TDK InvenSense ICM-20789: 7-Axis Motion Tracking Device

ICM-20789: 7-Axis Motion Tracking Device

ICM-20789: 7-axis Motion Tracking DeviceTDK InvenSense introduces the ICM-20789, which is a 7-axis Motion Tracking device that combines a 3-axis gyroscope, 3-axis accelerometer, a pressure sensor, and a Digital Motion Processor™ (DMP) in a 4 mm x 4 mm x 1.365 mm (24-pin LGA) package.

This unique device offers performance of discrete parts in a single efficient package for tracking rotational and linear motion as well as relative elevation change for a wide range of applications. The pressure sensor is based on capacitive technology with excellent temperature stability as opposed to the more common resistive sensing.

The capacitive pressure sensor has a full range from 300 hPa -1100 hPa which covers from an altitude of around 30,000 feet to Mean Sea level. The pressure sensor has a ±1 hPa absolute accuracy over 300 hPa -1100 hPa and an embedded temperature sensor with I2C bus for communication. It features very low noise at 3.2 Pa with excellent low power consumption at 1.3 uA for always on applications such as mobile navigation and wearable activity tracking.

Please Note: Samples are being offered to volume users until officially released in Q2 of 2017.
