Hosting a MEMS accelerometer, gyroscope, magnetometer, pressure sensor, and a MEMS microphone, the 13.5 mm x 13.5 mm SensorTile debuts as the smallest turnkey sensor board of its type. With the on-board low-power STM32L4 microcontroller, it can be used as a sensing and connectivity hub for developing products such as wearables, gaming accessories, and smart-home or Internet-of-Things (IoT) devices. Other features include a complete Bluetooth Low-Energy transceiver including a miniature single-chip balun on-board and a broad set of system interfaces that support use as a sensor-fusion hub or as a platform for firmware development. It can be simply plugged to a host board, and when powered it immediately starts streaming inertial, audio, and environmental data to its BlueMS smartphone app that can be downloaded free of charge from popular app stores. The system is fully compatible with the Open Software eXpansion Libraries (Open.MEMS, Open.RF, and Open.AUDIO), as well as many third-party embedded sensing and voice-processing projects. Many example programs available in source code offer a starting point for evaluation and customization, including software for position sensing, activity recognition, and low-power voice communication. The SensorTile kit (STEVAL-STLKT01V1) is available now, priced at $89. For further information, visit http://www.st.com/sensortile

LVIT Position Sensors Boast Excellent Stroke-To-Body-Length Ratio


LVIT Position Sensors Boast Excellent Stroke-To-Body-Length Ratio
Alliance Sensors Group
December 9, 2016

The LZ-25 Series linear position sensors are contactless devices designed for use in factory automation or assembly machinery applications. They are available in nominal full-scale ranges from 50 mm to 900 mm (2 to 36 inches) with an overall length of about 38 mm (1.5 inches) longer than the linear range of the unit. The sensor has a 25.4 mm (1 inch) outside diameter aluminum or optional stainless steel body with a 1-m long radial exit cable for I/O connections. The 7.5 mm (0.295 inch) diameter through-bore of an LZ-25 provides clearance for its 6.35-mm-diameter moving rod.

Reflective Optical Sensor Saves Space and Lowers Costs


Reflective Optical Sensor Saves Space and Lowers Costs
Vishay Intertechnology Inc.
December 9, 2016

Groomed for smart home, industrial, and office applications, the VCNT2020 reflective optical sensor combines an infrared emitter, silicon phototransistor detector, and daylight-blocking filter in a 2.5 mm by 2.0 mm x 0.8 mm surface-mount package. The sensor's analog output signal triggers via the detection of reflected infrared light from a nearby object. A daylight-blocking filter suppresses ambient light, increasing the signal-to-noise ratio. The device's QFN package features wettable flanks to enable optical inspection of the solder joints. Detection range is from 0.2 mm to 2.5 mm, emitter wavelength is 940 nm, and typical output current is 1.6 mA. Pricing starts at $0.50 each/5,000. Datasheet is available at http://www.vishay.com/ppg?84285

Three-Axis Magnetic Sensor Pumped For Industrial And Drone Applications


Three-Axis Magnetic Sensor Pumped For Industrial And Drone Applications
MEMSIC Inc.
December 9, 2016

The MMC5883MA three-axis magnetic sensor is said to provide the industry’s highest accuracy, lowest noise, and lowest power consumption. In an industry standard small LGA package, the component addresses the demands of industrial and drone applications.
Features include 16-bit operation over a ± 8 Gauss operating range with a linearity of ± 0.2 % FSR, hysteresis of 0.2 % FSR, and a repeatability of 0.2 % FSR on each of its three-axis. Its LGA package measures 3 mm x 3 mm x 1 mm and operates over a -40°C to + 85°C temperature range from a supply voltage of 2.16V to 3.6V with a current consumption of 20 µA at 7samples/s.

Enlarging the Wattstopper line, the DW-311 0-10V dimming wall switch occupancy sensor provides building- and energy-code-compliant occupancy and 0-10V dimming control for LED lighting applications. The component extends control to small and medium-sized applications including rooms with partitions such as restrooms, large offices, conference rooms with cubical walls, and classrooms. This sensor features Wattstopper dual technology, which combines Passive Infrared (PIR) and ultrasonic technologies to easily detect minor and major movements in spaces that may have obstacles that impede direct line of sight movement to the sensor.

Evaluation Kit Enables Simple Test Measurements Of Differential Pressure Sensors


Evaluation Kit Enables Simple Test Measurements Of Differential Pressure Sensors
Sensirion AG
December 9, 2016

For quick and easy evaluation of the SDP3x differential pressure sensors, the EK-P4 kit consists of a USB stick that connects to the PCB hosting an SDP3x differential pressure sensor. The flow element easily affixes to the kit with two screws and then directly connects to the gas flow. Viewer software, downloadable from the company’s website, shows the differential pressure using a graph. It allows simple data logging and the export of measurement data in the form of an Excel list.
