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 FXLC95000CL Xtrinsic motion-sensing platform integrates a MEMS accelerometer and a 32-bit ColdFire MCU providing autonomous sensing simultaneously with local compute capability to manage other sensors. This intelligent platform is ideal for use in mobile handsets, e-readers, industrial, medical and wellness activity monitors.
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.
