MEMS accelerometers handle an increasing number of functions that users are coming to expect from their mobile devices, such as automatically switching from landscape to portait orientation. Look for every mobile phone to use an accelerometer within three years. R.C.J.
The user experience for mobile devices will soon get richer according to Freescale Semiconductor Inc., which announced its new generation of three-axis micro-electro-mechanical system (MEMS) accelerometers Monday (Feb. 15) at the Mobile World Congress. Freescale (Austin, Texas) claims the devices set a record for low-power consumption and provide smarter built-in gesture recognition algorithms.
