The KMX61G is the industry’s first consumer level micro-amp magnetic gyro, providing a 9-axis solution from a single chip 6-axis magnetometer-accelerometer device. This high-performance product is enhanced with Kionix’s proprietary sensor fusion software and auto-calibration algorithms to deliver highly accurate emulated gyro outputs with significantly lower power consumption than a traditional gyro.
Kionix sensor fusion software is scalable, meaning it is designed to run on either an application processor or a sensor hub. Now, through our partnership with Atmel, we’ve added support for the new ARM-based SAM D20 sensor hub microcontrollers from Atmel. These new microcontrollers are flexible, easy to use, low power sensor hubs. Plus they come with a full set of tools from Atmel to help you get going fast. When matched with the Kionix KMX61G Micro-amp gyro, the result is a low power, high performance 9 axis solution for a wide range of applications and products including IoT, wearables, mobile phones, tablets, ultrabooks & convertibles and more.
Atmel SAM D20 - Bringing AVR Ease-of-Use to Cortex M0+ Microcontrollers
The new Atmel® SAM D20 family—based on the ARM® Cortex®- M0+ core—builds on decades of innovation and experience in embedded Flash microcontroller (MCU) technology. It not only sets a new benchmark for flexibility and ease-of-use but also combines the performance and energy efficiency of the ARM® Cortex®-M0+ core with an optimized architecture and peripheral set. This truly differentiated general-purpose MCU family is ideal for many low-power, cost-sensitive industrial and consumer applications.
Key features include:
- High performance
- Rich peripheral set
- Low Power
- <2µA RAM retention and RTC
- Options between internal and external oscillators and on-the-fly clock switching
- Free software tools from Atmel
