STMicroelectronics LSM333D 4x4mm 9-Axis IMU Reverse Costing Analysis

Dublin, Oct. 21, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Research and Markets
( has announced the addition of the "STMicroelectronics LSM333D 4x4mm 9-Axis IMU Reverse Costing Analysis" report to their offering.

System Plus Consulting is proud to publish the reverse costing report of the new 9-DOF IMU supplied by STMicroelectronics.

The LSM333D is a 4x4mm system-in-package featuring a 3axisgyroscope, a 3-axis accelerometer and a 3-axismagnetometer.

ST achieves to obtain this package footprint by combining the 3-axis gyroscope and the 3-axis accelerometer function on the same die. This new structure, combined with an Au-Au hermetic bonding process allow ST's to shrink the 6-axis function by more than 35%.

The LSM333D is targeted for portable applications: indoor navigation, smart user interface, advanced gesture recognition, gaming and virtual reality input device It provides accurate output across full-scale ranges up to ±2000dps (rotational acceleration), ±16g (linear acceleration) and ±12 Gauss (magnetic field).
