The LSM6DSOX contains finite-state machine logic (FSM) and a Machine Learning Core (MLC) that allow classification of motion data based on known patterns. These unique features relieve the main processor from the first stage of activity tracking, saving energy to accelerate motion-based applications. Devices equipped with the LSM6DSOX can deliver a convenient and responsive “always-on” user experience without sacrificing battery runtime.
The device also has more internal memory than conventional sensors and a state-of-the-art high-speed I3C digital interface, allowing shorter connection times and longer periods between interactions with the main controller, resulting in even greater energy savings. The LSM6DSOX boosts performance at 0.55 mA in high-performance mode while offering low-power features for an optimal motion tracking experience.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
