Introduces ICP-101xx Barometric / Altimeter Modules

 

TDK InvenSense has released the ICP-101xx pressure sensor family, based on MEMS capacitive technology which provides ultra-low noise at the lowest power, enabling industry leading relative accuracy, sensor throughput, and temperature stability.

The first product is the ICP-10100 device. This pressure sensor can measure pressure differences with an accuracy of ±1 Pa, an accuracy enabling altitude measurement differentials as small as 8.5 cm, less than the height of a single stair step. This family also, consuming only 1.3 µA @1 Hz, available in a small footprint 2 mm x 2 mm x 0.72 mm, waterproof to 1.5m depth, and comes in a 10-pin LGA package.

The ICP-101xx is ideal for applications such as:

  • Altitude Control of Drones and Flying Toys
  • Mobile Phones
  • Virtual Reality and Gaming Equipment
  • Indoor/Outdoor Navigation (dead-reckoning, floor/elevator/step detection)
  • Vertical velocity monitoring
  • Leisure, Sports, and Fitness Activity Identification
  • Weather Forecasting
Part Numbers Available Are:

If you are unfamiliar with Barometric/ Altimeter modules, the best starting point is the TDK InvenSense Development Kit, DK-10100. The platform is designed around Microchip G55 MCU can be used by developers for rapid evaluation and development of ICP-10100 based solutions. The DK-10100 includes an on-board Embedded Debugger so external tools are not required to program or debug the G55 MCU. The development kit comes with necessary software including InvenSense MotionLink, a GUI based development tool and embedded Motion Driver for ICP-10100.
