Description: Replacement: None. There is no direct replacement for this gryo, but check out the others in our gyro category. This page is for reference only.

The IXZ-500 is a very small gyroscope, designed to sense angular velocity on the x and z axes (pitch/yaw).****It uses InvenSense’s patented Nasiri-Fabrication platform, which integrates MEMS wafers with companion CMOS electronics through wafer-level bonding to produce a functionally complete, low-cost motion sensor. All required electronics are integrated onto a single chip with the sensor.

The gyro features a primary output with a ±500°/sec full scale range, for measuring higher speed motions, and has a secondary output with a ±110°/sec full-scale range, for sensing more precise movements. These dual outputs allow the system designer to use an analog-to-digital-converter (ADC) with two fewer bits, saving overall system cost.

The IXZ-500 gyro includes the integrated electronics necessary for application-ready functionality.It incorporates X- and Z-axis low-pass filters and an EEPROM for on-chip factory calibration of the sensor. Factory trimmed scale factors eliminate the need for external active components and end-user calibration. A built-in Proportional-To-Absolute-Temperature (PTAT) sensor provides temperature compensation information. The product is RoHS and Green Compliant.


  • 3V single supply operation
