Finding iNEMO

Back when we looked at sensor hubs last year, the trajectory of that discussion took us to the point of sensors integrated with a microcontroller on a single chip. ST Microelectronics had announced the technology used for that example. At the time, their announcement focus was on Windows 8 HID compatibility, and there was a lot of generic discussion about the promise of the technology, but I have to confess to having not noticed much of the way of specific product information (and I didn’t dig, since those specifics weren’t my main focus).

Well, I later found out why: no product was included in the technology announcement – then. One subsequently has: the iNEMO-A. This device combines a 3-axis accelerometer with an ultra-low-power ARM Cortex M0 processor. Connections are available for external gyroscopes, magnetometers, and pressure sensors as well.

This is the first of a family of devices that will be marketed under the iNEMO name. Various permutations and combinations of integrated sensors for different applications are apparently on their way, although presumably the connections available to external sensors maintain the potential for Windows 8 HID compliance.

You can get more info on their first device in their release.

Power Profiler II

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and Nordic Semiconductor

If you are working on a low-power IoT design, you are going to face power issues that can get quite complicated. Addressing these issues earlier in your design process can save you a lot of time, effort, and frustration. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Kristian Sæther from Nordic Semiconductor about the details of the new Nordic Power Profiler Kit II - including how it can measure actual current, help you configure the right design settings, and show you a visualized power profile for your next design.
