GRAZ, Austria, April 15, 2010 — SensorDymanics, a micro and wireless semiconductor products manufacturer, has launched its two- and three-axis gyroscopes.

Its patented sensor elements are fabricated by the PSM-X2 MEMS process, which is available for 8-in. wafers. They can be used as standalone components or combined with a 3-D accelerometer.

The company will offer the 2- and 3-D MEMS gyroscopes as standalone products for use in industry, automation engineering, medicine and navigation applications. Additionally, an automotive version for the -40 to 125 °C temperature range that is certified to AEC-Q1000 is in the works.

Produced using its patented dual-cavity technology, the 3-D device will be integrated with a 3-D accelerometer to offer a complete inertial measurement unit with six degrees of freedom on a few square millimeters of chip space, said the company.
