Description
The LSM6DSM is a system-in-package featuring a 3D
digital accelerometer and a 3D digital gyroscope
performing at 0.65 mA in high-performance mode and
enabling always-on low-power features for an optimal
motion experience for the consumer.
The LSM6DSM supports main OS requirements,
offering real, virtual and batch sensors with 4 kbyte for
dynamic data batching.
ST’s family of MEMS sensor modules leverages the
robust and mature manufacturing processes already
used for the production of micromachined
accelerometers and gyroscopes.
The various sensing elements are manufactured using
specialized micromachining processes, while the IC
interfaces are developed using CMOS technology that
allows the design of a dedicated circuit which is
trimmed to better match the characteristics of the
sensing element.
The LSM6DSM has a full-scale acceleration range of
±2/±4/±8/±16 g and an angular rate range of
±125/±250/±500/±1000/±2000 dps.
The LSM6DSM fully supports EIS and OIS applications
as the module includes a dedicated configurable signal
processing path for OIS and auxiliary SPI configurable
for both the gyroscope and accelerometer.
High robustness to mechanical shock makes the
LSM6DSM the preferred choice of system designers for
the creation and manufacturing of reliable products.
The LSM6DSM is available in a plastic land grid array
(LGA) package.

LSM6DSM Overview
126
1 Overview
The LSM6DSM is a system-in-package featuring a high-performance 3-axis digital
accelerometer and 3-axis digital gyroscope.
The integrated power-efficient modes are able to reduce the power consumption down to
0.65 mA in high-performance mode, combining always-on low-power features with superior
sensing precision for an optimal motion experience for the consumer thanks to ultra-low
noise performance for both the gyroscope and accelerometer.
The LSM6DSM delivers best-in-class motion sensing that can detect orientation and
gestures in order to empower application developers and consumers with features and
capabilities that are more sophisticated than simply orienting their devices to portrait and
landscape mode.
The event-detection interrupts enable efficient and reliable motion tracking and contextual
awareness, implementing hardware recognition of free-fall events, 6D orientation, click and
double-click sensing, activity or inactivity, and wakeup events.
The LSM6DSM supports main OS requirements, offering real, virtual and batch mode
sensors. In addition, the LSM6DSM can efficiently run the sensor-related features specified
in Android, saving power and enabling faster reaction time. In particular, the LSM6DSM has
been designed to implement hardware features such as significant motion, tilt, pedometer
functions, timestamping and to support the data acquisition of an external magnetometer
with ironing correction (hard, soft).
The LSM6DSM offers hardware flexibility to connect the pins with different mode
connections to external sensors to expand functionalities such as adding a sensor hub,
auxiliary SPI, etc.
Up to 4 kbyte of FIFO with dynamic allocation of significant data (i.e. external sensors,
timestamp, etc.) allows overall power saving of the system.
The LSM6DSM fully supports OIS/EIS applications using both the gyroscope and
accelerometer sensor. The device can output OIS data through a dedicated auxiliary SPI
and includes a dedicated configurable signal processing path for OIS. OIS data can be sent
directly to the application processor for data processing. The gyroscope UI signal
processing path is completely independent from that of the OIS and is readable through
FIFO.
Like the entire portfolio of MEMS sensor modules, the LSM6DSM leverages the robust and
mature in-house manufacturing processes already used for the production of
micromachined accelerometers and gyroscopes. The various sensing elements are
manufactured using specialized micromachining processes, while the IC interfaces are
developed using CMOS technology that allows the design of a dedicated circuit which is
trimmed to better match the characteristics of the sensing element.
The LSM6DSM is available in a small plastic land grid array (LGA) package of
2.5 x 3.0 x 0.83 mm to address ultra-compact solutions.
Embedded low-power features LSM6DSM

