STMicroelectronics Introduces World’s Smallest 3-Axis Digital Gyroscope
STMicroelectronics has expanded its motion-sensing portfolio with the addition of the market’s smallest three-axis digital-output gyroscope. ST’s L3G3200D enables advanced motion sensing in ever-shrinking form factors of next-generation mobile phones, tablets and other smart consumer devices, by reducing the package size by almost half over current-generation sensors.
Leveraging a well-consolidated single-sensing structure, the new 3 x 3.5 x 1 mm gyroscope exhibits excellent robustness and immunity to mechanical stress, along with outstanding temperature stability to deliver high-performance motion measurement along all three orthogonal axes 2.

Addressing power constraints in battery-operated portable devices, ST’s new gyroscope includes power-down and sleep modes, and an embedded FIFO (first-in first-out) memory block for smarter power management. It can operate with any supply voltage over the range of 2.4 to 3.6V with selectable full-scale ranges of ±250/500/2000 dps.

The L3G3200D gyroscope provides a 16-bit data output on the interrupt and data-ready lines and it integrates low- and high-pass filters with user-selectable bandwidth. The device operates over an extended temperature range from -40°C to +85°C and includes a temperature sensor with an 8-bit data output.

Samples of ST’s L3G3200D gyroscope are available now. Unit pricing is $2.53 in quantities of 1,000 pieces. Further pricing options are available for larger quantities.
