ZMOTION® 20-Pin Detection and Control MCU with Lens and Pyroelectric Sensor Selection Options

If you don’t have your own lenses and pyros but need more analog input and/or additional sensing options than an 8-pin package will provide, Zilog offers the 20-pin ZMOTION MCU. Like the 8-pin version, you can optimize the performance of your product by choosing a lens and pyro to match your application. Zilog combines the ZMOTION MCU and integrated motion detection algorithms with a selection of lenses and PIR sensors to fit a wide range of applications. Zilog’s family of lenses spans 360-degree ceiling, 180-degree wall mount, 15-meter long range and 5-meter short range. API settings are provided to match the PIR engine operation to each of our lens and PIR sensor combinations.

PIR motion-detection technology provides a dramatic improvement in both sensitivity and stability over traditional designs and is scalable to many market segments including Lighting Control, HVAC, Access Control, Vending, Display, Proximity, Power Management, Occupancy Sensing, and many others.

The ZMOTION 20-Pin MCU is programmed with application software that offers hardware and serial modes of operation. It is designed to be modified for your own custom application while taking full advantage of ZMOTION technology.
