Working Group for Standard for Sensor Performance Parameter Definitions

This project is sponsored by the EDS-MEMS Standards Development Committee (EDS-MEMS-SDC).

  Title: Standard for Sensor Performance Parameter Definitions

  Scope: This document provides a common framework for sensor performance specification terminology, units, conditions and limits. The   specific sensors discussed in this document are Accelerometer, Magnetometer, Gyrometer/Gyroscope, Barometer/Pressure Sensors,   Hygrometer/Humidity Sensors, Temperature Sensors, Ambient Light Sensors, and Proximity Sensors.

  Purpose: The purpose of this document is to provide a standard methodology for defining sensor performance parameters in order to   facilitate system integration and accelerate time to market. This standard fulfills the need for a common methodology for specifying sensor   performance that will ease the non-scalable integration challenges.

  Need for the Project: With the rapid adoption of sensor technologies in the consumer electronics industry and the   variety of sensor types, vendors, and integration considerations, it is acknowledged that Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs), Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) and other platform providers are faced with a non-scalable integration challenge. Therefore, it is   imperative that a common methodology for specifying sensor performance is adopted by the ever expanding industry. It is intended that adoption burden be minimized and distributed while preserving product differentiation and innovation.