2 Embedded low-power features
The LSM6DSM has been designed to be fully compliant with Android, featuring the following
on-chip functions:
4 kbyte data buffering
100% efficiency with flexible configurations and partitioning
Possibility to store timestamp
Event-detection interrupts (fully configurable):
Free-fall
– Wakeup
6D orientation
Click And double-click sensing
Activity / inactivity recognition
Specific IP blocks with negligible power consumption and high-performance:
Pedometer functions: step detector and step counters
Tilt (refer to Section 2.1: Tilt detection for additional information
Absolute Wrist Tilt (refer to Section 2.2: Absolute wrist tilt for additional
information)
Significant Motion Detection
Sensor hub
Up to 6 total sensors: 2 internal (accelerometer and gyroscope) and 4 external
sensors
Data rate synchronization with external trigger for reduced sensor access and enhanced
fusion
2.1 Tilt detection
The tilt function helps to detect activity change and has been implemented in hardware
using only the accelerometer to achieve both the targets of ultra-low power consumption
and robustness during the short duration of dynamic accelerations.
It is based on a trigger of an event each time the device's tilt changes. For a more
customized user experience, in the LSM6DSM the tilt function is configurable through:
a programmable average window
a programmable average threshold
The tilt function can be used with different scenarios, for example:
a) Triggers when phone is in a front pants pocket and the user goes from sitting to
standing or standing to sitting;
b) Doesn’t trigger when phone is in a front pants pocket and the user is walking,
running or going upstairs.
DocID028165 Rev 7 19/126
LSM6DSM Embedded low-power features

2.2 Absolute wrist tilt
The LSM6DSM implements in hardware the Absolute Wrist Tilt (AWT) function which allows
detecting when the angle between a selectable accelerometer semi-axis and the horizontal
plane becomes higher than a specific user-selectable value.
Configurable threshold and latency parameters are associated with the AWT function: the
threshold parameter defines the amplitude of the tilt angle; the latency parameter defines
the minimum duration of the AWT event to be recognized. The AWT interrupt signal is
generated if the tilt angle is higher than the threshold angle for a period of time equal to or
greater than the latency period.
The AWT function is based on the accelerometer sensor only and works at 26 Hz, so the
accelerometer ODR must be set at a value of 26 Hz or higher.
By default, the AWT algorithm is applied to the positive X-axis.
In order to enable the AWT function it is necessary to set to 1 both the FUNC_EN bit and the
WRIST_TILT_EN bit of CTRL10_C (19h).
The AWT interrupt signal can be driven to the INT2 interrupt pin by setting to 1 the
INT2_WRIST_TILT bit of the DRDY_PULSE_CFG (0Bh) register; it can also be checked by
reading the WRIST_TILT_IA bit of the FUNC_SRC2 (54h) register (it will also clear the
interrupt signal if latched).
WRIST_TILT_IA (55h) is the status register to be used to detect which axis has triggered the
AWT event (not applicable when using one axis side only).
The full description and an example is given in the dedicated application note.

4.6 Terminology
4.6.1 Sensitivity
Linear acceleration sensitivity can be determined, for example, by applying 1 g acceleration
to the device. Because the sensor can measure DC accelerations, this can be done easily
by pointing the selected axis towards the ground, noting the output value, rotating the
sensor 180 degrees (pointing towards the sky) and noting the output value again. By doing
so, ±1 g acceleration is applied to the sensor. Subtracting the larger output value from the
smaller one, and dividing the result by 2, leads to the actual sensitivity of the sensor. This
value changes very little over temperature and over time. The sensitivity tolerance describes
the range of sensitivities of a large number of sensors (see Table 3).
An angular rate gyroscope is a device that produces a positive-going digital output for
counterclockwise rotation around the axis considered. Sensitivity describes the gain of the
sensor and can be determined by applying a defined angular velocity to it. This value
changes very little over temperature and time (see Table 3).
4.6.2 Zero-g and zero-rate level
Linear acceleration zero-g level offset (TyOff) describes the deviation of an actual output
signal from the ideal output signal if no acceleration is present. A sensor in a steady state on
a horizontal surface will measure 0 g on both the X-axis and Y-axis, whereas the Z-axis will
measure 1 g. Ideally, the output is in the middle of the dynamic range of the sensor (content
of OUT registers 00h, data expressed as 2’s complement number). A deviation from the
ideal value in this case is called zero-g offset.
Offset is to some extent a result of stress to MEMS sensor and therefore the offset can
slightly change after mounting the sensor onto a printed circuit board or exposing it to
extensive mechanical stress. Offset changes little over temperature, see “Linear
acceleration zero-g level change vs. temperature” in Table 3. The zero-g level tolerance
(TyOff) describes the standard deviation of the range of zero-g levels of a group of sensors.
Zero-rate level describes the actual output signal if there is no angular rate present. The
zero-rate level of precise MEMS sensors is, to some extent, a result of stress to the sensor
and therefore the zero-rate level can slightly change after mounting the sensor onto a
printed circuit board or after exposing it to extensive mechanical stress. This value changes
very little over temperature and time (see Table 3).

