Combo Gyro and Accelerometer from Kionix

Kionix Inc.

The KXG02 from Kionix Inc., Ithaca, NY, is a low-power, low-current 3-axis gyroscope and 3-axis accelerometer combination device for high-volume consumer applications. Features include user-programmable ±256°/s, ±512°/s, ±1024°/s, and ±2048°/s (gyro) and ±2 g, ±4 g, ±8 g F.S. (accelerometer) ranges; a 4 mA max. operating current; I2C outputs; low-power embedded wake-up function with an interrupt engine that is user-configurable to report when qualified changes in acceleration occur; and the ability to enable or disable specific axes and directions and specify the delay time. The device enables 6 degrees of freedom sensing for tables, smartphones, television remote controls, video game consoles, and other consumer electronics. Integrated support for third-party magnetometers enables 9 degrees-of-freedom sensing.
