Ultra-low-power 6-Axis MEMS sensor modules for “always-on” motion-sensing
ST’s new ultra-low-power LSM6DSL and LSM6DSM highly miniaturized 6-axis MEMS inertial modules reduce power consumption by as much as 50% over current-generation products, enabling a much longer “always-on” motion-sensing that results in an enhanced user experience for battery-powered applications.
In addition to supporting main OS requirements, these modules offer real, virtual and batch sensors with up to 4 Kbytes for dynamic data batching for advanced pedometer, timestamp, wrist tilt and many other smart functions. Specifically designed for OIS applications, the LSM6DSM comes with a new low-noise gyroscope and configurable filter as well as a dedicated additional processing and serial port that together improve camera-OIS performance. Both devices are available in 14-lead LGA modules (2.5 x 3 x 0.83 mm) that are pin-and-footprint compatible with LSM6DS3/H devices.
