The first MEMS gyroscope of Bosch for Consumer Applications Employing a New Wafer Bonding Process 

More than 10 years after the release of its MEMS gyroscopes for automotive, Bosch Sensortec release its first 3-Axis gyroscope for consumer applications. 
In a market largely dominated by STMicroelectronics and InvenSense, Bosch Sensortec was the first to release a 3-axis MEMS gyroscope in a 3x3mm² package in order to gain market shares. Although the manufacturing process (Epi-poly surface micromachining) is similar to the one of automotive gyro, new processes for the capping and the wafer bonding has been adopted. Indeed, the classic "glass-frit" wafer bonding has been abandoned in favor of an eutectic bonding. 

This report provides a complete teardown of the MEMS gyro with:
