Mouser and MEMSIC sign global distribution agreement

Mouser and MEMSIC sign global distribution agreement: Following the signing of a global distribution agreement, Mouser Electronics will distribute MEMSIC’s micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS) sensors to customers around the world.

MEMSIC supplies MEMS sensors for the consumer electronics, communications, automotive, medical and industrial sensing sectors. The MEMSIC product line enables mobility and the Internet of Things (IoT) by combining all the essential elements, says the manufacturer, including solutions for drones, mobile, wearable, industrial, medical and smart parking applications. MEMSIC’s product line available from Mouser Electronics features a variety of sensor products, including magnetic and e-compass products, accelerometers, six-degree-of-freedom (DoF) and nine-DOF inertial measurement units (IMUs) together with orientation sensors, and gas flow modules.

Highlights of the portfolio now available from Mouser, include the MEMSIC MMC5883MA Anisotropic Magneto Resistive (AMR)-based, three-axis, magnetic sensor. MEMSIC says it provides the industry’s highest accuracy, lowest noise, and lowest power consumption. The MMC5883MA sensor provides 16-bit operation over a wide (±8.0-Gauss) operating range, and features linearity of ± 0.2 per cent full scale range (FSR), hysteresis of 0.2 per cent FSR, and repeatability of 0.2 per cent FSR on each of its three axes. It exhibits low current consumption of only 20-microA at a data rate of seven sample/s and extremely low noise level of only 0.4-mGauss total RMS noise. The small, industry-standard, LGA package enables the sensor to address the ever-increasing demands of industrial and drone applications, says MEMSIC.

Another flagship product is the low-cost MXC6255XC/U DTOS accelerometer range, comprising two-axis motion and orientation sensors, based on MEMSICs proven MEMS thermal technology. The DTOS accelerometers allow designers to integrate key user interfaces, such as programmable “shake to change” menu navigation, TV/music channel selection, and vertical/horizontal picture orientation. The devices can also provide basic game play control, fall-over detection in irons and other appliances, and other applications in mobile devices, toys, and consumer electronics.

There is also the MFC2000, bi-directional, digital MEMS gas flow sensors, which are more durable and provide high levels of measurement repeatability when compared to existing diaphragm or turbine-based gas flow meters, claims MEMSIC. The silicon-based devices offer great power consumption characteristics, such as sleep-mode currents as low as 1.0-microA and typical operating currents of 3.0-mA. Other benefits include low 2.7 to 5.5V supply operation, wide dynamic range with three per cent or better accuracy, and the ability to provide the necessary performance over a 100:1 flow range. The architecture of the mass flow sensor modules is customisable for different flow rates and form factors optimised to an application’s requirements. The gas flow sensors reduce the need for specialised machines in care centres, and enable gas flow-related medical equipment to be economically introduced into the home medical market.
