IDG-500 Integrated Dual-Axis Gyroscope


InvenSense Integrated Dual-Axis Gyroscope

The IDG-500 MEMS rate gyroscope is an integrated dual-axis angular rate sensor designed specifically for complex motion processing of A/V and PC remotes, as well as gaming controllers.

Offering significant performance and packaging improvements over the IDG-300, the IDG-500 delivers 500°/sec full scale range and 2mV/°/sec sensitivity in a 44% smaller 4x5x1.2mm package size making it ideal for general motion processing applications. With the addition of the patented Auto Zero feature for minimizing bias drift over temperature, the IDG-500 offers unparalleled performance over competitive products.

The device leverages InvenSense’s patented and proprietary Nasiri-Fabrication design and manufacturing platform, where the MEMS and CMOS control electronics are bonded and hermetically sealed, allowing direct electrical interconnections and testing at the wafer level. This approach minimizes parasitic capacitance and improves signal-to-noise ratios versus competitive solutions.

This product is RoHS and Green Compliant.
