InvenSense, Inc. (NYSE:INVN), the leading provider of MotionTracking ™ devices, today announced its entry into the industrial market with the introduction of its MPU-3300, the world’s first single-chip, high performance integrated 3-axis industrial gyroscope. Leveraging the company’s proven high volume production capabilities, InvenSense is providing high performance, high reliability, low power and low cost with ultra-precise positioning and monitoring information for industrial applications. Drastically cutting the size through integration, MPU-3300 is 10X smaller than currently shipping industrial gyroscopes. Industrial product designers can easily assemble the single-chip, three-axis digital gyroscope into their devices with the highest degree of axis alignment vs. assembling three discrete gyroscope devices. The MPU-3300 also offers more than 100% lower noise compared to alternative offerings, providing accurate measurements for critical industrial applications.
“InvenSense has demonstrated leadership and innovation in the consumer electronics market, with the world’s first integrated 2-axis gyroscope, 3-axis gyroscope, and single-chip integrated 6-axis MotionTracking device,” said Steve Nasiri founder and CEO of InvenSense. “The MPU-3300 leverages our core technical expertise in design and manufacturing of MEMS gyroscopes, and offers the latest in integration and performance for the industrial market with the best combination of high performance, low cost, low power, small size, and long-term reliability.”
The MPU-3300, with a bias instability of 15 degrees/hour, is highly suited for a range of industrial applications including Attitude Heading Reference Systems (AHRS) which require extremely stable performance for precision-attitude tracking. AHRS systems are found in aerospace, robotics, and other applications where the orientation of a device must be measured. Navigation systems in industrial vehicles, aircraft and ships can also benefit from the highly accurate gyroscope technology while manufacturers of industrial instruments such as hand-held inventory control devices value the low-power consumption of the MPU-3300 at less than 10mW. Other applications that can benefit from the new MPU-3300 include antenna stabilization, precision robotics, inventory control systems, survey instruments, factory equipment, industrial power tools, Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs), precision agricultural machinery, guidance and steering products, and construction equipment.
