STMicroelectronics (Geneva, Switzerland) has introduced the market’s first
dual-core gyroscope capable of handling both user-motion recognition and
camera image stabilization. ST’s dual-core gyroscope employs separate output
paths optimized for the two different functions in a 4x4x1 mm package.
Addressing power constraints in battery-operated portable devices, the new
gyroscope includes power-down and sleep modes and an embedded FIFO memory
block for smarter power management. The sensor outputs data through
independent I2C and SPI interfaces and offers additional digital embedded
features, such as configurable low- and high-pass filters. The gyroscope
embeds a temperature sensor and can operate with any supply voltage over the
range of 2.4 to 3.6V.
