InvenSense® Motion Interface Solutions for Windows 8 and Windows RT Shipping in High-Volume to Leading Tablet and Ultrabook Manufacturers
SUNNYVALE, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
Inc. (NYSE: INVN), the leading provider of MotionTracking™
devices for consumer electronics, announced that its HID (Human
Interface Device) and User-Mode Driver (UMD) motion sensing solutions
for Windows 8 and Windows RT are in high-volume production with multiple
Tier-1 Ultrabook™ and tablet manufacturers. In collaboration with
Microsoft, InvenSense ported its MotionApps™ software to the new Windows
8 OS and its solutions are now WHCK-certified for both Intel and ARM (News - Alert)
architectures. This allows for rapid integration of InvenSense
MotionTracking devices along with robust and field-proven MotionApps
software, providing OEMs with a one-stop sensor subsystem solution.
InvenSense provides Windows 8 Ultrabook and tablet manufacturers the
option of implementing either a sensor hub solution inside a
microcontroller using the HID protocol, or the lower-cost option of a
hub-less UMD solution. Using InvenSense intelligent MotionTracking
devices, both solutions meet Microsoft's (News - Alert) requirements for low-power
screen orientation and connected standby mode. The UMD solutio manages
Windows 8 protocols for low-power operation inside the intelligent
MotionTracking hardware, without the need for a costly, discrete
microcontroller sensor hub. Alternatively, the sensor hub solution
supports both HID-over-USB and HID-over-I2C protocols running
on popular microcontroller architectures.
"We share the industry's excitement for Windows 8," said Ali Foughi,
Vice President of Marketing and Business Development at InvenSense.
"Windows 8 is a perfect platform for our MotionApps software, which has
already shipped in over 50 million smartphones and tablets worldwide.
InvenSense's HID and UMD solution software for Windows 8 and Windows RT,
paired with our leading MotionTracking devices, provides manufacturers
with the flexibility to implement sensor subsystems that meet
performance and cost targets for consumers."
InvenSense MotionTracking devices and MotionApps software for Windows 8
and Windows RT are available today. For more information, please contact email@example.com
