MEMSIC, Inc. Key Developments

MEMSIC Inc. Introduces Next Generation Three-Axis Magnetic Sensor, MMC3630KJ

MEMSIC Inc. announced the availability of its MMC3630KJ, an ultra-small size, BGA package, magnetometer for portable devices. The company launched a series of highly accurate, reliable, and ultra-small package, 3-axis AMR magnetometers: MMC3630KJ series. This new series of AMR magnetometers targets major global mobile device designers and manufacturers, along with other industry verticals requiring high performance motion sensing. The MMC3630KJ series magnetometer includes an integrated monolithic 3-axis AMR sensor and a signal conditioning ASIC into an ultra-small (1.2x1.2x0.5mm) BGA package. The MMC3630KJ is a design in AMR technology with the ability to reach ±30G range, and more than 5x better noise level compared to other technologies. With 600Hz magnetic sensing bandwidth, the MMC3630KJ is able to provide better than ±10accuracy in eCompass applications. The design also has drastically lower system level power consumption and processing time. The MMC3630KJ series magnetometer is perfectly matched for portable devices, which are more sensitive to size and price. The series also includes a self-degaussing feature, which can eliminate the output drift due to temperature change and residual magnetic from ambient magnetic field. The series also includes an interruption feature, which can be used for motion detection and data acquisition ready notifications to lower system-level power consumption.

MEMSIC Inc. Announces Launch of MTLT Series of Inclination and Tilt Sensors

MEMSIC Inc. announced the launch of its new MTLT series of inclination and tilt sensors. Samples of the first three family members in MTLT series, the MTLT110S-R, MTLT105S-R and MTLT105D-R are currently available for evaluation. All three products are IP67 rated inclinometers with an integrated RS-232 interface and flying lead cable operating from a 9 V to 32 V single supply. The MTLT105S and MTLT110S are designed for applications needing < 0.5 degree and < 1.0 degree accuracy, respectively, over the full operating temperature range. The MTLT105D gives customers a new cost effective choice that does not sacrifice response time. The MTLT sensors also include programmable tilt alarms for tilt safety applications. The alarm can be programmed to be triggered to activate when the tilt exceeds a specified threshold. The tilt alarm can also be used to lock out controls or trigger an alarm or warning light. It is an all-in-one tilt safety solution eliminating the need for an external microprocessor to interpret tilt angles. Each unit is fully calibrated over temperature providing confidence in safety applications.

MEMSIC Unveils MFC2030 Bi-Directional Flow Sensor

MEMSIC Inc. has announced the availability of its MFC2030 bi-directional flow sensor for applications such as analytical instruments, anesthesia and other medical flow devices, process control, and natural gas measurement. MEMSIC Inc. utilizes its highly advanced and successful MEMS thermal accelerometer platform, of which it has shipped hundreds of millions of units into a variety of automotive and consumer applications, as the flow sensing element in this high performance flow sensor. The MFC2030 leverages this experience, technology and economy of scale to offer a high performance, reliable and cost effective flow sensor. MEMSIC was the first and only company to integrate a MEMS inertial sensor and signal processing circuitry together on a standard monolithic CMOS wafer. This same advanced MEMS technology and manufacturing process are leveraged into this advanced flow sensor solution. In addition to exceptionally low power consumption, a MEMS suspended-bridge microstructure enables a highly sensitive flow measurement. This is due to the low thermal mass and conductivity of the bridge structure, which results in gas flow becoming the primary means to transfer heat via convection from the heater to the thermopiles. This effective and rugged structure, when coupled with advanced CMOS circuitry and a 16-bit on-chip A/D, provides an exceptionally wide flow dynamic range, which is critical for a wide range of precision industrial, consumer and medical applications. The MFC2030 is highly configurable, with multiple mounting options including manifold mount, BSP and NPT fittings.
