INVENSENSE INTRODUCES THE WORLD’S SMALLEST DUAL-AXIS GYROSCOPES FOR OPTICAL IMAGE STABILIZATION IN SMARTPHONES

INVENSENSE INTRODUCES THE WORLD’S SMALLEST DUAL-AXIS GYROSCOPES FOR OPTICAL IMAGE STABILIZATION IN SMARTPHONES

InvenSense, Inc., the leading provider of MotionProcessing™Solutions for consumer electronics, today announced the introduction of a family of dual-axis gyroscopes, IDG-2020 and IXZ-2020, that address the market needs for optical image stabilization (OIS) in smartphones. Smartphones are rapidly replacing digital still cameras (DSC) as the devices of choice for capturing images; however, their image quality has generally been worse than DSCs due to blurry images, especially those taken in low-light conditions. By incorporating OIS technology, the same method adopted by many digital still camera manufacturers, smartphone image quality can be dramatically enhanced.

MEMSIC Introduces World’s Smallest and Most Robust Digital Accelerometer With Features Never Before Available at This Price- Point

MEMSIC Introduces World’s Smallest and Most Robust Digital Accelerometer With Features Never Before Available at This Price- Point

MEMSIC Inc.a leading provider of MEMS devices and sensor- based systems has announced the availability of its MXC6226XC MEMS two-axis digital accelerometer, the world’s smallest, fully-integrated MEMS accelerometer. Based on MEMSIC’s patented MEMS thermal technology, it is manufactured using a standard 0.18um CMOS process and advanced wafer- level packaging (WLP). The resulting device demonstrates MEMSIC’s leadership in providing state-of-the-art motion sensing functions at a price- point never before available to designers of cost sensitive systems like cell phones, toys, games, cameras and appliances. The MXC6226XC accelerometer provides superior performance and functionality to designers who have previously not been able to consider motion sensing for their products. MEMSIC’s MXC6226XC enables designers to significantly enhance the value of their product. It also serves as a high value-added replacement to designs employing mechanical switches, which are much less reliable and less capable.
