The MPU-6500 is the company’s second-generation 6-axis MotionTracking device for smartphones, tablets, wearable sensors, and other consumer markets. The MPU-6500, delivered in a 3 mm x 3 mm x 0.9 mm QFN package, addresses the market requirements for high-performance applications such as pedestrian navigation, context-aware advertising, and other location-based services. The device also supports the specifications for emerging wearable sensor applications, such as remote health monitoring, sports and fitness tracking, and other consumer applications.

The single-chip MPU-6500 integrates a 3-axis accelerometer, a 3-axis gyroscope, and an onboard Digital Motion Processor™ (DMP) in a small, 3 mm x 3 mm x 0.9mm QFN package. The 6-axis device is the world’s first motion sensor to operate at 1.8 volts and consumes only 6.1 mW of power in full operating mode. It incorporates gyroscope performance of only ±5 dps zero-rate-output and 0.01 dps/√Hz of noise, and delivers accelerometer specifications including a typical offset of ±60 mg, 300 µg/√Hz of noise, and 18 µA of current in low-power mode.

• TouchAnywhere™ technology (for “no touch” UI Application Control/Navigation)
• MotionCommand™ technology (for Gesture Short-cuts)
• Motion-enabled game and application framework
• Location based services, points of interest, and dead reckoning
• Handset and portable gaming
• Motion-based game controllers
• 3D remote controls for Internet connected DTVs and set top boxes, 3D mice
• Wearable sensors for health, fitness and sports
