mCube Ships Third-Generation Accelerometers in Volume

Highlights Company’s Continued Technology Leadership in MEMS Motion Sensors for the Smart Phone and Tablet Markets

SAN JOSE, CA – SEPTEMBER 25, 2014 – mCube, provider of the world’s smallest MEMS motion sensors, today announced the general availability of its third-generation MC3413 and MC3433 accelerometer sensors. With more than 70 million accelerometers shipped to date, mCube has established a technology leadership position in the MEMS motion sensor market. These new accelerometers bring to market the smaller size, lower cost and better performance that customers require for next generation tablets and smart phones.

“mCube is committed to delivering the motion sensors our customers need to succeed in their global markets and this announcement reaffirms that goal,” said Ben Lee, president and CEO, mCube, Inc. “With each new generation of products, we further leverage our proven monolithic single-chip technology platform and our product design expertise to develop smaller and more efficient motion sensors that deliver the competitive advantages our customers need to win.”

About the MC3413 and MC3433 Accelerometers

Featuring an industry-leading small die size, the mCube MC3413 and MC3433 accelerometers are shipping today in a 2x2x1mm packaging and can be incorporated into even smaller packages for space-constrained designs. In addition, this next generation family features an innovative use of pin connectivity, allowing the MC3413 and MC3433 devices to use a single external passive component, compared to competitive offerings requiring 2 or more. This reduction in external components enables mCube customers to benefit from lower costs and smaller form factors.

The MC3413 and MC3433 feature mCube’s innovative monolithic single-chip motion sensor technology, enabling extremely cost-effective, high-performance motion sensors. With the mCube approach, the MEMS sensors are fabricated directly on top of IC electronics in a standard CMOS fabrication facility. Advantages of this monolithic approach include smaller size, higher performance, lower cost, and the ability to integrate multiple sensors onto a single-chip.

With both devices immediately available, the MC3413 is targeted towards the high-resolution marketplace for applications requiring up to 14-bit resolution, while the MC3433 serves applications requiring up to 8-bit resolution.
