Delivers key Wellness/Fitness Sensor related Context and Analytics
Required from Today’s Smart Watches, Children Trackers and Activity
SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan. 4, 2017--
Inc., (NYSE: INVN), a leading provider of MEMS sensor platform
solutions, announced the InvenSense ICM-20648, a 6-axis inertial
measurement unit (IMU) with an advanced software stack, updated for
wrist worn wearable devices delivering many of the key features required
from today’s smart wrist worn wearable devices. The ICM-20648 includes
InvenSense’s 6-axis integrated MEMS (3-axis accelerometer + 3-axis
gyroscope) motion sensors and InvenSense’s Digital Motion Processor
(DMP) blocks for efficient lower power sensor processing in a small 3mm
x 3mm x 0.9mm 24-QFN package. The updated wearable software stack for
the ICM-20648 which is run in the IMU’s DMP at low power and in
conjunction with a Host MCU or Apps Processor, delivers activity
recognition (walk, run, bike, still), step counter, Bring-to-See (B2S)
gesture, in addition to the standard Android fusion stack. The
InvenSense wrist wearable IMU speeds an OEMs time-to-market by
delivering the baseline features required for today’s wrist worn device
that require inertial sensor processing.
Today, the wrist worn wearables market requires OEMs to deliver wellness
and fitness related services, a key reason the market traction for these
devices is increasing. To enable our customer’s to deliver on that
promise, InvenSense’s new updated wearable software stack delivers step
count and activity classification tuned for wrist performance.
Additionally, the B2S gesture is a necessity as it is needed to turn
on/off the high power display for battery management of the device. The
ICM-20648 can be connected to the main Host MCU (or AP) of the system
and, by using a simple driver, can access the features that are derived
internally in the DMP from the sensor data fusion and feature extraction.
“The included software stack enables the OEM to focus on their own
unique differentiating features, in addition to those offered by the
ICM-20648,” said Eitan Medina, vice president of marketing and product
management at InvenSense. “InvenSense is committed to deliver the
hardware and software solutions to enable our customers the fastest time
The InvenSense 6-axis ICM-20648 wearable platform is sampling today and
will be available to the wider distribution channel in Q2 2017.
