Motion sensing is at the heart of several new features in consumer products including cell phone, tablet PCs and games. InvenSense has been a major player in these applications but its newest product family makes motion sensing even easier to design and manufacturer. MPU-6000 product family integrates a 3-axis gyroscope and a 3-axis accelerometer on the same silicon die together with an onboard Digital Motion Processor (DMP). The DMP can process the complex 9-axis sensor fusion algorithms required for motion sensing. Offered in a 4x4x0.9 mm QFN package, the MPU-6000’s sensor fusion algorithms utilize an external magnetometer output through its master I2C bus to provide dead reckoning functionality.
