SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- December 10, 2012

InvenSense, 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 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
requirements for low-power screen orientation and connected standby mode. The
UMD solution 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-I^2C 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

InvenSense MotionTracking devices and MotionApps software for Windows 8 and
Windows RT are available today. For more information, please contact or your local InvenSense sales representative.
