TDK announces worldwide availability of IMU platform for automotive

IAM-20680HP automotive sensor platform solution includes IAM-20680HP MEMS inertial measurement unit (IMU) sensors and developer kit, all currently available through worldwide distributors

TDK Corporation announces worldwide availability of the InvenSense IAM-20680HP high-performance automotive monolithic 6-axis MotionTracking sensor platform for non-safety relevant automotive applications, which includes the IAM-20680HP IMU MEMS sensor and the DK-20680HP developer kit.

InvenSense’s IAM-20680HP combines a 3-axis gyroscope and a 3-axis accelerometer in a thin 3 x 3 x 0.75mm (16-pin LGA) package and is automotive qualified based on AEC-Q100 Grade 2. The IAM-20680HP shares pin-to-pin and register compatibility with the full automotive non-safety product family from InvenSense: IAM-20680 (6-axis IMU), IAM-20380 (3-axis gyroscope) and IAM-20381 (3-axis accelerometer). It also features an extended FIFO up to 4096-bytes that can lower the traffic on the serial bus interface and reduce power consumption by allowing the system processor to burst read sensor data and then go into low-power mode. In addition, the IAM-20680HP provides industry-leading sensitivity tolerance and temperature stability in combination with proven high robustness by supporting 10,000g shock reliability.

The IAM-20680HP platform is designed to enhance positioning systems accuracy, to enable advanced telematic features and to stabilize vision system by delivering precise and reliable inertial data up to 105°C. It also provides best-in-class low noise performance, on-chip 16-bit ADCs, a 3-axis gyroscope with user-programmable full-scale range of ±250 dps to ±2000 dps, and a 3-axis accelerometer with user-programmable full-scale range of ±2g to ±16g. Other industry-leading features include programmable digital filters, an embedded temperature sensor, programmable interrupts, and factory-calibration of both sensors, ultimately reducing production-line calibration requirements. The device features I2C and SPI serial interfaces and voltage operating range of 1.71V to 3.6V.

Sensor platform solution:


  • IAM-20680HP, with its 6-axis integration, enables manufacturers to eliminate the costly and complex selection, qualification, and system level integration of discrete devices, guaranteeing optimal motion performance.
  • IAM-20680HP shares pin-to-pin and register compatibility with the full automotive non-safety product family: IAM-20680, IAM-20380 and IAM-20381.


  • Features a single board “Out of the Box” experience, comprehensive software tools to expedite evaluation and development, and on-board embedded developer tools to help with code development.

The InvenSense IAM-20680HP and DK-20680HP developer kit are available from multiple distributors and are part of a fully compatible, multi-axis, multi-grade IMU portfolio of automotive products from TDK.
