STMicroelectronics is extending its commitment to drive advanced automation and the industrial internet of things (IIoT) by adding new high stability MEMS sensors with 10 year product longetivity assurance.
The new sensors to be made available during 2018 begin with the IIS3DHHC, a three axis acceralometer optimized for high measurement resolution and stability to ensure accuracy over time with temperature. The IIS3DHHC targets precision inclinometers in antenna-positioning mechanisms for communication systems, STRUCTURAL HEALTH MONITORING (SHM) equipment for keeping buildings and bridges safe, and stabilizers or levelers for a with variety of industrial platforms. Its long term accuracy and robustness are also ideal for high sensitivity tilt and security sensors as well as, image stabilization in high end digital still cameras (DSCs).
In addition to industrial sensors, the program covers STM32 microcontrollers, motor drivers, analog components, power convertors, LeDs and existing MEMs sensors that will be supported for at least 10 years.
“These high quality industrial sensors leverage our investments in MEMs design and high yield fabrication processes to deliver superior performance with low ownership costs for applications where the highest precision, repeatability and robustness are critical”, said Andrea Onetti Group VP and General Manager, MEMS Sensors Division, STMicroelectronics. “We will continue to introduce new times of precision sensors for industrial applications in the coming months, covered by our 10 year longetivity commitment, including combination sensors, specialized sensors and complete inertial modules”.
The IIS3DHHC is in production in high quality 16 lead 5mm*5mm*1.7mm ceramic LGA package, priced for $4.50 for orders of 1000 pieces.
