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.
The Freescale Xtrinsic MMA8491Q ultra-low-power accelerometer enables smart meters, home appliances, gaming, asset tracking applications and remote controls through integrated tilt algorithms and auto-on/auto-sleep energy efficient operation housed in a specialized industrial package. The Xtrinsic MMA8491Q accelerometer is ideal for applications where tilting degrees need to be accurately measured.
Freescale Xtrinsic e-compass sensor fusion software has been awarded Product of the Year by Electronic Products Magazine. Empower yourself with C source code using Xtrinsic magnetic calibration and tilt-compensated e-compass software free of charge.
Freescale expert Mark Pedley has written an article describing how you can use high-performance consumer accelerometers and magnetometers to add a tilt-compensated e-compass to end products.
