MEMS sensor solutions target consumer and industrial IoT
The new contract covers Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA). InvenSense/TDK’s comprehensive portfolio features sensor systems such as MEMS motion sensors, MEMS Microphones, and ultrasonic Time-of-Flight (ToF) range sensor solutions. InvenSense offers sophisticated MEMS analogue and digital microphones with their SmartSound platform meeting the growing demands of high-performance audio in markets such as home automation and the Internet of Things. The recently introduced SmartSonic platform comprises ultrasonic (Time of Flight) sensors utilizing a tiny ultrasonic transducer chip to send out an ultrasonic pulse, and then listen for echoes returning from targets in the sensor’s field-of-view. By calculating the distance based on the ToF and speed of sound, the sensor can determine the distance of an object relative to a device and trigger a programmed behaviour. These ToF sensors are intended for consumer electronics, AR/VR, robotics, drones, IoT, automotive, and industrial market segments. InvenSense’s SmartMotion platform of MEMS motion devices enables users to integrate a motion interface capability directly into products in a straightforward manner and with minimal development cost and effort. Arrow is now offering TDK’s DK-42605 development kit and the new T-series microphones from InvenSense to address this fast-growing and emerging opportunity. The TDK DK_CH101 development kit will also be available from Arrow in Q1 2020.
