Electronic Products Magazine has selected SENtral™, the ultra-low power motion co-processor, for a prestigious 2013 Product of the Year Award. "The SENtral sensor fusion co-processor from PNI Sensor presents a highly effective way to pull in data from complex motion sensor systems with gyroscope, accelerometer, and magnetometer sensors that are often found in mobile and wearable devices. The device offloads complex sensor algorithm processing from a main CPU and takes only a few hundred microamps while doing so," said Jim Harrison, technical editor, Electronic Products Magazine. "SENtral can handle the job of managing and 'fusing' data from these multiple sensors with a nine-axis sensor fusion algorithm, further unburdening the CPU. Plus, it's only 1.6 x 1.6 x 0.5 mm, and it works over -40° to +85°C. What's not to like about this chip?" Read the full article from Electronic Products here. SENtral is available in volume from EM Microelectronic as the EM7180.
