6-Axis MotionTracking® Device for Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) applications

Note: The ICM-20690 is marked as EOL and is not recommended for new designs.

The ICM-20690 is a 6-axis MotionTracking device with a main Interface for UI and an Auxiliary interface configurable as SPI slave for Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) applications or as I²C Master to support other sensors such as compass or pressure sensor. It is available in a 2.5 × 3 × 0.91mm 14-pin LGA package.

  • Concurrent UI+OIS with I²C/SPI Slave to host & Slave SPI at 20Mhz for OIS (low phase delay)
  • Independent FSR selection for each interface
  • OIS FSR range 32 to 250 for highest resolution
  • Only solution with 4-axis OIS support concurrently
  • Lowest gyro noise at 4 mdps
  • Only 6-axis chip with 1% sensitivity tolerance that supports calibration-less production
  • Best offset vs temperature performance
  • EIS FSYNC support
  • The ICM-20690 features a 1K-byte FIFO that can lower the traffic on the serial bus interface, and reduce power consumption by allowing the system processor to burst read sensor data and then go into a low-power mode.

Other industry-leading features include on-chip 16-bit ADCs, programmable digital filters, an embedded temperature sensor, and programmable interrupts. The device features I²C and SPI serial interfaces, a VDD operating range of 1.71 to 3.45V, and a separate digital IO supply, VDDIO from 1.71V to 3.45V.
