Making Motion Easy

Developing applications with motion/position sensors can require sophisticated knowledge and significant resources.

Because this can be difficult, Microchip has developed a solution that make it easy to design motion-based applications. The MM7150 motion module integrates Microchip’s SSC7150 motion coprocessor along with the 9-axis motion sensors. It comes pre-programmed with sophisticated sensor fusion algorithms which intelligently filter, compensate and combine the raw sensor data to provide highly accurate position and orientation information.



SSC7102/ SSC7150 Motion Coprocessors

Key Benefits



  • Motion coprocessors filter, compensate and fuse raw 9-axis sensor data - Improved system performance with smoother, faster and accurate orientation data
  • Self-calibrating over time - Improves estimates of orientation
  • Low power - Suitable for battery powered applications
  • Outputs position and motion data over standard I2C connection - Works with most MCUs with I2C
  • SSC7102 motion coprocessor Windows® 8.1 certification – Proven outputs

Applications



  • Internet of Things (IoT)
  • Gaming
  • Remotes
  • Robots
  • Wearables
  • Physical therapy
  • Toys
  • Stabilization/Positioning
  • Transportation
  • Smart farms
  • Windows-based tablets, ultrabooks, notebooks and All-in-Ones (AiO)
