InvenSense (Sunnyvale, CA) has introduced the MPU-9250 9-axis motion sensing device housed in 3 × 3 × 1 mm QFN package. The full integrated device includes a gyroscope, accelerometer, and electronic compass, with an onboard Digital Motion Processor. The accelerometer consumes 6.4 mA of current in low-power mode. The compass has a resolution of 16 bits, and full-scale measurement range of ±4800 μT. It is supported by the company’s MotionApps software. The software drivers are fully compliant with Google’s Android 4.2.1 Jelly Bean, Microsoft Windows 8, and Windows RT releases, and support low-power DMP capabilities that offload the host processor to reduce power consumption and simplify application development.