5.1 Operating modes
In the LSM6DSM, the accelerometer and the gyroscope can be turned on/off independently
of each other and are allowed to have different ODRs and power modes.
The LSM6DSM has three operating modes available:
only accelerometer active and gyroscope in power-down
only gyroscope active and accelerometer in power-down
both accelerometer and gyroscope sensors active with independent ODR
The accelerometer is activated from power-down by writing ODR_XL[3:0] in CTRL1_XL
(10h) while the gyroscope is activated from power-down by writing ODR_G[3:0] in
CTRL2_G (11h). For combo-mode the ODRs are totally independent.
5.2 Gyroscope power modes
In the LSM6DSM, the gyroscope can be configured in four different operating modes:
power-down, low-power, normal mode and high-performance mode. The operating mode
selected depends on the value of the G_HM_MODE bit in CTRL7_G (16h). If G_HM_MODE
is set to '0', high-performance mode is valid for all ODRs (from 12.5 Hz up to 6.66 kHz).
To enable the low-power and normal mode, the G_HM_MODE bit has to be set to '1'. Low-
power mode is available for lower ODRs (12.5, 26, 52 Hz) while normal mode is available
for ODRs equal to 104 and 208 Hz.
5.3 Accelerometer power modes
In the LSM6DSM, the accelerometer can be configured in four different operating modes:
power-down, low-power, normal mode and high-performance mode. The operating mode
selected depends on the value of the XL_HM_MODE bit in CTRL6_C (15h). If
XL_HM_MODE is set to '0', high-performance mode is valid for all ODRs (from 12.5 Hz up
to 6.66 kHz).
To enable the low-power and normal mode, the XL_HM_MODE bit has to be set to '1'. Low-
power mode is available for lower ODRs (1.6, 12.5, 26, 52 Hz) while normal mode is
available for ODRs equal to 104 and 208 Hz.

