Description :

The ICM-20648 a 6-axis MotionTracking device that is ideally
suited for Smartphones, Tablets, Wearable Sensors, and IoT
3-axis gyroscope, 3-axis accelerometer, 3-axis compass,
and a Digital Motion Processor™ (DMPTM) in a
3x3x0.9mm (24-pin QFN) package
DMP offloads computation of motion processing
algorithms from the host processor, improving system
power performance
Software drivers are fully compliant with Google’s latest
Android release
Enhanced FSYNC functionality to improve timing for
applications like EIS
ICM-20648 supports an auxiliary I2
C interface to external
sensors, on-chip 16-bit ADCs, programmable digital filters, an
embedded temperature sensor, and programmable
interrupts. The device features an operating voltage range
down to 1.71V. Communication ports include I
2 C and high speed SPI at 7MHz.
