Good evening, I'm at Master's program for MEMS so I would like to know more about this gyro/accelerometer combo chip so if some of you have some materials that could help me understand and learn new things I would be very grateful... send me those if you have on irma_hodzic2er@gmail.com Thank You :)

Pricing always depends on volume, of course, but ballpark pricing for consumer-grade inertial MEMS is under a dollar per axis.

Still we have iPhone 4 with gyro & acce. in the mobile market, where sizes are curicial. Considering the fact that many other companies are following steps of Apple there would be great market share for invensense. Besides the main lead factor is the price, acce. are easy to find and cheap, same for gyro. Do you know anything about their prices?

Invensense indeed deserves a hearty congratulations. When I ask people who they think just introduced the world's first gyo/accelerometer combo, they invariably guess giant STMicro--not tiny Invensense! Of course, by this time next year I predict STMicro and others will also have combo chips, but still Invensense deserve praise for being first.

Looks like this is a 3D IC structure. This technology has been evolving for a while, now is the time for commercial adaptation.

Congrats!!! What a breakthrough for InvenSense. These guys are pioneers in a rapidly emerging industry. I sure hope they go IPO relatively soon, I will be buying shares, I know that for sure:)

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
