Nanotechnology shrinks motion sensors for consumer market

Abstract:
STMicroelectronics is developed a nanotechnology-based three-axis linear accelerometer which it is aiming at miniaturised motion-sensing designs in the consumer and industrial markets.

Measuring 3x3x0.9mm, the motion sensors are suitable for low-g applications in the consumer and industrial markets, including motion user interfaces in mobile and gaming devices, free-fall detection for hard-disk data protection, and vibration monitoring and compensation in white-goods appliances.
