L3G4ISMEMS motion sensor: three-axis digital output gyroscope for gaming and OIS
The L3G4IS is the first three-axis MEMS gyroscope that enables both user interface and image stabilization applications at the same time.
Thanks to two different independent reading chains and digital interfaces, the L3G4IS delivers previously unseen levels of flexibility to the end user. Each reading chain and the corresponding full-scale can be activated by powering two separate pins, the internal ASIC blocks automatically detect and enable the selected device configuration.
The unique sensing element is manufactured using a dedicated micro-machining process developed by STMicroelectronics to produce inertial sensors and actuators on silicon wafers.
The L3G4IS is available in a plastic land grid array (LGA) package and can operate within a temperature range of -30 °C to +85 °C.
- Three selectable full-scales (250/500/2000 dps) for gaming applications
- ± 65 dps full-scale for OIS applications
- Independent I2C and SPI digital interfaces
- Embedded temperature sensor
- Integrated low- and high-pass filters with user-selectable bandwidth
- Wide supply voltage range: 2.4 V to 3.6 V
- Low voltage-compatible IOs (1.8 V)
- Power-down and sleep mode for smart power saving
- Embedded FIFO (first-in first-out buffer)
- ECOPACK® RoHS and “Green” compliant
