3-axis digital accelerometer with a 2-axis digital gyroscope in a single device

STMicroelectronics has announced a motion sensor module with 3-axis digital accelerometer with a 2-axis digital gyroscope in a single device. This module is suggested for mobile applications such as mobile phones, navigation systems, game controls and many other portable electronic devices where MEMS based sensors are becoming must.

This motion-sensing module detects acceleration up to 16 g and angular rate up to 2000 dps along the pitch and yaw axes 2. The highlights of this product as per ST are advanced design of the mechanical sensing structure, best-in-class stability over time and temperature for zero-g offset, zero-rate and sensitivity. ST said it has already sold 1.2 billion motion sensors.


The type of applications include intuitive user interfaces in mobile phones, game consoles, pointers, remotes and other smart consumer devices; dead-reckoning and map-matching in advanced navigation systems; smart power saving and free-fall detection in portable electronics; and vibration monitoring and compensation.

ST's multi-sensor module includes power-down and sleep modes and an embedded FIFO (first-in first-out) memory block.
