Chirp SmartSonic™ Platform Family

TDK InvenSense's Chirp SmartSonic platform family is ideal for applications such as mobile and wearable devices

Image of TDK InvenSense's Chirp SmartSonic™ Platform FamilyTDK InvenSense's Chirp SmartSonic platform family of ultrasonic sensor time-of-flight (ToF) solutions includes the SmartSonic platform with the award-winning Chirp CH-101 ultra-low-power ultrasonic ToF range sensor. The Chirp CH-101 provides millimeter-accurate range measurements up to 1.2 m, independent of the target color and transparency. The Chirp SmartSonic ultrasonic ToF sensing platform is intended for consumer electronics, AR/VR, robotics/drones, smarthomes/IoT, mobile/wearable devices, and industrial market segments.

The CH-101 ultrasonic ToF sensor module (MOD-CH101) contains a CH-101 sensor on a small PCB with a flat flexible connector (FFC) and acoustic housing on top that enables an omnidirectional beam pattern of the output. The sensor is designed to allow for rapid integration into customer product enclosures, prototyping, and small-scale production for a wide range of applications such as AR/VR, smart home technology, drones and robotics, connected IoT devices, mobile and wearable technology, and automotive. The CH-101 sensor module connects directly into the SmartSonic developer evaluation kit (DK-CH101) for initial product evaluation using the SonicLink™ software, which can be used by customers to develop embedded algorithms for specific applications. TDK MEMS-based ultrasonic sensing technology offers lower power consumption by several orders of magnitude, range measurement accuracy that is not affected by ambient light conditions such as direct sunlight, the ability to sense any color object as well as windows and glass doors, a wide and customizable field of view (FoV), and 100 times lower range noise. The SmartSonic ultrasonic sensing platform is easy to use, enables fast prototyping, and offers flexible customer design options for a broad range of use-case scenarios such as range-finding, presence/proximity sensing, obstacle detection/avoidance, and object position tracking.
