InvenSense announce the world’s smallest, lowest profile, and lowest power 6-axis solution, the MPU-6521 MEMS SoC. The slim profile MPU-6521 is targeted for the next-generation of smartphones, tablets, gaming devices, motion-based remote controls, and wearable sensors. At 6.1mW, the MPU-6521 consumes 60% less power than competing solutions.
To enable the precision required for pedestrian navigation and wearable sensor applications, the MPU-6521’s integrated gyroscope achieves low noise performance of 0.01 dps/vHz. The MPU-6521 MEMS SoC includes the patented Digital Motion Processor with integrated MotionFusion, run-time calibration, and system-level power optimization features.
“InvenSense is enabling the thinnest consumer electronics on the market. By leveraging our patented technology platform, InvenSense enables lower profile designs while at the same time delivering the performance that competitors can not achieve with their legacy MEMS manufacturing processes,” said Ali Foughi, Vice President of Marketing and Business Development at InvenSense. “With the MPU-6521, we are setting a new industry standard and extending our market leadership.”
The MPU-6521 will be sampled to select customers in Q2 2013.
