Hillcrest Module Targets Wearable Computing
ROCKVILLE, Md. -- Hillcrest Labs, a market leader in multiplatform motion software and products, today announced the newest addition to its family of Freespace(R) Sensor Modules: the FSM-9, a fully-integrated 9-axis inertial measurement unit (IMU). The FSM-9 is a turnkey solution that combines MEMS sensor hardware with Hillcrest’s Freespace MotionEngine(TM) Universal sensor fusion software and a 32-bit microcontroller (MCU) in a compact surface-mount package. The FSM-9 is designed to enable fast development of high quality motion controlled products.
“The FSM-9 is an off-the-shelf motion solution that delivers ultimate performance for the rapidly growing markets where head-mounted displays and other wearable computers are used,” said Chad Lucien, senior vice president of sales and marketing at Hillcrest Labs. “Our ultra-high performance 9-axis sensor fusion and calibration software, low power system, and low cost package, enables customers to easily and quickly integrate motion into products for these markets and a wide range of other applications.”
