Tokai-City, Japan (PRWEB) April 25, 2011
The Electromagnetic Products business of Aichi Steel Corp. the leading magnetometer provider introduced the AMI603 high performance 6-axis motion sensor optimized for use in the mobile handset and tablet markets.
The AMI603 is an ultra-small 6-axis motion sensor that integrates a 3-axis magnetic sensor, 3-axis accelerometer, and IC controller into a single chip. It is capable of detecting direction, tilt, and motion.
One of the main characteristics of The AMI603 is that it has an azimuth accuracy error of less than 3 degrees, much more accurate than that of existing products (within 10 degrees.) The fast sampling time of 0.6 milliseconds allows it to measure rotation speed to provide the world’s first 6-axis magnetic gyro function.
The AMI603 is an improvement to The AMI602, 65% smaller than while utilizing 50% less power. The AMI603 high density package meets the specifications for electronic components mounted in mobile handsets. A low power consumption pedometer has also been embedded.
Motion sensors have become standard equipment on mobile handsets with usage increasing rapidly. Aichi developed an ultra-small electronic compass in July 2010 which entered mass production in February 2011. Mobile handsets have been increasingly used with navigation, games, air-mouse, and other functions. The new AMI603 is able to meet the performance requirements for these functions.
Samples will be available in April 2011 for $3 USD each.
