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).

Just over a week ago I received a long and loud sustained applause for a presentation I delivered at this year’s Cloud Expo in Santa Clara. I was extremely pleased with the turnout and had some very good conversations with many of the attendees. Over the next few days I had many more meaningful conversations and was not only happy with the results but also learned a few new things. Here is everything I learned in those three days distilled into three short points.
