This New Product Brief (NPB) is part of a video series highlighting the features, applications, and technical specs of newly-released products.

TDK InvenSense 6-Axis Motion-Tracking IMUs

TDK InvenSense ICM-42688-P 6-Axis Motion-Tracking IMUs combine high-resolution motion tracking and ultra-low-power operation in a tiny package. 

The accelerometer and gyroscope in the ICM-42688-P both offer ultra-low noise performance and high relative accuracy. The IMU has integrated ADCs and user-programmable digital filters and provides 18-bit accelerometer readings and 19-bit gyroscope readings over a serial interface that supports I3C℠, I²C and SPI, with a 2kB FIFO and 2 programmable interrupts that allow the host to remain in a low-power state and burst read data as needed. 

The ICM-42688-P simplifies development with an on-chip APEX Motion processing engine capable of gesture recognition and activity classification as well as ultra-low-power wake-on-motion functionality to minimize system power consumption. 

  • 18-bit Accelerometer: ±2g to ±16g full-scale range, 70 μg/√Hz noise 
  • 19-bit Gyroscope: ±15.6dps to ±2000dps full-scale range, 2.8 mdps/√Hz noise 
  • Host interface: 12.5 MHz I3C℠, 1 MHz I²C, 24 MHz SPI 
  • APEX Motion processing: gesture recognition, activity classification, wake-on-motion, and more 
  • Operating voltage: 1.71V to 3.6V 
    • Separate VDD and VDDIO 
  • Package: LGA-14, 2.5mm x 3.0mm x 0.91mm
