Samtec Introduces nMode Wireless Sensor Module for IoT Applications

Samtec recently introduced the first nMode™ Wireless Sensor Module. The production-ready solution allows engineers to remotely sense and measure inertial, environmental and acoustical parameters. The 13.5 mm x 13.5 mm nMode™ Wireless Sensor Module contains a MEMS accelerometer, gyroscope, magnetometer, pressure sensor, and a MEMS microphone - all from STMicroelectronics. The small size and powerful design makes this Module a standalone node for products such as wearables, gaming accessories, and smart-home or Internet-of-Things (IoT) devices.

Samtec has collaborated with ST to position the module as an FCC-certified production version of ST’s SensorTile development kit. The solution leverages standard ICs and, like ST’s SensorTile, it’s compatible with the STM32 ecosystem through STM32Cube support.

Main features of nMode™ Wireless Sensor Module core system:

  • STM32L476 Ultra-low-power with FPU ARM Cortex-M4 MCU with Floating Point Unit
  • BlueNRG-MS Bluetooth® low energy network processor
  • BALF-NRG-01D3 Integrated Balun Filter
  • LSM6DSM 3D Accelerometer + 3D Gyroscope
  • LSM303AGR 3D Magnetometer + 3D Accelerometer
  • LPS22HB Water and dust-resistant pressure sensor/barometer
  • MP34DT04 Digital MEMS microphone
  • LD39115J18R Low quiescent, current low noise LDO

Applications:

  • Wearables
  • Gaming Accessories
  • Smart Homes
  • Smart Agriculture
  • Smart Industry
  • Environmental Sensing
  • Free-fall Detection
  • Internet of Things
  • Security / Proximity Detection

The nMode™ Wireless Sensor Module (P/N OSM-1-1313) will be available in Spring 2017. The Samtec nMode™ Wireless Sensor Module was displayed at the private ST suite at CES 2017 in Las Vegas, NV January 5 to 8, 2017.

Leveraging its patented Glass Core Technology, Samtec plans to release even smaller versions of the nMode™ Wireless Sensor Module and a growing portfolio of standard nMode™ modules throughout 2017. Click here for more information.
