Invensense Targets OIS Systems

Electronic Design: Addressing lower-cost optical image stabilization (OIS) as a major goal, InvenSense has unveiled the first digital dual-axis pitch and roll (X and Y) gyroscope for camera phones and digital still cameras. The original announcement from over a month is here. The IDG-2000 family offers the smallest such devices on the market, housed in a 4- by 4- by 0.9-mm quad flat no-lead (QFN) package and integrating 16b ADcs. The IDG-2000 measures hand jitter across a wide frequency range of 0.1 Hz to 20 Hz with noise 0.033°/s-rms.

The 20Hz upper range looks too low to me, especially for zoom equipped cameras. However, it should work fine for wide angle low light situations.
