Description

The LPY530AL is a low-power two-axis 
micromachined gyroscope able to measure 
angular rate along pitch and yaw axes.

It provides excellent temperature stability and 
high resolution over extended operating 
temperature range (-40°C to +85°C).

The LPY530AL has a full scale of ±300 °/s and is 
capable of detecting rates with a -3 dB bandwidth 
up to 140 Hz. The gyroscope is the combination 
of one actuator and one accelerometer integrated 
in a single micromachined structure. 

It includes a sensing element composed by single 
driving mass, kept in continuos oscillating 
movement and able to react when an angular rate 
is applied based on the Coriolis principle.

A CMOS IC provides the measured angular rate 
to the external world through an analog output 
voltage, allowing high level of integration and 
production trimming to better match sensing 
element characteristics.

ST gyroscope family leverages on robust and 
mature manufacturing process already used for 
the production of micromachined accelerometers.

ST is already in the field with several hundreds 
million sensors with excellent acceptance from 
the market in terms of quality, reliability and 
performance.

LPY530AL is provided in plastic land grid array 
(LGA)

 

package.

Several years ago ST pioneered successfully the 
usage of this package for accelerometers. Today 
ST has the widest manufacturing capability and 
strongest expertise in the world for production of 
sensor in plastic LGA package.
