Development Kit for IAM-20680HT Automotive Grade Motion Sensor

DK-20680HT is a comprehensive development platform for IAM-20680HT, a MEMS 6-axis automotive grade inertial motion sensor qualified according to AEC-Q100 reliability matrix. It is equipped with an on-board IAM-20680HT sensor.

Part of the SmartAutomotive platform, the DK-20680HT is designed around Atmel’s SAMG55 Cortex-M4 MCU, and can be used by developers for rapid evaluation and development of TDK InvenSense non-safety Automotive MEMS based solutions. The DK SmartMotion kit includes an on-board Embedded Debugger, so external tools aren’t required to program or debug the SAMG55 MCU

The development kit comes with evaluation software including MotionLink, a GUI based development tool and embedded motion drivers for IAM-20680HT.

MotionLink is a GUI based development tool included with the platform. It can be used to capture and visualize the sensor data from the on-board IAM motion sensor.

SmartAutomotive™ Development Kit for IAM-20680HT Automotive Sensor


Dead Reckoning


In-Vehicle Infotainment

High performance 6-axis IMUs enhance positioning systems when GPS/GNSS signal is not available or reliable. Gyroscope and accelerometer outputs are fused to determine vehicle position even in multi-level parking or tunnels.

The accelerometer enables crash detection which can trigger emergency calls, and the gyroscope allows for vehicle positioning and driving style analysis.

6-axis IMU sensors enable advanced features and deliver a superior user navigation experience.
