Sensor fusion is essential to harness the gyroscopes that will be included in nearly every smartphone in the future, starting with Apple's new iPhone 4. Freescale claims that using a "smart MEMS" chip, with an integrated microcontroller with built-in fusion algorithms in firmware, will enable future devices to be cost reduced. But you would think that using a cheaper dumb MEMS chip would enable an even lower price point for devices. As a working engineer, which side of this argument do you favor?
