Six-Axis Accel-Gyro Combo Sensors Trim Power Consumption

Six-Axis Accel-Gyro Combo Sensors Trim Power Consumption
Kionix Inc.

Now in mass production, the KXG03, and the KXG07 and KXG08 six-axis accelerometer-gyroscope combos represent a significant technological leap forward in reducing the power consumption of six-axis solutions. The KXG07 and KXG08 employ proprietary technology that dramatically lowers the power consumption of the gyroscope. The KXG08 comes in a conventional 2.5 mm x 3 mm x 0.9 mm 14-pin LGA, while the KXG07 is offered in a 3 mm x 3 mm x 0.9 mm 16-pin LGA package. They enable full high-speed operation of the onboard accelerometer, gyroscope, and temperature sensor at power consumption levels as low as 0.2 mA. They also include synchronization functionality, a 4,096-byte buffer and support for controlling and acquiring data from external sensors. The KXG07 and KXG08 will start sampling next month.
