Watch the recording to learn how a revolutionary new motion sensor with built-in Machine Learning processing capabilities is transforming embedded sensor design.

During the presentation we introduce the LSM6DSOX iNEMO™ sensor from ST, a 6-axis high-performance inertial measurement unit (IMU) designed for gaming, wearables, consumer electronics and other IoT battery-powered applications.

The LSM6DSOX contains finite-state machine logic (FSM) and a Machine Learning Core (MLC) that allow classification of motion data based on known patterns. These unique features relieve the main processor from the first stage of activity tracking, saving energy to accelerate motion-based applications. Devices equipped with the LSM6DSOX can deliver a convenient and responsive "always-on" user experience without sacrificing battery runtime.

The device also has more internal memory than conventional sensors and a state-of-the-art high-speed I3C digital interface, allowing shorter connection times and longer periods between interactions with the main controller, resulting in even greater energy savings. The LSM6DSOX boosts performance at 0.55 mA in high-performance mode while offering low-power features for an optimal motion tracking experience.

More on the iNEMO™ 6-axis IMU with Machine Learning Core

The LSM6DSOX is a system-in-package featuring a 3D digital accelerometer and a 3D digital gyroscope boosting performance at 0.55 mA in high-performance mode and enabling always-on low-power features for an optimal motion experience for the consumer.

The LSM6DSOX supports main OS requirements, offering real, virtual and batch sensors with 9 kbytes for dynamic data batching. ST’s family of MEMS sensor modules leverages the robust and mature manufacturing processes already used for the production of micro-machined accelerometers and gyroscopes. The various sensing elements are manufactured using specialized micro-machining processes, while the IC interfaces are developed using CMOS technology that allows the design of a dedicated circuit which is trimmed to better match the characteristics of the sensing element.

The LSM6DSOX has a full-scale acceleration range of ±2/±4/±8/±16 g and an angular rate range of ±125/±250/±500/±1000/±2000 dps.

The LSM6DSOX fully supports EIS and OIS applications as the module includes a dedicated configurable signal processing path for OIS and auxiliary SPI, configurable for both the gyroscope and accelerometer. The LSM6DSOX OIS can be configured from the Auxiliary SPI and primary interface (SPI / I²C & MIPI I3CSM).

High robustness to mechanical shock makes the LSM6DSOX the preferred choice of system designers for the creation and manufacturing of reliable products. The LSM6DSOX is available in a plastic land grid array (LGA) package.
