New Delhi: STMicroelectronics (NYSE: STM), a worldwide semiconductor frontrunner aiding customers transversely aboard the continuum of electronics applications, the globe’s topmost MEMS manufacturer, and the principal supplier of MEMS sensors meant for consumer and portable applications , has familiarized a new 2-axis gyroscope precisely augmented for optical image stabilization in smartphones and digital still cameras.
Broadening from the compact dimensions of just 2.3×2.3×0.7mm, the L2G2IS can be with no trouble integrated into the subsequent generation of stabilized camera modules; where in the dimensions of the components are critical. At a size 50% smaller than that of the aforementioned generation by area and 60% smaller by volume, the L2G2IS still affords the high performance necessitated by the applications and clients.
“Optical Image Stabilization has become an essential feature in today’s smartphones and digital still cameras, thanks to the availability of dedicated MEMS gyroscopes,” Reportedly said Fabio Pasolini, General Manager, Motion MEMS Division, STMicroelectronics. Volumnising further that “With the L2G2IS, ST has once again raised the bar and set a new standard, dramatically reducing the volume and area required by this key function.”
Vital technical features of the new-fangled device consist of ±100dps / ±200dps full-scale range, 3- and 4-wire SPI interface, and integrated low- and high-pass filters with selectable bandwidth. The L2G2IS from its quarter goes on to maneuver with a supply voltage range of 1.7V to 3.6V.
The major enterprise to outstrip $1-billion in MEMS revenue and the one-stop MEMS purveyor of choice, ST offers an all-inclusive portfolio of micro-machined accelerometers, gyroscopes, pressure sensors, magnetic sensors, and microphones, and has the aptitude to integrate these in multi-sensor combos with on-board signal processing, control functions, sensor-fusion algorithms, and wireless connectivity. Not only the clear market spearhead, ST correspondingly stays at the forefront of MEMS technology development with more than 900 MEMS-related patents granted or pending worldwide.
Samples of ST’s new 2-axis L2G2IS gyroscope are accessible now and budgetary unit valuing is $1.70 for orders over 1,000 pieces.
