STMicroelectronics L3G4200DH Three-Axis Digital Gyroscope

STMicroelectronics rolled out the L3G4200DH 3-axis digital-output gyroscope. The L3G4200DH motion sensor features a FIFO (first-in first-out) memory block for smarter power management. The FIFO memory block stores up to 96 levels, split in 32 sample sets of x-, y-, and z-axis data. The FIFO can be programmed for several different operating modes to raise a dedicated watermark (reference) interrupt when the memory is filled to a desired level. Volume production is scheduled for mid Q3 2010 and the unit price is $2.9 in quantities of 200,000 pieces.
