Switzerland : Ultra-Low-Power, Context-Aware Motion-Recognition Platform to Result from STMicroelectronics and Movea Cooperation [TendersInfo (India)]
(TendersInfo (India) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) STMicroelectronics, a global semiconductor leader serving customers across the spectrum of electronics applications, and Movea (www.movea.com), a leading provider of data-fusion and motion-processing technologies for consumer electronics, today announced their agreement to integrate Movea s SmartMotion technology into the STM32F401 microcontroller operating as a low-power sensor-hub controller.
The integration of Movea s high-accuracy motion-processing models into the STM32F401 will enable mobile-device manufacturers and application developers to deliver compelling context-aware applications and services, such as pedestrian navigation, activity monitoring and more. The high-performance STM32F401 and its power-optimized architecture, together with Movea s advanced motion features deliver an unmatched state-of-art, ultra-low-power solution for Always-On Applications.
Our objective is to provide STM32 microcontrollers leveraging high signal processing and math computation, while reducing power consumption, said Michel Buffa, General Manager Microcontroller Division, STMicroelectronics. This effort highlights the value of our STM32F4 implementation, as it delivers extremely accurate sensor fusion that is optimized for mobile usage. Embedding Movea IP in an STM32F401 will offload sensor-hub tasks from the application processor, reducing overall power consumption and opening a new world of opportunities for the smart mobile devices of tomorrow.
The combination of ST s low-power processing capability, STM32F401 high-performance computing architecture, together with Movea s industry-leading motion-processing capability, offers a compelling advantage to the mobile and tablet markets, where always on applications such as fitness tracking and context awareness have an enormous impact on battery life.
Integrating Movea s firmware onto the STM32F401 sensor-management platform aims to enable unprecedented functionality and services. Devices equipped with the combination will anticipate user s needs and provide additional services based on their activity, location and surroundings. For example, these devices will help users launch applications using simple gestures without having to unlock the phone, accurately track their daily physical activity, and allow indoor pedestrian navigation and other location-based services. With users spending up to 80% of their time indoors, monitoring and tracking of indoor location and activity is critical to delivering the promise of location-based services. Movea s Pedestrian Dead Reckoning offers a real low-power solution when run on this high-performance, power-optimized sensor hub from ST.
