ROHM Group company Kionix recently announced the availability of accelerometers, KX132-1211 and KX134-1211, ideal for high accuracy, low power motion sensing applications in the industrial equipment and consumer wearable markets.
The KX134-1211 is a 3-axis accelerometer optimized for machine condition monitoring. Advanced Data Path (ADP) technology allows noise filtering and sensor signal processing normally carried out by the MCU to be performed by the accelerometer. They contribute to reducing MCU load and power consumption together with improved application performance. In addition, to meet industrial requirements, the sensing frequency and acceleration detection ranges have been increased to 8,500Hz and ±64g, respectively, while supporting operating temperatures up to 105°C. At the same time, the sensor itself consumes less than half the current (0.67μA in low power mode) compared to conventional products (more info).
