System Plus Consulting is proud to publish the reverse costing report on the MPU-9150 MEMS from InvenSense.

The MPU-9150 is a motion tracking MEMS that combines a 3D accelerometer, a 3D gyroscope from Invensense and a 3D digital compass from AKM in the same package, a 4x4x1mm LGA package.

The MPU-9150 is targeted for mobile phones, tablets, gaming devices, Portable Navigation Devices and remote controllers.

This report provides complete teardown of the inertial MEMS with:

- Detailed photos
