6-axis MEMS aids image stabilization

March 31, 2016 // By Peter Clarke
InvenSense has launched the ICG-20660L, a 6-axis MEMS device intended to go onto a main PCB and support optical image stabilization.

The component includes 3-axis accelerometer and 3-axis gyroscope and also includes macro image stabilization, which is photography in extreme close up and susceptible to hand jitter.

The ICG-20660L addresses this challenge by allowing the OIS-Macro motion sensor to be placed on the main board of a phone without the need for dynamic calibration at the phone level during production.

The ICG-20660L also comes in gyro-only 3-axis version, the ICG-20330L. Both are in production and available to customers.
