AH-6100LR sensor

Epson Toyocom Corp. has developed the low-noise, low-power product AH-6100LR six-axis sensor that features shock resistance 5,000g, 6.1mA current consumption, and low power draw to meet the requirements of low power systems.

It comprises a three-axis QMEMS quartz gyro-sensor and an extremely stable three-axis accelerometer within a single package. Epson offers a growing line of highly accurate, stable gyro-sensors, such as the XV-3500CB, for use in a variety of applications, including high-quality camera shake correction and compact high-precision navigation systems. The AH-6100LR was developed by leveraging these technologies for high-integrity motion tracing and motion tracking applications.

Hand, person, or object motion tracing and tracking systems are being explored as core technologies for next-generation applications in a variety of fields. These systems require sensors with a wide dynamic range of control, since a wide range of motion, from low speed to high speed, needs to be detected. The AH-6100LR has a wide dynamic range of 81dB to 83dB (200Hz output bandwidth), enabling high-precision control via accurate tracing and helping improve the certainty of motion recognition.

The high-integrity analogue signal output of the AH-6100LR has the flexibility to meet the need for mixed-signal processing in customer systems. Customers can thus process signals in the best way for any given application, and realise designs with low noise and broadband output.

The new six-axis sensor packs critical application performance features into a small package. Among these features are 5,000g of shock resistance and current consumption of just 6.1mA, a more than sufficiently low power draw to meet the requirements of low power systems.

Samples of the new AH-6100LR will become available in February 2010. Commercial development is scheduled for May 2010.
