BARCELONA, Spain -- February 25, 2014

InvenSense, Inc. (NYSE:INVN), the leading provider of MotionTracking^™ system
on chip (SoC) and Sound ^ devices, announces the InvenSense ICS-40161 top port
MEMS microphone targeted towards mobile electronic devices such as
smartphones, tablets, remote controls, smart TVs, Bluetooth headsets, and
digital still/video cameras. The new InvenSense ICS-40161 top port microphone
provides the same performance as the previously announced ICS-40160 bottom
port microphone. The availability of both a top and bottom port microphone
provides customers maximum flexibility in mechanical and acoustical design.

Contextual awareness is driving the need for low-power ‘AlwaysOn’ sensors. The
ICS-40161 microphone meets this challenge with its ‘AlwaysOn’ mode, while
offering 65 dB SNR, high Acoustic Overload Point (AOP), and excellent matching
in high performance mode.

“InvenSense has achieved another industry first, delivering a top port
microphone matching the performance of its bottom port counterpart,” said Ali
Foughi, Vice President of Marketing and Business Development at InvenSense.
“InvenSense continues to lead the industry in bringing innovative human-like
interface, including both motion and audio, to consumer electronics.”

Sampling of the InvenSense ICS-40161 will commence in Q2 of 2014. InvenSense
is exhibiting in booth# D61in Hall 7 at the 2014 Mobile World Congress
taking place in Barcelona, Spain from February 24 - 27, 2014. To schedule
