Low power 9-axis motion sensor 33% smaller

-January 09, 2013

A 9-axis MotionTracking device, the MPU-9250 was unveiled by InvenSense. Housed in a 3 x 3 x 1mm QFN package it is 33% smaller than competitive solutions and at 9.2mW it is the lowest power 9-axis motion sensing device on the market.

The device includes a gyroscope, accelerometer and electronic compass, an onboard Digital Motion Processor, and is calibrated and factory tested. The MPU-9250 targets such applications as mobile devices, wearable sensors, fitness watches and remote health monitoring apps that need low power, small form factor, and high accuracy.

The accelerometer consumes as little as 6.4μA of current in low-power mode. Its compass features a resolution of 16-bits and full-scale measurement range of ±4800μT. Software drivers are compliant with Google’s Android 4.2.1 Jelly Bean, Microsoft Windows 8 and Windows RT and support low-power DMP capabilities for offload. The MPU-9250 is sampling to selected customers with mass production slated for Q2 2013.
