Six-Axis (Gyro + Accelerometer) MEMS MotionTracking™ Devices

Overview

The MPU-6000™ family of parts are the world’s first 6-axis MotionTracking devices designed for the low power, low cost, and high performance requirements of consumer electronics products.

The MPU-6000 family incorporates InvenSense’s MotionFusion™ and run-time calibration firmware that enables manufacturers to eliminate the costly and complex selection, qualification, and system level integration of discrete devices in motion-enabled products, and guarantees that sensor fusion algorithms and calibration procedures deliver optimal performance for consumers.

Motion interface is rapidly becoming a key function in many consumer electronics devices including smartphones, tablets, gaming consoles, and smart-TVs as it provides an intuitive way for consumers to interact with electronic devices by tracking motion in free space and delivering these motions as input commands.

The devices combine a 3-axis gyroscope and a 3-axis accelerometer on the same silicon die together with an onboard Digital Motion Processor™ (DMP™) capable of processing complex 9-axis MotionFusion algorithms. The parts’ integrated 9-axis MotionFusion algorithms access external magnetometers allowing the devices to gather a full set of sensor data.

The InvenSense MotionApps™ Platform that comes with the devices abstracts motion-based complexities, offloads sensor management from the operating system and provides a structured set of APIs for application development.

The MPU-6000 family is comprised of parts listed in the table below. The MPU-6500 devices are targeted for smartphones, tablets, 3D remote controls for Internet connected DTVs and set top boxes, and motion-based game controllers and 3D mice. The MPU-6500 is for smartphones, tablets, and wearable sensor applications.
