World’s First Tri-Core 6-Axis MotionTracking Solution with Integrated Sensor-Hub Framework Software
First in the FireFly platform of products, the single-chip ICM-30630 is the world’s first tri-core 6-axis motion tracking solution with integrated sensor-hub framework software. It combines industry leading gyroscope and accelerometer sensors with tri-core processors (an ARM Cortex-M0 CPU, a DMP3 and a DMP4 Digital Motion Processor™) in a small 3x3x1mm LGA package.
The ICM-30630 serves as a sensor hub that supports the collection and processing of data from internal and external sensors. The multi-cores are designed to offload processing from the Application Processor, thereby saving system power and improving performance.
The ARM Cortex-M0 CPU provides a low-power programmable platform for software development. The DMP3 offloads Android L processing from the CPU, and provides ready-to-use physical and virtual Android sensors. The DMP4 is optimized for fixed point processing and FFT generation, complimenting the CPU by offloading math intensive operations.
The integrated InvenSense Sensor Framework provides an open and powerful platform for creating cutting-edge ‘AlwaysOn’ applications for mobile platforms. Developers can use built-in framework components to rapidly develop and launch new features. The command protocol is designed for seamless porting to new systems, allowing software reuse and therefore maximizing returns on software investment.
