MEMS Motion Sensors

MEMS Module

System Solutions for Highest Performance

Fairchild takes a system-based approach to its MEMS motion solutions, making it easy for designers to achieve both high performance and fast time to market.

All products come bundled with Fairchild's high-performance 9-axis sensor fusion algorithms, XKF3™, and the company’s IMUs include an on-chip AttitudeEngine™ motion processor for longer battery life.

Standalone IMU and Turnkey Modules

The Fairchild FIS series of IMUs provides high performance with the lowest unit cost, while the FMT series of modules provides a complete motion subsystem with integrated IMU, magnetometer, and MCU for high performance with minimal engineering investment. Both are bundled with Fairchild’s proprietary XKF3 9-axis sensor fusion.
