World's first integrated 7-axis MEMS MotionTracking platform

Targeting mobile and wearable devices such as smartphones, tablets, fitness bands and smart watches, the ICM-20728 integrated 7-axis MEMS SoC has been announced by InvenSense. The company claim that the ICM-20728 is the world's first integrated 7-axis (3-axis gyroscope, 3-axis accelerometer and pressure sensor) single chip platform solution with onboard Digital Motion Processor (DMP).

For the first time, a single SoC delivers MotionTracking with absolute and relative altitude change for navigation, health and fitness applications. Highlighting InvenSense's 'AlwaysOn' vision, the ICM-20728 SoC consumes just 2mW with full 7-axis and DMP active. This fully autonomous 7-axis motion tracking solution delivers new features, including: self calibration for continuous high performance over extended lifetime; activity classification and analysis for fitness and context aware applications; and altimeter function for indoor/outdoor 3D navigation.

Furthermore, the InvenSense platform includes a programming environment for custom motion feature development with InvenSense Gesture Language tools and the MotionApps software is fully compliant with, and drop-in ready, for multiple operating systems, including Google's latest Android KitKat release.

Ali Foughi, Vice President, Marketing and Business Development, InvenSense, comments: "InvenSense's integrated 7-axis platform with embedded processing is another technological breakthrough for the MEMS industry. With this device, InvenSense enables a new class of 'AlwaysOn' applications and services, such as indoor navigation, activity tracking and fitness."

Sampling of the InvenSense ICM-20728 will commence within the first half of 2014.
