InvenSense Launches Dual-Axis Gyroscope for Smartphone Applications

InvenSense launches two gyroscopes that belong to the family of dual-axis gyroscopes, IDG-2020 and IXZ-2020. These gyroscopes are used in applications such as optical image stabilization (OIS) in smartphones.

IDG-2000 gyroscopes

Smart phones are taking the place of digital cameras (DSC) for capturing images. Image stabilization was a drawback with the images captured by smart phones. Using these gyroscopes, this drawback can be eliminated.

InvenSense has addressed the need for a compact, high-performance MEMS-based gyroscope for use in smart phones for achieving OIS. The new family of gyroscopes are of a very small dimension (3 X 3 X 0.75 mm) and deliver the high performance for incorporating OIS in smart phones. Other features that the gyroscopes offer are 16-bit analog to digital Conversion, low power consumption and a drive frequency of 27 kHz. With these gyroscopes, users will be able to capture images of eight megapixel resolution with smart phones. The gyroscopes are built on the Nasiri-fabrication process which integrates MEMS mechanical structures with the CMOS electronics at the wafer level itself. This design is specifically used for addressing the OIS requirements in smart phones and for a full scale output of +/- 32 dps and a high performance of 32kHz ADC. The gyroscopes are able to block interference from external noise etc.
