InvenSense, Inc. (NYSE:INVN) , the leading provider of intelligent sensor solutions, announced that its recently launched, third-generation 6-axis motion sensing solution is shipping into flagship customer platforms worldwide, and that its 6-axis product line, first in the industry and shipping since 2010, has now surpassed the milestone of having shipped over four hundred million units into smartphones, tablets, gaming consoles and controllers, smartTVs, and a myriad of wearables and health and fitness devices.

“We are very pleased to announce this milestone, as it speaks to broad acceptance of our highly-integrated products in a competitive industry. It also validates the broad demand we addressed with the industry’s first products that go beyond the discrete 3-axis accelerometer and 3-axis gyroscope solutions available when InvenSense first announced its integrated roadmap,” said Behrooz Abdi, president and CEO. “Over the past year, we have made strong share gains across our customer base, and accelerated our investment in enabling applications that are tightly coupled to our 6-axis motion solutions, such as improved navigation, context awareness, activity recognition, and many of the ‘always on’ experiences that users demand. Our continued design win success is the result of our proven performance, quality, reliability, and innovative system-on-a-chip capabilities. We are excited by our recent success with new and existing customers, providing continued opportunities for growth. We continue to believe that our products and unique platform capabilities, such as embedded application processing, position us well to leverage rising global sensor adoption rates and enables new applications for our products, including wearables and other mass market consumer devices. Broadening demand for proven applications, such as optical image stabilization (OIS) where the InvenSense solution holds a significant performance advantage over other offerings in the marketplace, further validates our continuing investment in sensor and application integration on our unique platform.”

InvenSense’s success also continues to validate the fabless manufacturing model for MEMS, which has proven to be the model of choice for almost every leading non-MEMS semiconductor manufacturer in the world. Furthermore, InvenSense’s disruptive Fabrication Platform, which allows the integration of multiple MEMS wafers with standard CMOS wafers using a patented wafer-to-wafer bonding process, has enabled many first-to-market multi-sensor MEMS devices, such as the first 6-axis product, and, as announced earlier this year, the first 7-axis, pressure sensor-integrated multi-sensor MEMS devices.
