InvenSense™ Introduces Family of ‘AlwaysOn’ MEMS Automatic Activity Recognition Solutions for the Wearable Sensor Market

InvenSense, Inc. (NYSE: INVN), the leading provider of MotionTracking sensor system on chip (SoC) and Sound devices, announces the next generation ultra low-power motion and audio family of solutions enabling a complete ‘AlwaysOn’ wearable experience. The InvenSense ICM-20655 (world’s lowest power 6-axis motion SoC), the ICM-20955 (world’s lowest power 9-axis motion SoC) and the ICS-43430 (best in class I2S microphone) are sampling to select customers. InvenSense continues to ship in volume its current generation of 6- and 9-axis Automatic Activity Recognition solutions.

The ICM-20655 and ICM-20955 motion solutions are paired with the InvenSense Automatic Activity Recognition (AAR) software library, resulting in ‘AlwaysOn’ activity detection including: run, walk, bike, stationary, and sleep on a wrist-worn wearable device. InvenSense’s ultra low-power 2mW 6-axis motion is enabling a new generation of activity trackers. Beyond providing more accurate pedometer functionality, combining low-power gyroscopes and accelerometers with advanced AAR software, enables detection of a broader set of activities ideal for next generation smart watch, fitness band, and fitness watch applications.

The InvenSense ICS-43430 is a high performance, low power, 65 dB SNR I2S digital output MEMS microphone addressing the growing market needs of ‘AlwaysOn’ voice user interfaces needed by today’s wearables. The I2S interface allows the ICS-43430 to connect directly to application processors or DSPs, without the need for an audio codec in the system.

“InvenSense’s pioneering ‘AlwaysOn’ audio and motion solutions are synergistic with the Internet of Things (IoT) requisite to track behavior, enhance contextual awareness, and help sensor-driven decision analytics,” said Ali Foughi, Vice President of Marketing and Business Development at InvenSense. “InvenSense created a paradigm shift by taking the industry from simple step counting to precise activity recognition with our initial introduction of low power gyroscope based wearable solutions. With the advent of a 2mW 6-axis motion, InvenSense is raising the bar yet again for ‘AlwaysOn’ power conscious wearable devices.

InvenSense is exhibiting in booth #31407 in South Hall 3 at the 2014 International Consumer Electronics Show taking place in Las Vegas from January 7 - 10, 2014.

As someone who has been dedicated to automation and Application Release Automation (ARA) technology for almost six years now, one of the most common questions I get asked regards Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS).

In most cases, it is convenient to have some human interaction with a web (micro-)service, no matter how small it is. A traditional approach would be to create an HTTP interface, where user requests will be dispatched and HTML/CSS pages must be served.

Instead, talking to a web service in a chat-bot mode would be muc...

It's easy to assume that your app will run on a fast and reliable network. The reality for your app's users, though, is often a slow, unreliable network with spotty coverage. What happens when the network doesn't work, or when the device is in airplane mode? You get unhappy, frustrated users. An offline-first app is an app that works, without error, when there is no network connection.
