January 08, 2013 // By Julien Happich
The MPU-9250 from InvenSense is an integrated accelerometer/gyroscope/compass integrated into a 3x3x1mm package and drawing only 9.2mW of power for operation.

The 9-axis MotionTracking device is claimed to be 33% smaller than the nearest competitor. As well as a gyroscope, accelerometer and electronic compass, the device includes an onboard Digital Motion Processor, and comes factory tested and calibrated. The MPU-9250 is suitable for mobile devices, wearable sensors, fitness watches and remote health monitoring applications. The accelerometer consumes as little as 6.4mA of current in low-power mode. The compass has a resolution of 16-bits, and full scale measurement range of ±4800µT. The MPU-9250 is supported by the production-proven MotionApps software platform from InvenSense, with drivers that are fully compliant with Google's latest Android 4.2.1 Jelly Bean, Microsoft Windows 8 and Windows RT releases.
