2-axis gyroscope


STMicroelectronics introduces a new 2-axis gyroscope specifically optimized for optical image stabilization in smartphones and digital still cameras.

Benefiting from compact dimensions of just 2.3 x 2.3 x 0.7 mm, the L2G2IS can be easily integrated into the next generation of stabilized camera modules, where the dimensions of the components are critical.

At a size 50% smaller than the previous generation by area and 60% smaller by volume, the L2G2IS still provides the high performance demanded by the applications and consumers.

Key technical features of the new device include:

  • ±100dps / ±200dps full-scale range
  • 3- and 4-wire SPI interface
  • integrated low- and high-pass filters with selectable bandwidth

The L2G2IS operates with a supply voltage range of 1.7V to 3.6V.
