MEMS motion sensor: three-axis digital output gyroscope for optical image stabilization

The L3G3IS is a three-axis MEMS gyroscope for optical image stabilization applications.

It includes a sensing element and an IC interface capable of providing the measured angular rate to the external world through an SPI digital interface.

The unique sensing element is manufactured using a dedicated micromachining process developed by STMicroelectronics to produce inertial sensors and actuators on silicon wafers.

The IC interface is manufactured using a CMOS process that allows a high level of integration to design a dedicated circuit which is trimmed to better match the sensing element characteristics.

The L3G3IS is available in a plastic land grid array (LGA) package and can operate over a temperature range of -40 °C to +85 °C.