5.5 FIFO
The presence of a FIFO allows consistent power saving for the system since the host
processor does not need continuously poll data from the sensor, but it can wake up only
when needed and burst the significant data out from the FIFO.
The LSM6DSM embeds 4 kbytes data FIFO to store the following data:
gyroscope
accelerometer
external sensors
step counter and timestamp
temperature
Writing data in the FIFO can be configured to be triggered by the:
accelerometer/gyroscope data-ready signal; in which case the ODR must be lower
than or equal to both the accelerometer and gyroscope ODRs;
sensor hub data-ready signal;
step detection signal.
In addition, each data can be stored at a decimated data rate compared to FIFO ODR and it
is configurable by the user, setting the FIFO_CTRL3 (08h) and FIFO_CTRL4 (09h)
registers. The available decimation factors are 2, 3, 4, 8, 16, 32.
The programmable FIFO threshold can be set in FIFO_CTRL1 (06h) and FIFO_CTRL2
(07h) using the FTH [10:0] bits.
To monitor the FIFO status, dedicated registers (FIFO_STATUS1 (3Ah), FIFO_STATUS2
(3Bh), FIFO_STATUS3 (3Ch), FIFO_STATUS4 (3Dh)) can be read to detect FIFO overrun
events, FIFO full status, FIFO empty status, FIFO threshold status and the number of
unread samples stored in the FIFO. To generate dedicated interrupts on the INT1 and INT2
pads of these status events, the configuration can be set in INT1_CTRL (0Dh) and
INT2_CTRL (0Eh).
The FIFO buffer can be configured according to five different modes:
Bypass mode
FIFO mode
Continuous mode
Continuous-to-FIFO mode
Bypass-to-continuous mode
Each mode is selected by the FIFO_MODE_[2:0] bits in the FIFO_CTRL5 (0Ah) register. To
guarantee the correct acquisition of data during the switching into and out of FIFO mode,
the first sample acquired must be discarded.
5.5.1 Bypass mode
In Bypass mode (FIFO_CTRL5 (0Ah) (FIFO_MODE_[2:0] = 000), the FIFO is not
operational and it remains empty.
Bypass mode is also used to reset the FIFO when in FIFO mode.
DocID028165 Rev 7 39/126
LSM6DSM Functionality
126
5.5.2 FIFO mode
In FIFO mode (FIFO_CTRL5 (0Ah) (FIFO_MODE_[2:0] = 001) data from the output
channels are stored in the FIFO until it is full.
To reset FIFO content, Bypass mode should be selected by writing FIFO_CTRL5 (0Ah)
(FIFO_MODE_[2:0]) to '000' After this reset command, it is possible to restart FIFO mode by
writing FIFO_CTRL5 (0Ah) (FIFO_MODE_[2:0]) to '001'.
FIFO buffer memorizes up to 4096 samples of 16 bits each but the depth of the FIFO can be
resized by setting the FTH [10:0] bits in FIFO_CTRL1 (06h) and FIFO_CTRL2 (07h). If the
STOP_ON_FTH bit in FIFO_CTRL4 (09h) is set to '1', FIFO depth is limited up to FTH [10:0]
bits in FIFO_CTRL1 (06h) and FIFO_CTRL2 (07h).
5.5.3 Continuous mode
Continuous mode (FIFO_CTRL5 (0Ah) (FIFO_MODE_[2:0] = 110) provides a continuous
FIFO update: as new data arrives, the older data is discarded.
A FIFO threshold flag FIFO_STATUS2 (3Bh)(FTH) is asserted when the number of unread
samples in FIFO is greater than or equal to FIFO_CTRL1 (06h) and FIFO_CTRL2
(07h)(FTH [10:0]).
It is possible to route FIFO_STATUS2 (3Bh) (FTH) to the INT1 pin by writing in register
INT1_CTRL (0Dh) (INT1_FTH) = ‘1’ or to the INT2 pin by writing in register INT2_CTRL
(0Eh) (INT2_FTH) = ‘1’.
A full-flag interrupt can be enabled, INT1_CTRL (0Dh) (INT_ FULL_FLAG) = '1', in order to
indicate FIFO saturation and eventually read its content all at once.
If an overrun occurs, at least one of the oldest samples in FIFO has been overwritten and
the OVER_RUN flag in FIFO_STATUS2 (3Bh) is asserted.
In order to empty the FIFO before it is full, it is also possible to pull from FIFO the number of
unread samples available in FIFO_STATUS1 (3Ah) and FIFO_STATUS2 (3Bh)
(DIFF_FIFO [10:0]).
5.5.4 Continuous-to-FIFO mode
In Continuous-to-FIFO mode (FIFO_CTRL5 (0Ah) (FIFO_MODE_[2:0] = 011), FIFO
behavior changes according to the trigger event detected in one of the following interrupt
registers FUNC_SRC1 (53h), TAP_SRC (1Ch), WAKE_UP_SRC (1Bh) and D6D_SRC
(1Dh).
When the selected trigger bit is equal to '1', FIFO operates in FIFO mode.
When the selected trigger bit is equal to '0', FIFO operates in Continuous mode.
5.5.5 Bypass-to-Continuous mode
In Bypass-to-Continuous mode (FIFO_CTRL5 (0Ah) (FIFO_MODE_[2:0] = '100'), data
measurement storage inside FIFO operates in Continuous mode when selected triggers in
one of the following interrupt registers FUNC_SRC1 (53h), TAP_SRC (1Ch),
WAKE_UP_SRC (1Bh) and D6D_SRC (1Dh) are equal to '1', otherwise FIFO content is
reset (Bypass mode).
Functionality LSM6DSM
40/126 DocID028165 Rev 7
5.5.6 FIFO reading procedure
The data stored in FIFO are accessible from dedicated registers (FIFO_DATA_OUT_L
(3Eh) and FIFO_DATA_OUT_H (3Fh)) and each FIFO sample is composed of 16 bits.
All FIFO status registers (FIFO_STATUS1 (3Ah), FIFO_STATUS2 (3Bh), FIFO_STATUS3
(3Ch), FIFO_STATUS4 (3Dh)) can be read at the start of a reading operation, minimizing
the intervention of the application processor.
Saving data in the FIFO buffer is organized in four FIFO data sets consisting of 6 bytes
each:
The 1st FIFO data set is reserved for gyroscope data;
The 2nd FIFO data set is reserved for accelerometer data;
The 3rd FIFO data set is reserved for the external sensor data stored in the registers from
SENSORHUB1_REG (2Eh) to SENSORHUB6_REG (33h);
The 4th FIFO data set can be alternately associated to the external sensor data stored in the
registers from SENSORHUB7_REG (34h) to SENSORHUB12_REG (39h), to the step
counter and timestamp info, or to the temperature sensor data.

