Sensing Everything

invensense-logo InvenSense, Inc. (NYSE: INVN) is the world's leading provider of MEMS sensor platforms found in Mobile, Wearables, Smart Home, Industrial, and Automotive products. The company's patented InvenSense Fabrication Platform, MotionFusion technology, and location software and services addresses the emerging need of many mass-market consumer applications via improved performance, accuracy, and intuitive motion-, gesture- and sound-based interfaces. Component Distributors Inc. is an authorized distributor for InvenSense Inc. InvenSense is a chip maker that manufactures motion sensors (gyroscopes) used in smartphones to enable and calculate motion allowing for augmented reality games like Pokemon Go and its like.

Accurately tracking complex user motions requires the use of motion sensors such as gyroscopes, accelerometers, compasses, and pressure sensors, properly calibrating the data, and then fusing the sensor outputs into a single and accurate data stream for use by motion applications. InvenSense Inc. is the leading provider of intelligent sensor system on chip (SSoC) and Sound solutions for consumer electronic devices such as smartphones, tablets, wearables, gaming devices, optical image stabilization, and remote controls for Smart TVs. The company's sensor solutions are also being integrated into a number of industrial applications. The company's patented InvenSense Fabrication Platform and MotionApps software address the emerging needs of many mass-market consumer applications via improved performance, accuracy, and intuitive motion-, gesture- and sound-based interfaces.

InvenSense delivers turn-key Motion Interface solutions with fully integrated devices, robust algorithms, and in-use calibration firmware.

InvenSense technology is comprised of five core proprietary elements: the Nasiri-Fabrication process, advanced MEMS motion sensor designs, application specific mixed-signal circuitry for sensor signal processing, algorithms and calibration firmware that intelligently assimilates data from multiple sensors for use by end applications, and the MotionApps platform of drivers and application programming interfaces (APIs). InvenSense also recently introduced "ultrasonic" fingerprint sensors which can scan through glass, metal, moisture, and other contaminants.

InvenSense would be acquired by Japan based TDK Corp
