InvenSense (San Jose, Calif.) claimed that the use of its digital motion processor (DMP) and proprietary algorithms results in a power saving of up to 50 percent compared with competition. As a result, with a 300mAH battery, the ICM-20648 could run a classifier for up to two months and pedometer for up to four months.

The InvenSense ICM-20648’s embedded motion hub solution is designed to offload the protocol processing and event filtering necessary to provide "always on" contextual awareness. The ICM-20648 SoC has been designed to meet the Android Compatibility Test Suite (CTS) sensor requirements for power, performance, and timing accuracy in Android 5.0.

"Included in the new ICM-20648 is InvenSense’s advanced FSYNC solution, which improves image stabilization, measuring true movement of the camera and enables hardwarebased timing alignment of imaging and motion subsystems to synchronize timing such that motion compensation of the image is more accurate, reducing the software complexity for the OEM, and generating a better imaging experience for the end user," said Ali Foughi, vice president of marketing and business development at InvenSense, in a statement.

The InvenSense ICM-20648 solution is available in early Q2 for sampling.
