STMicroelectronics just unveiled the Unico GUI , a cross-platform graphical user interface (GUI) that simplifies the finite state machine (FSM) and machine-learning core (MLC) logic configuration of its latest inertial measurement units (IMUs). The Unico GUI runs on Windows , Linux , and Mac OS and interacts with ST’s MEMS sensor demonstration boards including accelerometers, gyroscopes, magnetometers, and environmental sensors supported by the STEVAL-MKI109V3 motherboard.

The recently announced LSM6DSO and LSM6DSOX six-axis modules are also supported by the Unico GUI. The LSM6DSO module contains logic for up to 16 independent state machines that generate a hardware interrupt activated by a specific motion pattern, while the LSM6DSOX module contains the logic to implement multiple-stage decision trees for machine-learning classification.
Features of the Unico GUI include a complete software package for MEMS evaluation boards, programmable voltage power supply between 1.8 V to 3.6 V, sensors current consumption measurement, communication protocol SPI/I 2 C selectable on the fly, and a device firmware upgrade application.
