Sensor Platforms declared that its FreeMotion library of software algorithms and middleware, besides supporting all sensors used in smartphones and tablets, can now support all major mobile microprocessors.
32-bit embedded processors such as Atmel’s AVR, ARM’s Cortex-M, and Freescale’s ColdFire families used as sensor hubs; and 64-bit application processors including Qualcomm’s Snapdragon, Intel’s Atom, nVidia’s Tegra, and TI’s OMAP processors deployed in smartphones and tablets are the microprocessors supported by the FreeMotion Library.
Using the same code base, the Library can be adopted as a firmware embedded in a sensor hub or as a software module running on an application processor. This unified code base simplifies verification and support operations for OEMs.
This unique hardware architecture and processor instruction set complements the potential of Sensor Platforms to adapt with any barometer, accelerometer, gyroscope, and magnetometer.
The FreeMotion Library supports the entire suite of processors and sensors and enables app innovators and mobile device designers to enhance sourcing independence, maintain sensor calibration, and optimize power consumption. In addition, it improves product performance and minimizes platform fragmentation.
FreeMotion Library features proprietary algorithms that extends battery life; ensures premium sensor fusion across the complete suite of alternative sensors and existing microprocessors. Its robust architecture ensures ongoing cross-calibration, reliable sampling, and magnetic anomaly mitigation to provide better and reliable sensor information that will greatly benefit application developers and end users
