MEMSIC, Inc. Key Developments

MEMSIC Inc. Unveils New Family of Acceleration and Tip-Over Sensor Components, MXD6240 and 41AU, MXC6244AU, MXC6245XU

MEMSIC Inc. has unveiled a new family of acceleration and tip-over sensor components that includes four new sensors, the MXD6240 and 41AU, MXC6244AU, MXC6245XU. These new sensors provide tip-over and acceleration sensing in a wide range of Automotive, Industrial and Consumer applications, such as motorcycle and off-road vehicle tip-over detection, vehicle navigation and Digital SLR camera horizontal position detection. The 624x Family uses MEMSIC's proprietary thermal accelerometer technology that utilizes heated gas molecules to sense acceleration instead of a mechanical beam structure, the transducer exhibits a natural low-pass frequency response with virtually no mechanical resonance and extremely high accuracy over a range of temperatures. The MXD6240 and MXD6241AU are autonomous inclination sensors with 8 built-in, pin-programmable tip-over angle thresholds from 40 to 70 degrees making them ideal for tip-over applications where no microcontroller is available. If the device orientation with respect to vertical exceeds the programmed threshold angle, the digital output changes state to alert the system to a tip-over or fall-down event. In addition to the transducer's inherent low-pass response, an internal anti-vibration filter provides >45dB attenuation above 25Hz, and >60dB attenuation above 50Hz, setting it apart from all other tip-over sensors in the market. The MXC6244AU and MXC6245XU are complete 2 axis I2C interface accelerometers each with 1 mg of resolution. The MXC6244AU is ±8g full scale range device. It includes the internal anti-vibration filter and the 8 angle thresholds. They are programmable through the I2C interface. The MXC6245XU is a ±2g full scale range device and is targeted at cost sensitive applications not requiring the programmable anti-vibration filter or the 8 programmable tip-over angle thresholds. It offers 12 bits of resolution (1 mg) and has the same outstanding over temperature bias performance of typically 0.1 mg/C. The 624x family offers a full range of functionality, features and performance to serve the diverse needs of different applications.

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.
