CInvensense Closes Its Second Round of Funding of $11 Million

InvenSense (Santa Clara, Calif.), a leading provider of integrated motion sensing solutions for mobile and consumer applications, announced it has secured $11 million in Series B funding. The infusion will finance the company's high-volume production ramp for its popular integrated dual-axis gyroscope and will fund the completion of new product development for the handset market. QUALCOMM Ventures participated in the round, along with existing investors Artiman Ventures and Partech International, who fully participated in the round.

The new round of funding is the next step in the company's strategy to pursue new market opportunities for integrated motion sensing in consumer electronics, including gaming and mobile handsets. Using its initial round of funding, InvenSense was able to complete development, testing and production of hundreds of thousands of units for its flagship IDG product family of dual-axis gyroscope, and to secure multiple design wins with major consumer electronics OEMs, including Sanyo Electronics.

The dual-axis gyroscope offers precision motion sensing accuracy through the measurement of rotational movement. Current applications include image stabilization in digital still cameras (DSCs), camera phones and motion sensing for 3D computer mice.
