MEMS Sensor Provides 3D Orientation Info
Consolidating multiple sensor functions in a single 14-pin LGA ECOPACK SMT package, STMicroelectronics’ FC30 sensor provides 3D orientation as well as click detection to recognize mouse-button controls. Accepting a nominal 2.5V at 0.3 mA, the 3.0 × 5.0 × 0.9-mm device exhibits an accuracy of ±3 degrees with a max acceleration of 10,000 g for 0.1 ms. Features of the RoHS-compliant sensor include 3 interrupt lines, a 1-µA power-down mode, and an operating temperature range from -40° to 85°C. From approximately $1.00.
