ARM-Based 32-Bit MCUs

STMicroelectronics (Geneva, Switzerland) has announced that the roadmap for its breakthrough STM32 family of 32-bit MCUs based on ARM® Cortex-MT processor cores will include new devices centered on the Cortex-M4 and the Cortex-M0 cores from ARM. In addition, ST also announced the availability of its new STM32 F-2 series MCUs that unleash the performance of the Cortex-M3 core. The Cortex-M4 from ARM is an upwardly compatible version of the Cortex-M3, offering DSP instructions and a Floating Point Unit (FPU). The core will be used in new high-performance variants of STM32 products to be sampled in 2011. ST's new STM32 F-2 microcontroller series combines ST's advanced 90nm process technology with the company's innovative Adaptive Real-Time memory accelerator (ART AcceleratorT) to unleash the Cortex-M3 core's maximum processing performance.

3-Axis Acceleration Sensor

Saelig Company, Inc. (Pittsford, NY) has introduced JoyWarrior24F14, a high-resolution USB-connected 3-axis acceleration sensor with 125μg sensitivity. The new USB-powered JoyWarrior24F14 offers acceleration resolution down to 125μg. JoyWarrior24F14 modules are based on a MEMS sensor and measure with 14-bit resolution in the ranges ±1g, ±1.5g, ±2g, ±3g, ±4g, ±8g, or ±16g, delivering 125 results per second. Because JoyWarrior24F14 enumerates and works as a joystick, accessing the data can be easily done via the operating system's joystick API without installing any specific drivers. The included software operates on Windows and MacOS X platforms and contains a configuration tool to set the sensor parameters, with tilt angle measuring, a calibration tool, and a simple data recorder. Small size (30 x 33 x 5mm) and a low mass (
