Epson Toyocom announced the development of the AH-6100LR, asserted to be the world's smallest six-axis sensor. This low-noise, low-power product comprises a three-axis QMEMS quartz gyro-sensor and an extremely stable three-axis accelerometer within a single package. The AH-6100LR has a wide dynamic range of 81 dB to 83 dB (200 Hz output bandwidth), enabling high-precision control via accurate tracing and helping improve the certainty of motion recognition. The new six-axis sensor offers critical application performance features into a small package (10.0 mm x 8.0 mm x 3.8 mm). Among these features are 5,000 g of shock resistance and current consumption of 6.1 mA, a more than sufficiently low power draw to meet the requirements of low power systems. The device also includes a built-in low-pass filter.
