Inertial, pedestrian navigation IC complements GPS January 15, 2016Inertial, pedestrian navigation IC complements GPS PNI Sensor has announced SENtrace, the first coprocessor for wearables providing accurate and ultra-low power pedestrian tracking indoors, as well as in urban canyons - this is good news especially near tall buildings and especially in large cities like NY city where I have much personal experience with this phenomenon; so, anywhere that the global positioning systems (GPS) signal goes missing or is inadequate. Read more GoerTek and Intel invest in force-sensor startup December 22, 2015GoerTek and Intel invest in force-sensor startup NextInput Inc. (San Jose, CA) has completed an $8.0 million Series A funding round led by Sierra Ventures and corporate strategic investors Intel and GoerTek. Read more Printing MEMS devices at 100x less cost December 22, 2015Printing MEMS devices at 100x less cost Manufacturing MEMS has traditionally required sophisticated semiconductor fabrication facilities, which cost tens of millions of dollars to build. Potentially useful MEMS have languished in development because they don't have markets large enough to justify the initial capital investment in production. Read more Lattice platform target wearable device development December 2, 2015Lattice platform target wearable device development Lattice Semiconductor Corporation has announced a development platform for use in designing low-power wearable devices for consumers. Based on the iCE40 Ultra™ FPGA, the platform features a large number of sensors and peripherals, making it a compelling platform for the design of a wide array of wearable devices. Read more Roadmap outline set for debut at TSensors Summit November 27, 2015Roadmap outline set for debut at TSensors Summit The MEMS and Sensors Industry Group has announced that it will release the outline of the TSensors (Trillion Sensors) Roadmap on December 9 at the 2015 TSensors Summit, being held in Celebration, Florida.
