The Smallest 6-Axis IMU (3-Axis Gyro + 3-Axis Accelero)
InvenSense’s Second Generation 6-Axis Devices for Consumer Applications

In a market very disputed with STMicroelectronics and Bosch, InvenSense is still at
the leading edge technically by providing 6Axis IMU with a high level of integration.

With a package size of 3x3mm (45% footprint reduction compared to the previous
generation), the MPU-6500 is the smallest 6-Axis IMU for consumer applications.

This package reduction has been made possible thanks to a new design of the 3-axis
gyroscope which now uses a single structure vibratory compared to three different
structures for the previous generation of gyros. This new design results in a shrink of
40% of the 3-axis gyro area. The second benefice of this new design is that cavities which
were traditionally etched in the ASIC to allow MEMS structures moving are no longer used,
thus resulting in cost reduction.

This report will provides a complete teardown of the MEMS IMU with:
