IDG-650 Integrated Dual-Axis Gyroscope


InvenSense Integrated Dual-Axis Gyroscope

The IDG-650 is the world’s first integrated dual-axis MEMS rate gyroscope designed for high performance game controllers and A/V remote controllers which require wide dynamic range motion processing, high impact shock resistance and low cost.

With a full scale range of 2,000°/sec to track the widest range of physical motions without saturating the gyroscope, the IDG-650 also supports high 0.5mV/°/sec sensitivity in a compact 4x5x1.2mm package size. The product uses InvenSense’s patented MEMS technology with vertically driven, vibrating masses to make a functionally complete, low-cost, dual-axis angular rate sensor.

An innovative vibrating dual-mass in-plane sensing configuration senses the rate of rotation about the X- and Y-axis, resulting in a highly integrated dual-axis gyro with guaranteed-by-design vibration rejection and high cross-axis isolation. The IDG-650 also includes an integrated AutoZero feature for minimizing bias drift over temperature.

The IDG-650 includes all the integrated electronics required for complete application-ready functionality. Factory-trimmed scale factors eliminate the need for external active components and end-user calibration.

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.