6 Digital interfaces
6.1 I2C/SPI interface
The registers embedded inside the LSM6DSM may be accessed through both the I2C and
SPI serial interfaces. The latter may be SW configured to operate either in 3-wire or 4-wire
interface mode. The device is compatible with SPI modes 0 and 3.
The serial interfaces are mapped onto the same pins. To select/exploit the I2C interface, the
CS line must be tied high (i.e connected to Vdd_IO).
6.2 Master I2C
If the LSM6DSM is configured in Mode 2, a master I2C line is available. The master serial
interface is mapped in the following dedicated pins.

6.3 Auxiliary SPI
If LSM6DSM is configured in Mode 3, the auxiliary SPI is available. The auxiliary SPI
interface is mapped in the following dedicated pins.
6.4 I2C serial interface
The LSM6DSM I2C is a bus slave. The I2C is employed to write the data to the registers,
whose content can also be read back.
The relevant I2C terminology is provided in the table below.
There are two signals associated with the I2C bus: the serial clock line (SCL) and the Serial
DAta line (SDA). The latter is a bidirectional line used for sending and receiving the data
to/from the interface. Both the lines must be connected to Vdd_IO through external pull-up
resistors. When the bus is free, both the lines are high.
The I2C interface is implemeted with fast mode (400 kHz) I2C standards as well as with the
standard mode.
In order to disable the I2C block, (I2C_disable) = 1 must be written in CTRL4_C (13h).
6.4.1 I2C operation
The transaction on the bus is started through a START (ST) signal. A START condition is
defined as a HIGH to LOW transition on the data line while the SCL line is held HIGH. After
this has been transmitted by the master, the bus is considered busy. The next byte of data
transmitted after the start condition contains the address of the slave in the first 7 bits and
the eighth bit tells whether the master is receiving data from the slave or transmitting data to
the slave. When an address is sent, each device in the system compares the first seven bits
after a start condition with its address. If they match, the device considers itself addressed
by the master.

Term Description
Transmitter The device which sends data to the bus
Receiver The device which receives data from the bus
Master The device which initiates a transfer, generates clock signals and terminates a
transfer
Slave The device addressed by the master

LSM6DSM Digital interfaces
126
The Slave ADdress (SAD) associated to the LSM6DSM is 110101xb. The SDO/SA0 pin can
be used to modify the less significant bit of the device address. If the SDO/SA0 pin is
connected to the supply voltage, LSb is ‘1’ (address 1101011b); else if the SDO/SA0 pin is
connected to ground, the LSb value is ‘0’ (address 1101010b). This solution permits to
connect and address two different inertial modules to the same I2C bus.
Data transfer with acknowledge is mandatory. The transmitter must release the SDA line
during the acknowledge pulse. The receiver must then pull the data line LOW so that it
remains stable low during the HIGH period of the acknowledge clock pulse. A receiver
which has been addressed is obliged to generate an acknowledge after each byte of data
received.
The I2C embedded inside the LSM6DSM behaves like a slave device and the following
protocol must be adhered to. After the start condition (ST) a slave address is sent, once a
slave acknowledge (SAK) has been returned, an 8-bit sub-address (SUB) is transmitted.
The increment of the address is configured by the CTRL3_C (12h) (IF_INC).
The slave address is completed with a Read/Write bit. If the bit is ‘1’ (Read), a repeated
START (SR) condition must be issued after the two sub-address bytes; if the bit is ‘0’ (Write)
the master will transmit to the slave with direction unchanged. Table 14 explains how the
SAD+Read/Write bit pattern is composed, listing all the possible configurations.

