ICM-20948: The World’s Lowest Power
9-Axis MEMS MotionTracking Device
 
About the ICM-20948

Component Distributors Inc. (CDI) is proud to introduce the new TDK InvenSense
ICM-20948, the World’s Lowest Power 9-Axis MEMS MotionTracking Device. These parts are now available and in stock at CDI and are the preferred 9-Axis parts for new designs.

The ICM-20948 supports an auxiliary I²C interface to external sensors, on-chip 16-bit ADCs, programmable digital filters, an embedded temperature sensor, and programmable interrupts. The device features an operating voltage range down to 1.71V. Communication ports include I²C and high speed SPI at 7 MHz.

 
About the ICM-20948 Evaluation Board
In addition, the 9-Axis evaluation board EV_ICM-20948 is now available for initial testing of the ICM-20948 sensor. Unlike other InvenSense motion sensors, these devices do not use the standard EV_INV-ARM. Instead to test this devices capability, two new boards will be required, the BRD_CARRIER and the STM32F411RE Nucleo (ARM Cortex M4 core) as well as the eMD 20X48 User Guide.
 
About the eMD 20X48 User Guide
The eMD 20X48 User Guide contains an example project for the ICM-20948 (and the ICM-20648) using an STM ARM Cortex M4 core. The eMD is designed as a solution which can be easily ported to most MCUs. However, the eMD 20X48 kit includes a complete 9-Axis solution with sensor fusion, calibration, and common gesture detection all running on the DMP. The eMD 20X48 User Guide contains an example project built on top of a bare metal ST Discovery evaluation board with an ARM M4.
 
About the BRD_CARRIER-Plus
Don’t have the STM32F411RE Nucleo (ARM Cortex M4 core) for testing? For a limited time now, Component Distributors will offer the BRD_CARRIER-Plus. The BRD_CARRIER-Plus is the part number for the BRD_CARRIER and the STM32F411RE for only $27.50 while supplies last.
