The first MEMS gyroscope of Bosch for Consumer Applications Employing a New Wafer
Bonding Process

More than 10 years after the release of its MEMS gyroscopes for automotive, Bosch
Sensortec release its first 3-Axis gyroscope for consumer applications. In a market
largely dominated by STMicroelectronics and InvenSense, Bosch Sensortec was the first to
release a 3-axis MEMS gyroscope in a 3x3mmsquared package in order to gain market shares.
Although the manufacturing process (Epi-poly surface micromachining) is similar to the one
of automotive gyro, new processes for the capping and the wafer bonding has been adopted.
Indeed, the classic “glass-frit” wafer bonding has been abandoned in favor of an eutectic
