Overview:
In this seminar you’ll learn how, and why, integrated MEM’s sensors work to detect motion, acceleration, incline, and rotation. You’ll also learn how to apply them to obtain accurate measurements in up to six degrees of freedom, in a range of applications. We’ll discuss the noise, bandwidth, temperature impacts, dynamic range, and considerations of the microcontroller and DSP interface. We’ll also examine the benefits and issues of using MEM’s-based solutions with integrated signal chain to simplify the sensor system design.
