The Sensor Fusion Platform (SFP) is small form factor integrated module containing a EM7180 SENtral Sensor Fusion Coprocessor, BMX055 9-degree-of-freedom (9-DOF) system in a package (3-axis gyroscope/accelerometer/ magnetometer) and a ST24256 32KB EEPROM containing the module firmware.
The SENtral Sensor Fusion Coprocessor fully controls and processes data from BMX055 9-DOF sensor. The primary data output from SFP are quaternions, which uniquely define device orientation, or Euler angles (heading, pitch, and roll). The quaternions easily can be also converted to the rotation vector, and the rotation matrix. Raw or calibrated sensor data are also provided to external Host which can control individual sensor rates and power states of the platform. External Host CPU can communicate with the SFP over high-speed I2C bus and obtain both fusion result and raw sensor data.
EM Microelectronic provides the EM7180DVK development tool to evaluate and prototype Motion Sensor Fusion applications based on the EM7180SFP Sensor Fusion Platform module.
