SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- January 7, 2013

InvenSense, Inc. (NYSE: INVN), the leading provider of MotionTracking^™
devices, introduces a second generation, category defining, 9-axis
MotionTracking device. The MPU-9250, in a 3x3x1mm QFN package, is 33% smaller
than the nearest competitor. With only 9.2mW, it is the lowest power 9-axis
motion sensing device on the market, and offers the best available gyroscope
noise and compass full scale range. This fully-integrated 9-axis device
includes a gyroscope, accelerometer and electronic compass, with an onboard
Digital Motion Processor™, and comes factory tested and calibrated. The
MPU-9250 is ideal for mobile devices, wearable sensors, fitness watches and
remote health monitoring applications that require small form factor,
low-power consumption and performance accuracy.

“InvenSense is an industry leader with best-in-class, world’s first
MotionTracking solutions,” said Behrooz Abdi, President and CEO of InvenSense.
“With the MPU-9250, we are moving the industry forward by delivering
breakthroughs in 9-axis package size, power and performance. Moreover,
InvenSense is continuing to raise the bar for Motion Interface innovations.”

Ali Foughi, Vice President of Marketing and Business Development at InvenSense
noted, “InvenSense is enabling rapid adoption of leading MotionTracking
solutions for mainstream consumer applications as well as emerging markets.
Our MPU-9250 is the smallest and most cost-effective 9-axis device serving the
highly-elastic combo sensor market, which is estimated by Yole Développement
to grow to $1.5 billion USD by 2017. Customers are showing increasing interest
in our 9-axis solutions which are targeted for smartphones, tablets, wearable
sensors for sport and activity monitoring, remote health monitoring and a
whole host of new and exciting applications.”

The MPU-9250 has other compelling advantages beyond size, power and noise
performance breakthroughs. The accelerometer consumes as little as 6.4μA of
current in low-power mode. The compass has a resolution of 16-bits, and full
scale measurement range of ±4800µT. The MPU-9250 is supported by the
production-proven MotionApps^TM software platform from InvenSense. The
MPU-9250 software drivers are fully compliant with Google’s latest Android
4.2.1 Jelly Bean, Microsoft Windows 8 and Windows RT releases, and support new
low-power DMP capabilities that offload the host processor to reduce power
consumption and simplify application development. The MPU-9250 is sampling now
to selected customers with mass production slated for Q2 2013. For additional

InvenSense will be exhibiting at CES in booth #30161, located in Hall S3.

About Motion Interface Technology

Motion Interface is used to define the integration of multiple motion sensor
functions i.e., accelerometer, gyroscopes, electronic compasses, pressure
sensors, etc. into a single device. Motion Interface  provides the ability for
users to communicate directly with their devices through use of natural motion
which is interpreted into a desire command. InvenSense is the first company to
deliver integrated MotionProcessing solutions to market which are being
integrated into wearable sensor, remote health monitoring, industrial,
smartphone, tablet and other products.
