The SM130 houses a 16-bit three-axis gyroscope and a 12-bit three-axis accelerometer, sounds good but what does it cost and what are the drift numbers? This might be a nice robotic upgrade for an IMU if the cost and features are better than the current offerings. With some of the cheaper MEMs they have a lot of drift/noise and this limits their usefulness, still they are used due to low cost and some tricks to "re-calibrate" on the fly. Looking forward to hearing more of the details.
Replay available now: A handful of emerging network technologies are competing to be the preferred wide-area connection for the Internet of Things. All claim lower costs and power use than cellular but none have wide deployment yet. Listen in as proponents of leading contenders make their case to be the metro or national IoT network of the future. Rick Merritt, EE Times Silicon Valley Bureau Chief, moderators this discussion.
