This is a nice teardown but there are several things that are not clear, how do each of the competitors deal with stability, drift, and an integrated inertial solution? Most applications would benefit from the very best drift correction, which was a big problem in the recent past.

Most engineers want a complete inertial solution coming out of a chip of this class and other than price that might be the most important aspect of selection. I wish there was a chart with the major specs and capabilities listed for comparison.

Good questions...What about drift correction? Other major specs compared?

Is the author or a reader out there who can address these issues?

Thanks for the comments. 

We did not compare the specs of the components, just the technologies and manufacturing costs.

Datasheets of each references are available on the manufacturers websites: ST LSM9DS0, Bosch BMX055, InvenSense MPU-9250.
