Microchip Technology Inc. announces the SSC7102—a low-power, flexible and turnkey sensor hub that makes implementing sensor fusion easy and provides a large selection of supported sensors. This solution was created in direct partnership with multiple industry-leading sensor manufacturers and sensor-fusion specialists, enabling faster time to market without the need for sensor-fusion expertise. The unit consumes ~4 mA while running complex sensor-fusion algorithms, resulting in longer battery life for Windows 8.1 tablets, laptops, ultrabooks and smart phones. The sensors can now be added to virtually anything, due to their small cost and size. As sensors continue to surround us, system requirements are moving from simple monitoring to providing complex information about our environment and activities.
