mCube Ships 100-Millionth Accelerometer
Monolithic MEMS Technology Enables Company’s Rapid Growth
SAN JOSE, CA – MAY 5, 2015 – mCube, provider of the world’s smallest MEMS motion sensors, today announced that mCube has surpassed 100 million units in cumulative shipments of its industry leading accelerometer products. These advanced motion sensors utilize mCube’s monolithic single-chip MEMS design approach that enables the next generation of sensors – very small, single-chip MEMS+ASIC devices that are cost effective, consume low power, and feature very high performance. As the first company to integrate a MEMS sensor with the ASIC onto a single die using standard CMOS process, mCube is delivering this next generation of motion sensors by making them simple to manufacture and easy to design into a broad range of applications. mCube accelerometers have been widely adopted in a range of smartphone and tablet designs and are featured on the approved vendor lists of leading handset chipset partners. mCube will continue to expand its global reach with the proliferation of motion sensors in the latest wearables and the rapidly expanding Internet of Things (IoT) market.
100-Millionth Unit Shipment
The 100-Millionth unit was recorded in an April shipment to mCube customer, Coolpad. According to IDC, Coolpad is a top-five leading smartphone brand in China by 2014 market share. On April 28, 2015, mCube presented to Coolpad a commemorative trophy for this milestone. Coolpad senior management congratulated the mCube team for achieving this significant milestone and expressed appreciation for mCube’s support.
Motion Sensing Market
By 2020, analysts predict more than 50 billion devices will be connected to the Internet and a large percentage of those devices will be in motion. According to Yole Développement (Yole), the market research and strategy consulting company, the market for inertial sensors will exceed $4.7B in 2015 and grow to over 9-billion units per year by 2018. “Opportunities for mCube’s monolithic single-chip MEMS technology in smartphones and tablets continue to be strong,” said Ben Lee, president and CEO, mCube, Inc. “We are pleased with the number of new customer products featuring mCube motion sensors. We are even more excited about all the upcoming opportunities in the Internet of Moving Thing (IoMT) as motion sensors are broadly adopted in the latest wearables, health care, smart home, and smart agriculture systems. mCube is positioned for continued growth as we pursue our vision to put a motion sensor on every moving object.”
