PNI Sensor Wins "Product of the Year" Award for SENtral Motion Co-Processor

Electronic Products Magazine Selects SENtral From Thousands of Products

LAS VEGAS, NV -- (Marketwired) -- 01/08/14 -- PNI Sensor (PNI), a leader in magnetic sensing and sensor fusion technologies, today announced that Electronic Products Magazine has selected SENtral™, its ultra-low power motion co-processor, for a prestigious 2013 Product of the Year Award.

SENtral solves a critical problem for mobile-device designers who want all the benefits of gyroscopes, accelerometers and magnetic sensors -- without draining valuable host CPU power that is needed for other functions. This is especially true for the new "always-on" requirements of motion sensors in smartphones, tablets, wearables and other consumer electronics.

"The SENtral sensor fusion co-processor from PNI Sensor presents a highly effective way to pull in data from complex motion sensor systems with gyroscope, accelerometer, and magnetometer sensors that are often found in mobile and wearable devices. The device offloads complex sensor algorithm processing from a main CPU and takes only a few hundred microamps while doing so," said Jim Harrison, technical editor, Electronic Products Magazine. "SENtral can handle the job of managing and 'fusing' data from these multiple sensors with a nine-axis sensor fusion algorithm, further unburdening the CPU. Plus, it's only 1.6 x 1.6 x 0.5 mm, and it works over -40 degrees to +85 degrees C. What's not to like about this chip?"

M&M Modules for SENtral
Earlier this week, PNI Sensor announced the industry's first Motion & Measurement (M&M) modules for SENtral, an integrated platform that makes accurate motion and heading readily available to a wide range of system designers. For more information, see press release, "PNI Sensor Advances Motion Processing at 2014 CES" (January 6, 2014).

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...

As enterprises work to take advantage of Big Data technologies, they frequently become distracted by product-level decisions. In most new Big Data builds this approach is completely counter-productive: it presupposes tools that may not be a fit for development teams, forces IT to take on the burden of evaluating and maintaining unfamiliar technology, and represents a major up-front expense. In his session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Andrew Warfield, CTO and Co-Founder of Coho Data, will dis...

When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it’s important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. “Fly two mistakes high” is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee...
