Mouser adds InvenSense’s time-of-flight sensors
For a range of IoT devices, augmented reality (AR), drones and mobile devices, the MOD_CH101 ultrasonic time-of-flight (ToF) sensor module and the DK-CH101 SmartSonic, both from Invense, are now available from Mouser Electronics.
They offer fast and accurate range measurement with low power consumption, reports Mouser, and are capable of detecting objects of any size, colour, and transparency.
The InvenSense MOD_CH101 ultrasonic ToF sensor module enables rapid integration of the Chirp CH-101 sensor. The CH-101 is an integrated system-in-package (SiP) with a low power system-on-chip (SoC) and a piezoelectric micro-machined ultrasonic transducer. The CH-101 sensor is built using patented MEMS technology from Chirp. It operates advanced ultrasonic DSP algorithms and provides accurate range measurements to targets at distances up to 1.2m, says Mouser. The MOD_CH101 module includes an acoustic housing that allows engineers to customise the sensor’s field of view (FoV) up to 180 degrees and allows for simultaneous range measurements to multiple objects within the FoV. The device is also immune to ambient noise.
The InvenSense DK-CH101 SmartSonic platform, now available to order from Mouser Electronics, includes an on-board CH-101 sensor and a Microchip SAM G55 microcontroller with an Arm Cortex-M4 core. The robust development board is capable of connecting up to four external MOD-CH101 sensor modules via flat-flex cables. There is also an onboard embedded debugger. The set of software tools available includes embedded drivers, a GUI-based development tool and SonicLink (available for download to registered developers).
Mouser Electronics says it strives to empower innovation among design engineers and buyers by delivering advanced technologies and claims to stock the world’s widest selection of the latest semiconductors and electronic components for the newest design projects.
