Bosch Sensortec has announced the BMA530 and BMA580, the world’s smallest MEMS accelerometers. Both devices include built-in features making them easy to design with. BMA530 tracks activities with its step counter and is especially suitable for wearables, and BMA580 targets hearables with voice activity detection.
RealWear starts shipping intrinsically safe smart glasses, readying industrial customers for an AI revolution
RealWear has received its official ATEX / IECEx Intrinsically Safe (IS) certification for RealWear Navigator Z1 (“Navigator Z1”), with consultation with i.safe MOBILE, a technology expert in IS product development. IS certification is granted after passing a plethora of tests (i.e. thermal, electrical integrity, mechanical durability, safety compliance, and explosion-proof testing), validating that the device, whose purpose is to boost productivity and enhance safety for frontline workers, will not cause an explosion where flammable particulates are present in the atmosphere. All consumer electronics that are typically deployed for worker productivity in a standard office environment–including iPhones, tablets, and immersive AR/VR headsets are strictly prohibited in these zones.
Omnivision announces single chip LCOS panel for next-generation smart AR/XR/MR glasses
Omnivision has announced the new OP03050, a low-power, small form factor liquid crystal on silicon (LCOS) panel that integrates the LCOS array, driving circuit, framebuffer and interface in a single chip. The OP03050 provides a high-resolution, immersive experience for real-time video conferencing and streaming when used in augmented reality (AR), extended reality (XR) and mixed reality (MR) glasses and head-mounted displays.
