3D magnetic sensor from Infineon

Infineon will have engineering samples of a 3D magnetic sensor in July. Called TLV493D-A1B6 performs magnetic field detection in x, y, and z direction allowing the sensor to measure 3D linear and rotation movements. The digital I²C interface enables bidirectional communication between sensor and microcontroller.The sensor is for consumer and industrial applications that require 3D measurements or angular me ...

3D Printed Microcontroller Dice Roller

This is a just-for-fun project I did in the Digilent MakerSpace. Usually whenever I play board games I use a dice-rolling smartphone app since dice are so easy to lose. I thought I would try making my own hardware version though. It turned out really well and was a lot of fun. In this Instructable I will go over how I designed the circuitry, wrote the code for the microcontroller, made the housing, and put ...

3D TouchPad from Microchip

Microchip Technology have announced a computer peripheral 6” touchpad which it claims is the first able to resolve 2D multi-touch and free-space 3D gestures. To detect gestures up to a distance of 70 mm from the pad surface Microchip have used their MGC3130 single-chip gesture recognition and motion tracking controller released in 2012. It works on the principle of electrical near-field sensing. The 2D touc ...
