The 17 mm square MM7150 Motion Module from Microchip Technology is a complete, small form-factor board containing a 3-axis accelerometer, 6-axis digital compass and gyroscope sensors pre-programmed with integrated calibration and sensor fusion algorithms.  Connections to the board include I2C, power and ground. The board operates at 3.3 V and consumes about 7.68 mA in active mode and around 70 µA in deep sleep.

Features:

  • Read position & motion data over I2C
  • Small size 17x17
  • Pre-programmed and calibrated
  • Single sided – can be soldered down
  • SSC7150 motion coprocessor with integrated sensor fusion
  • 9-axis Sensors (accelerometer, magnetometer, gyroscope) 

 Applications:

  • Internet of Things (IoT)
  • Robots
  • Patient/Animal Monitoring
  • Toys
  • Stabilization & Positioning
  • Sports Monitoring
  • TV Remotes

According to Patrick Johnson, vice president of Microchip’s Computing Products Group “Our new motion module makes it easy and cost effective to add motion capability to an endless variety of embedded and IoT applications because the MM7150 motion module is pre-programmed with the key algorithms, virtually anyone can add this capability without needing to spend years becoming motion experts.”

Microchip’s MM7150 is available now priced at $26.76 each in 1,000 unit quantities
