Kionix (Ithaca, NY) offers the KMX61G accelerometer-magnetometer sensor and sensor fusion software that delivers gyro emulation using 550 μA of power. The six-axis device can provide nine-axis accelerometer, magnetometer, and gyro outputs. The system features 512-byte FIFO buffer with watermarking, embedded temperature sensor, and low-power, embedded motion wakeup function. The system offers a user-programmable, full-scale accelerometer range; user-selectable ODR from 0.781 Hz to 1.6 kHz, magnetometer algorithms for auto-calibration and MI rejection, and supply voltages between 1.8 and 3.3V.
