InvenSense™ Introduces Family of 'AlwaysOn' MEMS Solutions for the Smartphone Market
SAN JOSE, Calif --(Business Wire)--
Inc. (NYSE: INVN), the leading provider of MotionTracking
sensor system on chip (SoC) and Sound
devices, announces a family of motion and audio solutions for the
smartphone market enabling a complete 'AlwaysOn' experience. The
InvenSense ICM-20628 (world's lowest power 6-axis motion SoC), the
ICS-40160 (best in class analog microphone) and ICS-40310 (world's
lowest-current microphone) are sampling to select customers. These new
'AlwaysOn' solutions embrace InvenSense's vision to be the leading
provider of sensor SoC by enabling the most seamless sensing experience
at the lowest power. InvenSense has created a platform for sensor
integration by combining best in class sensors with powerful algorithms
and embedded software.
The single chip ICM-20628 SoC offers the world's highest performance and
lowest power fully autonomous 6-axis motion tracking solution. Combining
industry leading gyroscope and accelerometer specifications with
InvenSense third generation digital motion processing and algorithms
this SoC consumes less than 2mW. This unprecedented performance and
power is achieved while delivering new features, such as:
Self calibration for continuous high performance over extended lifetime
Activity classification for fitness and context aware applications
Data storage and batching for collecting motion history and external
InvenSense's ICM-20628 MotionApps software is fully compliant with, and
drop-in ready for, multiple operating systms, including Google's latest
Android (News - Alert) KitKat release.
The InvenSense ICS-40160 MEMS microphone is best in class and draws only
50 �A in its low-power mode, while providing excellent 65 dB SNR in its
high-performance mode. This product is ideal for smartphone applications
requiring high performance, lower power and 'AlwaysOn' keyword detection.
With a supply current of 17 �A, the InvenSense ICS-40310 microphone
consumes less than half the power of the nearest competitor, making it
ideal for a dedicated 'AlwaysOn' audio sensor. The InvenSense low-noise
analog microphone also provides high SNR performance of 64dB.
"Smartphones are an essential component of the Internet of Things (IoT),
collecting and communicating ever increasing sensor data to the cloud,
while consuming more power," said Ali Foughi, Vice President of
Marketing and Business Development at InvenSense. "By providing the
world's lowest power Motion and Sound solutions, InvenSense enables an
'AlwaysOn' sensing experience with key features such as keyword
recognition, activity recognition and location tracking."
