With analysts’ expectations of a $1.04B market by 2014, it is no surprise that Kionix has applied its MEMS expertise to consumer gyroscopes. The company offers both digital and analog versions of its dual-axis KGY12 and tri-axis KGY13. The 16-bit digital outputs (I2C and SPI) have a measurement range of ±2048°/sec. Analog outputs are available in user-selectable ranges of ±256°/sec, ±512°/sec, ±1024°/sec and ±2048°/sec. Both gyros are offered in a 5x5x0.9mm 24-pin land grid array (LGA) package and have user-definable bandwidth and embedded temperature sensors.
