April 11, 2012 — Research and Markets released the "ST L3G3250A 3-axis MEMS Gyroscope Reverse Costing Analysis" report, providing a teardown of STMicroelectronics’ micro electro mechanical system (MEMS) gyroscope in a land-grid array (LGA) package.
The package has a 3.5 x 3 x 1mm footprint, which is the smallest 3-axis gyroscope including VTI’s CMR3000, the report says. It is 27-40% smaller by volume (35% smaller by footprint) than the other main gyroscopes for consumer applications in production today, which typically have a 4mm2 footprint.
