InvenSense MPU-6555

01.05.2014

InvenSense Introduces Motion Sensors for Wrist-Worn Devices with Automatic Activity Recognition (AAR™)

The new MPU-6555, available from Glyn High-Tech Distribution, is InvenSense’s first generation 6-axis (3-axis gyroscope + 3-axis accelerometer) activity detection device, working in conjunction with their Automatic Activity Recognition library (AAR™) in a 3x3x0.9mm (24-pin QFN) package.

Activity recognition is the identification of personal activities by analysing a user’s motion. It uses trained data from the user, then compresses the data into a decision tree format that can be used to identify when the activity occurs again in the future. Simply put, automatic activity recognition allows a wearable sensor device to track your activities without the user having to tell the device that he or she is switching from one activity to another (e.g. from jogging to biking to walking). The InvenSense low power sensor can detect run, walk, bike, no-motion, and sleep analysis on a wrist-worn wearable device.

E-Paper Manufacturer Pervasive Displays Appoints Glyn as Distributor

Leading e-paper display panel manufacturer Pervasive Displays has partnered with Glyn High-Tech Distribution to be its distributor in Australia and New Zealand.

Electronic paper is often considered to be more comfortable to read than conventional displays. This is due to the stable image, which does not need to be refreshed constantly, the wider viewing angle, and the fact that it reflects ambient light rather than emitting its own light. An ideal e-paper display can be read in direct sunlight without the image appearing to fade. The contrast ratio in available displays might be described as similar to that of newspaper, though newly-developed implementations are slightly better.
