Fairchild enters the market of combo sensors, and particularly 6-axis IMU, with its first consumer IMU bundled with Fairchild’s high-performance 9-axis sensor fusion algorithms, XKF3™, and on-chip AttitudeEngine™ motion processor.

Fairchild is presenting a product completely different than other devices on the market, from size, manufacturing process and cost point of view.

Fairchild proposes a 3.3×3.3x1mm device, a footprint increased by 18% when compared with the latest STMicroelectronics and Bosch 6-axis IMU.

The device presents one ASIC and one MEMS die stacked on 2 layers PCB and connected by wire bonding. The electrical connections in the MEMS structure are performed by TSV which allows a better utilization of the space and a larger gyroscope and accelerometer areas.

On the process side, new techniques has been introduced in the MEMS fabrication. The MEMS die is manufactured by bulk micromachining on three wafers bonded together by eutectic and direct bonding.

The FIS1100 targets wearable sensors for sports, fitness, and health; pedestrian navigation; autonomous robots; and virtual and augmented reality.

The report includes a detailed technology and cost comparison with ST’s new generation LSM6DS3 and with leading edge 6-Axis IMUs from Bosch Sensortec (BMI160) and InvenSense (MPU-6500).
