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:)
