ST will provide inertial sensor technology while Qualcomm will provide processing hardware and software support for ST’s inertial sensors including its iNEMO inertial module.
ST said the companies expect the collaboration to enable the rapid introduction of Android smartphones based on Qualcomm’s Snapdragon processors. Reference software is already available for OEMs developing smartphones, ST said.
Th agreement covers all of ST’s inertial modules and motion, environmental, and acoustic sensors but initial efforts will focus on supporting ST’s LSM6DS3 in Qualcomm reference designs.
The LSM6DS3 is an always-on, low-power inertial module combining a 3D accelerometer and a 3D gyroscope. It supports extended battery life with Qualcomm All-Ways Aware hub for Android background sensor functions and numerous value-added features including the fusion of sensors with location technology, modem, and camera subsystems.
