System Plus Consulting is proud to publish the reverse costing report of the latest 3-axis analog MEMS Gyroscope supplied by STMicroelectronics.

With an LGA package measuring 3.5x3x1mm, the L3G3250A features the smallest footprint of all the 3axis gyroscopes and succeed to the VTI CMR3000.
Compared to the main gyros for consumer applications in production today (4x4mm), the L3G3250A achieves a footprint reduction of nearly 35% and a volume reduction ranging from 27% to 40%.

The L3G3250A is suitable for various applications including Gaming and virtual reality input devices, motion control with MMI (man-machine interface),
GPS navigation systems, appliances and robotics.
