MEMS gyroscopes support shake-free image capture

By moving the lens in real time to compensate for physical movement of the camera, optical image stabilization can significantly improve the sharpness of the image, especially when taking photographs in low light, when hand jitter during the longer exposure time would blur images.
The 2-axis (L2G3IS) and 3-axis (L3G3IS) gyroscopes operate with a resonant frequency of the sensing mass at around 20kHz. The chips have a ±65 dps / ±130 dps full-scale range, an SPI digital interface, an embedded temperature sensor, and integrated low- and high-pass filters with selectable bandwidth. The devices operate from 2.4 to 3.6V and are housed in an LGA-16 package measuring 3×3.5x1mm.
