iPhone 5S MEMS Gyroscope STMicroelectronics 3x3mm
Discover how ST achieves 45% footprint reduction and decreases by 20% the production cost with their latest gyro extracted from the iPhone 5S.
STMicroelectronics 4x4mm MEMS gyro was integrated in the previous iPhones (iPhone 4, 4S & 5). For the new iPhone 5S, Apple has chosen the latest 3x3mm MEMS gyro from ST, thus achieving a 45% footprint reduction.
The new 3-Axis MEMS gyroscope is assembled with a true CSP process (Chip Scale Packaging) allowing a package efficiency of 75% (silicon area/package area). This packaging size reduction combined with dies shrinking allowed ST to reduce by 20% the production cost of their latest gyro.
