The ISZ-2510 is a single-chip, digital output, single axis MEMS gyroscope IC which features a 512-byte FIFO. The FIFO can lower the traffic on the serial bus interface, and reduce power consumption by allowing the system processor to burst read sensor data and then go into a low-power mode.

The gyroscope includes a programmable full-scale range of ±250, ±500, ±1000, and ±2000 degrees/sec, very low Rate noise at 0.01 dps/√Hz and extremely low power consumption at 2.8mA. Factory-calibrated initial sensitivity reduces production-line calibration requirements.

Other industry-leading features include on-chip 16-bit ADCs, programmable digital filters, a precision clock with 1% drift from -40°C to 85°C, an embedded temperature sensor, and programmable interrupts. The device features I2C and SPI serial interfaces, a VDD operating range of 1.71 to 3.6V, and a separate digital IO supply, VDDIO from 1.71V to 3.6V.

By leveraging its patented and volume-proven CMOS-MEMS fabrication platform, which integrates MEMS wafers with companion CMOS electronics through wafer-level bonding, InvenSense has driven the gyro package size down to a footprint and thickness of 3x3x0.9mm (16-pin QFN), to provide a very small yet high performance low cost package. The device provides high robustness by supporting 10,000shock reliability.
