Epson Toyocom Intros Smallest 6-Axis Sensor
El Segundo, CA — Epson Toyocom Corporation's U.S.-based Timing Products Division has introduced the AH-6100LR, calling it the world's smallest 6-axis sensor. This low-noise, low-power product comprises a 3-axis QMEMS1 quartz gyro-sensor and an extremely stable 3-axis accelerometer within a single package.

The company offers a growing line of highly accurate, stable gyro-sensors for use in a variety of applications, including high-quality camera shake correction and compact high-precision navigation systems. The AH-6100LR was developed by leveraging these technologies for high-integrity motion tracing and motion tracking applications. Hand, person, or object motion tracing and tracking systems are core technologies for next-generation applications in a variety of fields.

These systems require sensors with a wide dynamic range of control, since a wide range of motion, from low speed to high speed, needs to be detected. The AH-6100LR has a wide dynamic range of 81 to 83dB (200Hz output bandwidth), enabling high-precision control with accurate tracing and helping improve the certainty of motion recognition. The device's high-integrity analog signal output provides the flexibility to meet the need for mixed signal processing in customer systems. Customers are now able to process signals in the best way for any given application, and realize designs with low noise and broadband output.

The new 6-axis sensor packs critical application performance features into a small package (10.0 x 8.0 x 3.8mm). Among these features are 5,000g of shock resistance and current consumption of just 6.1 mA, a more than sufficiently low power draw to meet the requirements of low power systems.
