Fujitsu Siemens chooses STMicro sensors for free fall detection

Fujitsu Siemens will use STMicroelectronics' free-fall detection solution consisting of a 3-axis motion sensor and software to protect it's new Esprimo Mobile family of professional notebooks.
When the sensor detects a possible free-fall event of the notebook, it automatically prompts the system to move the magnetic read/write head of the hard0disk drive to a safe position before hitting the ground thereby maintaining data integrity.
