Expanding on its more than 30 year sensing history, Freescale has unveiled a new era of sensing with the Xtrinsic portfolio. This new brand of sensors is designed with the right combination of intelligent integration, logic and customizable software on the platform to deliver smarter, more differentiated applications.
Freescale sensors that are classified under the Xtrinsic brand exhibit integrated algorithms or are integrated platforms with multiple sensors and a processor that provide a high degree of contextual awareness and decision making. Xtrinsic sensing solutions represent products across the automotive, consumer, medical and industrial markets.
Freescale’s Freedom development platform is a small, low-power evaluation system based on Kinetis MCUs that encompasses accelerometers, pressure sensors, magnetometers and a gyroscope for all your sensing needs. One of the sensor board options (FRDM-FXS-MULTI-B) offers wireless with 12-axis capability.
The Freescale-McLaren engine control unit (ECU) has powered more than one million fuel-injected miles of NASCAR Sprint Cup Series™ racing without a single ECU failure. Virtually no other sport tests the performance and reliability of a product harder than NASCAR®. Extreme heat. Vibration. Five hundred miles of racing at 200 mph. NASCAR trusts Freescale to get the job done.
Freescale’s FXLC95000CL Xtrinsic intelligent sensor is among the 2013 EDN annual list of this year's Hot 100 Products! See the article covering the Xtrinsic intelligent sensor hub. The FXLC95000CL has more flash memory, a high-accuracy integrated MEMS 3-axis accelerometer and a dedicated 32-bit embedded ColdFire MCU to manage all sensor data.
