Besides smartphones and tablets, HD MEMS microphones are also being adopted by automobile makers — to improve voice command accuracy — and by hearing aid vendors, notably the ReSound LiNX, which uses two HD MEMS microphones to cancel ambient noise, improve sound clarity and to enable them to double as music headphones using Bluetooth connectivity with the iPhone.

The market research firm predicts in its recently released Motion Sensors Report that revenue will grow 37% this year. That’s a paltry figure when compared to the unprecedented 417% increase in 2012 and the strong 94% increase in 2013. However, the market has reached a substantial size. Global revenue for combo sensors in consumer and mobile applications is expected to rise from $443.0 million in 2013 to $608.2 million this year.

And the robust growth is expected to continue, with sales reaching $1.03 billion in sales by 2017. That’s a compound annual growth rate of 23%.

Combo sensors, which deliver an accelerometer, gyroscope, magnetometer, and pressure sensor in a MEMS package, are a must-have for smartphone makers. Marwan Boustany, senior analyst for MEMS and sensors at IHS, said in the release that six-axes inertial measurement units (IMUs) accounted for 79% of combo sensor revenue last year. These devices bring together a three-axis accelerometer and a three-axis gyroscope. Six-axis compass IMUs, which combine a magnetometer or electronic compass with an accelerometer, were the second-largest category last year and generated $85 million in sales.

Smartphones and tablets represented 95% of the market for combo sensors and will continue to take up the lion’s share of sales for the foreseeable future, IHS said. Six-axis IMUs have largely taken the place of discrete gyroscopes in devices like smartphones and tablets for several OEMs. Samsung was the largest combo sensor consumer last year. By 2017, these applications will still represent four out of five combo sensor sales.

The next biggest opportunity for combo sensors is in wearable electronics. Six-axis IMUs are already found in smart watches such as Samsung’s Galaxy Gear. Nine-axis IMUs have also made inroads, most prominently in Google Glass. Gaming is another frontier for MEMS sensors as they are integrated into consoles and handheld devices.

Chris Burns wanted a project to sit on his desk and be a conversation starter. He had an interesting idea centered on using a business card holder to display his project.

Out of this concept, the LEDC was born. It is a tiny LED Matrix clock chock full of features.

For many of us, there is a certain wonderful feeling that bubbles to the surface when we think of arcades. The many hours spent huddled around a game, pouring our hard-earned quarters into the machine. The shouts of frustration as your friends can’t beat your high score. The ridiculously sore fingers from mashing those buttons for far too long. Unfortunately, recapturing even a bit of that fun is difficult.

Steve Smith managed to come up with a great way to recapture a bit of his arcade fun. He decided to put an arcade cabinet on his desk. This itty-bitty arcade machine you see is fully functional and loaded with games. Housed inside the tiny cabinet is a Raspberry Pi loaded with Mame, an emulator for a game system.

This specific version of Mame is called PiMame and can emulate several different video gaming systems. You can find more information on PiMame here, if you want to run it on your Raspberry Pi.


Toshiba Corp of Japan and SanDisk Corp of the United States have separately filed civil lawsuits against South Korea’s SK Hynix Inc, reports Reuters.
