Senodia announced acquisition of Melexis’ auto-grade MEMS Gyroscope andits volume production

2012-08-28 12:00:00
Senodia Technologies (Shanghai) Co., Ltd.today announced it acquisition of Melexis’ auto-grade single-axis MEMSgyroscope, the gyro chip that has seen its wild application around the worldautomotive navigation (inertial aided navigation) and safety system (ESP,rollover protection), robot, large machinery for industrial and agricultural useand air and marine aviation among other fields.



RecentlySenodia launched SZ007A, the very first model of auto and also industrial gradesingle-axis MEMS gyroscope in China. The model has put to volume production andthe first batch after the transferring has been delivered to overseascustomers. 

Senodia Technologies (Shanghai) Co., Ltd.is the first in China to have successfully developed consumer-grade MEMSgyroscope and put it to volume production. It has announced single-axis,three-axis gyroscope of 100% IP and built them into consumer electronicsproducts.

Melexis is renowned automotive IC, standardindustrial and consumer product designer and manufacturer in Europe, owningyears of experience in sensor making. Its sensor product covers Hall devices,optical, infrared, pressure, acceleration and angular velocity sensor. Melexisis particularly pioneering and experienced in technology and process necessaryfor automotive sensors. 

Senodia believes that with the growth ofmarket demand for MEMS gyroscope demand for auto and industrial grade MEMSgyroscope is also expanding. In the field of automotive making, gyroscope is amust for ESP system and legislation has been made in North America and EU thatESP (electronic stabilization program) is compulsory. Black box for vehicle useand rollover protection system is also becoming popularized. Active safetysystem is playing an ever increasing role as drivers in China gives growingimportance to safe driving. In addition, GPS navigation, with its born defectsof precision and low refreshing rate, is facing the need of being updated. Infuture, inertial navigation aided GPS equipped with MEMS gyroscope will bepopularized as it can also detect altitude (if vehicle is on viaduct, road ortunnel) and even give navigation of over 30 minutes in place without GPS signalbesides improving precision and refreshing rate.  

Compared with its consumer gradecounterpart, automotive grade MEMS gyroscope differs in much higher anti-shocking,temperature drifting, offsetting and precision. So its cost is also higher thanconsumer ones. With proper adjustment of its parameters, automotive gradegyroscope can be fully applied to industrial use. Nowadays, MEMS gyroscope alsoplays a crucial role and gets large market share in industrial application,such as robot, mechanical arm for large scale manufacturing, drilling platformand medical devices among other things.  

The acquisition of Melexis auto-grade MEMSgyroscope is not just for simple expansion of senodia’s product line. Thecompany will continue to improve and complete it while serving auto-gradegyroscope market in China. Its recent target is to change and optimize thepackaging to lower cost and lift competitiveness of the product. As secondstep, secondary and deepened development will be made to the product to makeoptimized model possible and also improve process and design edges of Senodia. Thatwill give much benefit to the development of its existing consumer gradeproducts.
