Invensense® expands into Industrial Applications with the World's first Single-Chip, Integrated High-Performance 3-Axis industrial Gyroscope
MPU-3300 breakthroughs include more than 100% lower noise, 10X smaller size, and a 3X price advantage vs. other industrial gyroscopes
"InvenSense has demonstrated leadership and innovation in the consumer electronics market, with the world's first integrated 2-axis gyroscope, 3-axis gyroscope, and single chip integrated 6-axis MotionTracking device," said Steve Nasiri founder and CEO of InvenSense. "The MPU-3300 leverages our core technical expertise in design and manufacturing of MEMS gyroscopes, and offers the latest in integration and performance for the industrial market with the best combination of high performance, low cost, low power, small size, and long-term reliability."
The MPU-3300, with a bias instability of 15 degrees/hour, is highly suited for a range of industrial applications including Attitude Heading Reference Systems (AHRS) which require extremely stable performance for precision-attitude tracking. AHRS systems are found in aerospace, robotics, and other applications where the orientation of a de-vice must be measured. Navigation systems in industrial vehicles, aircraft and ships can also benefit from the highly accurate gyroscope technology while manufacturers of industrial instruments such as hand-held inventory control devices value the low-power consumption of the MPU-3300 at less than 10mW. Other applications that can benefit from the new MPU-3300 include antenna stabilization, precision robotics, inventory control systems, survey instruments, factory equipment, industrial power tools, Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs), precision agricultural machinery, guidance and steering products, and construction equipment.
The MPU-3300 features a factory calibrated, monolithic 3-axis gyroscope in a small 4x4x0.9mm QFN package that simplifies placement, alignment and calibration tasks for easy integration into space-constrained products. It is designed for operation in temperatures ranging from -40°C to +105°C, making it ideally suited for harsh indus-trial environments. The MPU-3300 sensitivity scale factor variation over this temperature range is ±2%, and zero-rate output variation over this temperature range is ±0.14dps/°C. MPU-3300 also offers industry leading noise performance at 0.005dps/√Hz which is significantly better than competitor industrial gyroscope per-formance of 0.01 to 0.03dps/√Hz. Moreover, the MPU-3300 includes high resolution 16-bit analog-to-digital converters (ADCs), programmable digital filters, low current consumption of only 3.6mA, an embedded temperature sensor, and both SPI and I2C interfaces.
The MPU-3300 is available now in mass production and is priced at $35 USD in 1000 unit quantities, an industry breakthrough price point compared to multichip industrial gyroscopes solutions. The MPU-3300 is being demonstrated in booth #601 at the Sensors Expo Conference in Rosemont, Illinois, June 6-7, 2012.
