STMicroeletronics Debuts Tiny Gyroscopes for Gaming, Navigation, Other Handheld Units
STMicroeletronics Debuts Tiny Gyroscopes for Gaming, Navigation, Other Handheld Units

STMicroelectronics has introduced a new series of single- and multi-axis gyroscopes designed for micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS).
The gyroscopes are designed to provide angular-motion detection for electronic units handled by humans, including gaming, remote-pointing, car navigation, camera and other applications.

Both the single-axis (yaw only) and two-axis (pitch-and-roll, pitch-and-yaw) gyroscopes support a range of between 30 and 6,000 degrees per second and a wide-enough temperature range that they can deliver full accuracy at most temperatures without an additional temperature compensation unit.

Samples are available now, and mass production is expected to begin in the third quarter of this year.
Unit pricing is $2.50 for quantities in the tens of thousands. More information is available at http://www.st.com/mems.
