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 2014 “Best of Sensors Expo Awards” focuses on sensor applications, excellence among engineers, and sensor technology innovations. Freescale is winner of the Bronze award in the “innovations” category for the FXLC95000CL Xtrinsic Intelligent Motion-Sensing Platform!
Demand continues to surge for sensors as Freescale ships its two-billionth sensor. Key drivers of growth include Freescale’s breadth of portfolio, the expanding industrial and medical markets, and the increasing deployment of intelligent sensing in IoT applications.
One segment of Freescale’s Xtrinsic 3-axis accelerometer portfolio is in the under 20 g range with fast response times, low current consumption, and low voltage operation in small profile packages. These accelerometers address highly accurate motion detection for orientation, shake, tap, double tap, fall, tilt, motion, positioning, shock or vibration.
