Microchip MM7150 Motion Module PICtail / PICtail Plus Evaluation Board
Developing applications with motion sensors can be difficult. Designers need to develop complex algorithms to filter, compensate and fuse the raw data from the sensors, which requires specialized knowledge and can be very resource intensive.
Microchip makes it easy to design motion-based applications with our MM7150 Motion Module PICtail™/ PICtail Plus Evaluation Board using Microchip’s 16- and 32-bit PIC® microcontrollers. The board can be plugged directly into Microchip’s Explorer 16 Development Board. The MM7150 PICtail Evaluation Board is based on Microchip’s MM7150 Motion Module which integrates 9-axis motion sensors with a motion coprocessor into a single platform. The SSC7150 Motion Coprocessor is pre-programmed with integrated calibration and sensor fusion algorithms to provide raw and calibrated motion-compensated 3D data. The MM7150 Motion Module PICtail Evaluation Board allows engineers to speed designs to market and reduce the risk of launching motion for embedded and Internet of Things (IoT) applications.
- Motion Coprocessors filter, compensate, and fuse raw 9-axis sensor data -> Improved system performance with smoother, faster, and accurate orientation data
- Self-calibrating over time - > Improves estimates of orientation
- Low power -> suitable for battery powered applications
- Outputs position & motion data over standard I2C™ connection -> Works with most MCUs with I2C
Possible end applications:
- Internet of Things (IoT)
- Physical Therapy
- Smart Farms
