STMicroelectronics has confirmed the validation of its LSM6DSL 6-axis inertial sensor and the LPS22HB pressure sensor for Alibaba IoT’s ecosystem, which enables users to create complete IoT (Internet-of-Things) nodes and gateway solutions with a better time to market.
Launched last year, AliOS Things is a light-weight embedded operating system for the Internet of Things, developed by Alibaba. The company recently announced the release of AliOS Things v1.2, which includes a sensor-based component called uData.
The STMicroelectronics sensors that have passed the AliOS validation have been integrated into uData and both the companies are cooperating on the development of IoT systems that foresees to improve end-user experiences.
In addition to the news, Collins Wu, Marketing Director, Analog and MEMS Group, Greater China & South Asia, STMicroelectronics, said, “The validation by Alibaba of ST’s LSM6DSL and LPS22HB sensors is an important achievement. Creating and connecting nodes quickly and securely is facilitated by the holistic platform of AliOS, which cuts time to market for users and allows them to create IoT systems in China quickly for applications in smartphones, smartwatches, smart locks, smart parking and beyond. On top of this, Alibaba is collaborating closely with ST to integrate more products in the platform, offering compelling IoT solutions for customers.”
The LSM6DSL by STMicroelectronics is a system-in-package featuring a 3D digital accelerometer and a 3D digital gyroscope that operates at 0.65 mA in high-performance mode and enables always-on low-power features for an optimal motion experience for the consumer while the LPS22HB is an ultra-compact piezo-resistive absolute pressure sensor that functions as a digital output barometer. Dust-free and water-resistant by design, the sensor enables high accuracy and low-power operation.
Further adding to the feature, the LSM6DSL has the high robustness to mechanical shock makes which makes it the preferred choice of system designers for the creation and manufacturing of reliable products. It supports main OS requirements, offering real, virtual and batch sensors with 4Kbyte for dynamic data batching.
The LPS22HB is available in a full-mold package with silicon cap and six 20µm holes guaranteeing sensor moisture resistance, relative accuracy of pressure measurement 0.1 mbar, and very low power consumption (e.g. 12µA in Low-Noise mode).
