The MPU-6500 is TDK’s second-generation 6-axis MotionTracking device for smartphones, tablets, wearable sensors, and other consumer markets. The MPU-6500 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). 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.

The InvenSense MPU-6050 parts are the worlds first MotionTracking devices designed for the low power, low cost, and high-performance requirements of smartphones, tablets and wearable sensors.

The InvenSense MPU-6050 devices combine a 3-axis gyroscope and a 3-axis accelerometer on the same silicon die, together with an onboard Digital Motion Processor (DMP), which processes complex 6-axis MotionFusion algorithms. The MPU-6050 sensor contains a MEMS accelerometer and a MEMS gyro in a single chip. It is very accurate since it contains 16-bits analog to digital conversion hardware for each channel. Therefore it captures the x, y, and z channels at the same time.
