L3G462A

MEMS motion sensor ± 625 dps full scale 3-axis analog gyroscope
  • Evaluation Evaluation

The L3G462A is a low-power 3-axis angular rate sensor.

It includes a sensing element and an IC interface able to provide the measured angular rate to the external world through three analog outputs.

The sensing element is manufactured using a dedicated micromachining process developed by ST 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 L3G462A is available in a plastic land grid array (LGA) package and can operate within a temperature range from -40 °C to +85 °C.
