VTI Technologies has started volume production of the world's smallest and lowest power consuming digital output 3-axis angular rate sensor, the CMR3000.
Following the success of the CMA3000 3-axis low-power accelerometer, VTI announced the extension to it's productrangelast yeartomeet therapidly increasingdemand forMEMS sensors in theconsumer electronicsindustries.
After the introduction ofthe CMR3000inAutumn 2010 and very positive feedback from the market VTI has now started volume production of the 3-axis angular rate sensor.
"The CMR3000's low current consumption, excellent sensitivity stability and small size match perfectly with the requirements of consumer electronics manufacturers”, says Pekka Kostiainen, Product Manager at VTI. "The CMR3000 is optimised for user interface and gaming applications. Due to gaming requirements the measurement range is +/- 2000 dps with selectable measurement bandwidths. In the case of cell phones the wafer level package enables the smallest size of 3.1x4.2x0.8 mm3 with digital SPI and I2C interfaces, which is a clear benefit.".
To support easy implementation of the CMR3000 VTI is providing HW and SW support to its customers. As an example, an Android driver is available including the library, documentation and demo applications. Furthermore, VTI supports customers with optimizing sensor signal processing for their application.
Samples, Evaluation boards and Evaluation kits are now available from ACTE UK.
