TDK InvenSense at CDI
High Precision 6-Axis MEMS MotionTracking™ Device

The ICM-42688-P is a 6-axis MEMS MotionTracking device that combines a 3-axis gyroscope and a 3-axis accelerometer. It has a configurable host interface that supports I3C, I²C, and SPI serial communication.

It features a 2 kB FIFO and 2 programmable interrupts with ultra-low-power wake-on-motion support to minimize system power consumption. Other industry-leading features include InvenSense on-chip APEX Motion Processing engine for gesture recognition, activity classification, pedometer, programmable digital filters, and an embedded temperature sensor.
