1. SpacePoint Scout module

 

The all-in-one SpacePoint Scout module allows controllers to deliver the pinpoint accuracy vital for realistic motion tracking. Ideal for development of video game controllers, TV and set-top box controllers, virtual reality, and limb and body tracking.

 

SpacePoint SCOUT is roughly 65% larger than a US 1¢ piece.

The SpacePoint Scout is the first development module to bring top-caliber 9-axis motion tracking technology together in one integrated module – sensors, sensor fusion algorithms, and an I2C interface – and ready for quick implementation. The SpacePoint Scout motion-tracking module is ideal for the development of video game controllers, TV and set-top box controllers, virtual reality and limb and body tracking. 

The
Scout includes a 3-axis accelerometer, a 3-axis gyroscope; and PNI's 3-axis geomagnetic sensor that facilitates a constant, repeatable, absolute orientation reference. These nine data points are then fused incorporating a proprietary algorithm using a high-state Kalman filter.

The
Scout is designed for use in highly dynamic conditions, such as high-speed gaming and remote controls where accuracy is demanded. Applications include robotic maneuvering, limb and body tracking, virtual reality—essentially any application that requires stable and repeatable tracking of physical movement.

 The SpacePoint Scout delivers reliability in the real world. More accurate and reliable than standard 6-axis IMU systems, the self-calibrating Scout delivers unbeatably accurate results that stay accurate throughout use in real-world conditions. Self-calibrating, the Scout constantly corrects for gyro drift, magnetic anomalies and other real world interference.*

3. PNI CommBoard

  

PNI CommBoard

The CommBoard is a communication interface designed to connect the MicroMag and V2Xe modules to a host system that uses a standard serial interface, such as a PC. It is typically used as a prototyping and evaluation tool for PNI’s line of compass and magnetometer modules. The PNI CommBoard is also used for production when the host system requires a higher level serial protocol to interface to the PNI sensor modules. The first version of the PNI CommBoard features a user selectable RS-232 or RS-485 interface to the host system. The CommBoard developer kit comes with software for the PC that has a graphical user interface (GUI) to control every aspect of the CommBoard and any PNI module that is attached to it. In the future, different interfaces may be made available as customer needs are identified. Please contact PNI for support with your custom interface high-volume opportunity  

The CommBoard is a printed circuit assembly (PCA) that acts as an easy-to-use interface between a PC and certain PNI products. The CommBoard is a UART to SPI or I2C bridge which receives UART commands from the user‟s computer via a virtual communication port running over a USB line. The applicable PNI products and their interface types are listed below.

  • RM3100 Evaluation Board
  • I2C or SPI RM3000-f Evaluation Board SPI
  • V2Xe
  • SPI SpacePoint Scout I2C or UART
