Introduction
Learn how to use the latest Freescale Xtrinsic MEMs sensors with the new low cost sensor development kit from element14.
Sensors are at the root of any system looking for context awareness, advanced UI control, safety, and many closed loop monitoring applications.  Unlocking the capability of a sensor starts with understanding the full potential of the sensing technology and its potential with sensor fusion.
Join Freescale's Michelle Kelsey, who will introduce you to a new world of sensing possibilities, detailing Freescale’s next-generation Xtrinsic Sensor products, their differentiated specs, their power saving features, and how that translates directly to your optimal design from the internet of things to industrial, consumer, and everywhere in between.
Vandana Lokeshwar will discuss element14’s low-cost evaluation kit (XTRINSIC-SENSORS-EVKXTRINSIC-SENSORS-EVK) using Freescale’s Freedom platform (FRDM-KL25ZFRDM-KL25Z). You will learn how to use this platform to evaluate sensors quickly and with ease for collecting data. Measure pressure, altitude, temperature, magnetic fields, location and motion on a single board using the latest sensing technologies from Freescale.
