Wireless sensor module is only 13.5x13.5mm

The Samtec nMode wireless sensor module is a production-ready solution that allows engineers to remotely sense and measure inertial, environmental and acoustical parameters.

The 13.5x13.5mm unit contains a MEMS accelerometer, gyroscope, magnetometer, pressure sensor, and a MEMS microphone, all from STMicroelectronics. The standalone node is suitable for products such as wearables, gaming accessories, and smart-home or Internet-of-Things (IoT) devices. Samtec has collaborated with ST to position the nMode wireless sensor module as an FCC-certified production version of ST’s SensorTile development kit. It leverages standard ICs and, like ST’s SensorTile, it’s compatible with the STM32 ecosystem through STM32Cube support. The nMode core system is based on a an STM32L476 Ultra-low-power with FPU ARM Cortex-M4 MCU, a BlueNRG-MS Bluetooth low energy network processor, an integrated balun filter, and the different MEMS sensors. The Samtec nMode wireless sensor module (OMS-1-1313) will be available in Spring 2017.
