Dual-Core Gyroscope

altSTMicroelectronics (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.
