Traditional multi-button-based remote controls can be difficult to use for browsing and selecting content on a Smart TV. Additionally, touch pads and keyboards can be expensive, difficult and inconvenient to use.
Our world’s first integrated 6-axis MotionTracking™ device, is designed for low power, low cost, and high performance requirements of Smart TVs, set top boxes and remote control applications. The 6-axis device incorporates InvenSense’s MotionFusion™ and run-time calibration firmware enabling manufacturers to eliminate the costly and complex system level integration of discrete devices calibration procedures in remote controls.
The single chip 6-axis motion sensor combines an accelerometer and gyroscope into a very small 4x4x0.9 mm QFN package, with an onboard Digital Motion Processor™ (DMP) that handles MotionFusion™ and ongoing run-time calibration. By offloading sensor fusion and run-time calibration to the DMP, remote control manufacturers can design-in less expensive microcontrollers, while also extending remote control battery life as less sensor data is transmitted for external processing on the TV. Additionally, as calibration and sensor fusion are performed on our 6-axis MotionTracking™ device based remote controls, TVs will no longer need to spend valuable CPU bandwidth and associated power consumption processing the motion sensor data for use by software applications.
