iNEMO Design Contest to Promote Innovative Sensing Applications

STMicroelectronics recently introduced the 2012 iNEMO Design Contest. The final-year engineering students from the National University of Singapore and the Nanyang Technological University (NTU) will take part in this contest that includes developing novel applications utilizing ST's award-winning2 iNEMO smart multi-sensor technology.

iNEMO of ST is an exceptional evaluation and development tool providing 10 degrees of freedom. It uses a mix of 3-axis angular rate, 3-axis linear acceleration, and 3-axis motion sensing via a magnetic field, along with barometric/altitude readings, leveraged by an STM32 32-bit microcontroller. As a rapidly developing component of semiconductor industry, MEMS sensing technology has become prevalent in smartphones, cars, gaming devices and other IT products. Packed within a single platform, this versatile system encompasses wireless connectivity, multiple sensors with processing potentials, sensor-fusion and application software. It is ideal for use in portable navigation devices, gaming, human machine interface, patient monitoring, and robotics.

The iNEMO Design Contest will be conducted alongside the final-year project of participating students. ST will provide iNEMO boards, software drivers, documentation, and technical support, in addition to granting 3rd-party costs for the projects. During May 2013, the student projects will be presented to the contest for review and finalization. Based on creativity, functionality, implementation, practicality, presentation and final demonstration, the iNEMO Design Contest will honor the winning team with SGD10,000.

ST reported the shipment of 2B MEMS sensors in February 2012. It is an all-inclusive MEMS supplier providing gyroscopes, micro-machined accelerometers, digital compasses, iNEMO inertial modules and microphones, and pressure sensors.
