MEMS Sensor Brings 2,000-inch Screen to Mobile Phone
Usuda Research Institute & Systems Corp developed a module that enables mobile phone users to watch a 2,000-inch screen with their handsets.
The module was realized by a MEMS motion sensor and the company's proprietary software technology. It is intended exclusively for the "T-01A," one of the latest handsets released by NTT DoCoMo Inc.
The newly-developed module is based on the "intelligence sensor," which Usuda Research Institute & Systems developed for mobile phones. Equipped with MEMS acceleration and angular velocity sensors, it can detect movement.
As an interface to a mobile phone, MicroUSB, which is incorporated in the T-01A, is used. The memory capacity required by the module was reduced to 170 Kbytes so that the software can be run on Windows Mobile 6.1, the T-01A's operating system. The processing speed of the handset's microprocessor is 1GHz.
The module can be controlled by the T-01A's touch panel. Also, it has a function to show images shot by the built-in camera in real time.
