Building a virtual gyro

Originally posted by Michael E Stanley of Freescale Semiconductor in The Embedded Beat on Mar 12, 2013 In Orientation Representations Part 1 and Part 2, we explore some of the mathematical ways to represent the orientation of an object. Now we’re going to apply that knowledge to build a virtual gyroscope using data from a 3-axis accelerometer […]

Explore “MEMS Sensor Fusion/Sensor Networks”

November 2-3, 2011 Monterey Plaza Resort & Spa An annual executive forum promoting the commercialization of MEMS As engineers combine MEMS devices with integrated circuits to create feature-rich heterogeneous environments, embedded systems have become more complex. Now smartphones may include accelerometers, gyroscopes, magnetometers, silicon microphones, RF MEMS, and even micro-displays, to produce a “full package” […]

The Zen of Sensor Design

Contributed by Mike Stanley Originally posted on Freescale’s Smart Mobile Devices Embedded Beat Blog About two years ago, I joined the Freescale sensors team, which focuses on accelerometers, pressure sensors, and touch sensors. Prior to that, I spent a number of years in the Freescale’s microcontroller solutions group, where I was an architect for several […]

Is MEMS Design Holding Back MEMS Growth?

Via EDA company Cadence’s community blog: Bringing MEMS Design To The Mainstream. The article states that some factors are needed for a greater use of MEMS as a component in systems–standard MEMS design flows, integration between MEMS and EDA software tools, standard MEMS foundry processes. Interesting stuff. What do you think, MEMSbloggers? Would this spark […]
