CDI Blog For Engineers Introduces the Latest TDK InvenSense Break Out Board NW-MOT-ICM42605 Introduces the Latest TDK InvenSense Break Out Board
NW-MOT-ICM42605 for the Next Generation of Motion Sensors
the ICM-42605 introduces their latest TDK InvenSense break out board, NW-MOT-ICM42605, for the next generation of motion sensors, the ICM-42605. The ICM-42605 is a 6-axis MotionTracking device that combines a 3-axis gyroscope, and a 3-axis accelerometer in a small 2.5x3x0.91 mm (14-pin LGA) package. It also features a 2K-byte FIFO that can lower the traffic on the serial bus interface and reduce power consumption by allowing the system processor to burst read sensor data and then go into a low-power mode.
ICM-42605 includes the following motion features, also known as APEX (Advanced Pedometer and Event Detection – neXt gen)
  • Pedometer: Tracks step count, also issues step detect interrupt.
  • Tilt Detection: Issues an interrupt when the tilt angle exceeds 35° for more than a programmable time.
  • Raise to Wake/Sleep: Gesture detection for wake and sleep events. Interrupt is issued when either of these two events are detected.
  • Tap Detection: Issues an interrupt when a tap is detected, along with the tap count.
  • Wake on Motion: Detects motion when accelerometer data exceeds a programmable threshold.
  • Significant Motion Detection: Detects significant motion if wake on motion events are detected during a programmable time window.
The host interface can be configured to support I3C slave, I2C slave, or SPI slave modes. The I3C interface supports speeds up to 12.5MHz (data rates up to 12.5Mbps in SDR mode, 25Mbps in DDR mode), the I2C interface supports speeds up to 1 MHz, and the SPI interface supports speeds up to 24 MHz.

The NW-MOT-ICM42605 provides an easy to use, low-cost, very small breakout board for the ICM-42605. All pins are mapped to standard 2.54mm/0.1” headers. This allows for use in a standard bread board or to be ‘wired’ into an application. The header-header spacing is 7.62mm (300mil).
