SUNNYVALE, California, March 20, 2013 – InvenSense, Inc. (NYSE: INVN), the leading provider of MotionTracking® devices, announced that its MPU-9150 is enabling Kopin’s Golden-i 3.8 Headset Computer, a hands-free mobile computing and wireless headset utilizing natural speech recognition and InvenSense MotionTracking technology. Golden-i provides ‘First Responders’ such as fire fighters, police and paramedics with critical real-time information required to perform their jobs safely and efficiently. Situational information is presented on Kopin’s QHD micro-display while the user intuitively navigates the information on a head-mounted device via voice and head gesture control. MPU-9150 is the world’s first nine-axis MotionTracking device with integrated 3-axis gyroscope, 3-axis accelerometer and 3-axis compass optimized for the low-power and high-performance requirements of the industrial wearable computing market.
“We are pleased that Kopin, a market leader in hands-free wearable computing technology, has selected our MPU-9150 for integration into the new Golden-i headset to drive innovation and enhance user experience,” said Ali Foughi, Vice President of Marketing and Business Development at InvenSense. “InvenSense is the recognized performance leader of motion sensing technology serving consumer electronics applications. Our 9-axis technology now empowers new products in a broad range of markets such as light industrial, wearable headsets, health and fitness, mobile phones, tablets, e-readers, and other emerging applications.”
“InvenSense was decisively selected as the motion tracking solution to provide Golden-i 3.8 the responsiveness and low-power consumption required for a “Hands-Free” computing headset,” said Jeffrey Jacobsen, Kopin’s Sr. Advisor to CEO and Golden-i Program Manager. “There is a lot more to the MPU-9150 than a few gyros and accelerometers. The 9-axis tracking enables Golden-i 3.8 to achieve world-class precision indoor location navigation, inertial stabilization for real-time streaming video and telephoto viewing when highly mobile. We believe the InvenSense MPU-9150 device is in a class all by itself.”
