 2.5mm x 3mm x 0.83mm 14-pin plastic LGA package, and available from $3.00 for 1,000 units.
