InvenSense, Inc. (NYSE: INVN), the leading provider of MotionTracking ™ devices for consumer electronics, announced that its HID (Human Interface Device) and User-Mode Driver (UMD) motion sensing solutions for Windows 8 and Windows RT are in high-volume production with multiple Tier-1 Ultrabook™ and tablet manufacturers. In collaboration with Microsoft, InvenSense ported its MotionApps™ software to the new Windows 8 OS and its solutions are now WHCK-certified for both Intel and ARM architectures. This allows for rapid integration of InvenSense MotionTracking devices along with robust and field-proven MotionApps software, providing OEMs with a one-stop sensor subsystem solution.
InvenSense provides Windows 8 Ultrabook and tablet manufacturers the option of implementing either a sensor hub solution inside a microcontroller using the HID protocol, or the lower-cost option of a hub-less UMD solution. Using InvenSense intelligent MotionTracking devices, both solutions meet Microsoft’s requirements for low-power screen orientation and connected standby mode. The UMD solution manages Windows 8 protocols for low-power operation inside the intelligent MotionTracking hardware, without the need for a costly, discrete microcontroller sensor hub. Alternatively, the sensor hub solution supports both HID-over-USB and HID-over-I 2C protocols running on popular microcontroller architectures.
“We share the industry’s excitement for Windows 8,” said Ali Foughi, Vice President of Marketing and Business Development at InvenSense. “Windows 8 is a perfect platform for our MotionApps software, which has already shipped in over 50 million smartphones and tablets worldwide. InvenSense’s HID and UMD solution software for Windows 8 and Windows RT, paired with our leading MotionTracking devices, provides manufacturers with the flexibility to implement sensor subsystems that meet performance and cost targets for consumers.”
InvenSense MotionTracking devices and MotionApps software for Windows 8 and Windows RT are available today.