Data are transmitted in byte format (DATA). Each data transfer contains 8 bits. The number
of bytes transferred per transfer is unlimited. Data is transferred with the Most Significant bit
(MSb) first. If a receiver can’t receive another complete byte of data until it has performed
some other function, it can hold the clock line, SCL LOW to force the transmitter into a wait
state. Data transfer only continues when the receiver is ready for another byte and releases
the data line. If a slave receiver doesn’t acknowledge the slave address (i.e. it is not able to
receive because it is performing some real-time function) the data line must be left HIGH by
the slave. The master can then abort the transfer. A LOW to HIGH transition on the SDA line
while the SCL line is HIGH is defined as a STOP condition. Each data transfer must be
terminated by the generation of a STOP (SP) condition.
In the presented communication format MAK is Master acknowledge and NMAK is No
Master Acknowledge.

LSM6DSM Digital interfaces

6.5 SPI bus interface
The LSM6DSM SPI is a bus slave. The SPI allows writing and reading the registers of the
device.
The serial interface communicates to the application using 4 wires: CS, SPC, SDI and SDO.
Figure 11. Read and write protocol (in mode 3)
CS is the serial port enable and it is controlled by the SPI master. It goes low at the start of
the transmission and goes back high at the end. SPC is the serial port clock and it is
controlled by the SPI master. It is stopped high when CS is high (no transmission). SDI and
SDO are, respectively, the serial port data input and output. Those lines are driven at the
falling edge of SPC and should be captured at the rising edge of SPC.
Both the read register and write register commands are completed in 16 clock pulses or in
multiples of 8 in case of multiple read/write bytes. Bit duration is the time between two falling
edges of SPC. The first bit (bit 0) starts at the first falling edge of SPC after the falling edge
of CS while the last bit (bit 15, bit 23, ...) starts at the last falling edge of SPC just before the
rising edge of CS.
bit 0: RW bit. When 0, the data DI(7:0) is written into the device. When 1, the data DO(7:0)
from the device is read. In latter case, the chip will drive SDO at the start of bit 8.
bit 1-7: address AD(6:0). This is the address field of the indexed register.
bit 8-15: data DI(7:0) (write mode). This is the data that is written into the device (MSb first).
bit 8-15: data DO(7:0) (read mode). This is the data that is read from the device (MSb first).
In multiple read/write commands further blocks of 8 clock periods will be added. When the
CTRL3_C (12h) (IF_INC) bit is ‘0’, the address used to read/write data remains the same for
every block. When the CTRL3_C (12h) (IF_INC) bit is ‘1’, the address used to read/write
data is increased at every block.
The function and the behavior of SDI and SDO remain unchanged.

LSM6DSM Auxiliary SPI configurations

8 Auxiliary SPI configurations
When the LSM6DSM is configured in Mode 3 and Mode 4, the auxiliary SPI can be
connected to a camera module for OIS/EIS support. In this interface, the SPI can write only
to the dedicated registers INT_OIS (6Fh), CTRL1_OIS (70h), CTRL2_OIS (71h),
CTRL3_OIS (72h).
8.1 Gyroscope filtering
The gyroscope filtering chain is illustrated in the following figure.
Figure 21. Gyroscope chain
Note: HP_EN_OIS is active to select HPF on the auxiliary SPI chain only if HPF is not already
used in the primary interface.
The auxiliary interface needs to be enabled in CTRL1_OIS (70h).
Gyroscope output values are in registers 22h to 27h with selected full scale (FS[1:0]_G_OIS
bit in CTRL1_OIS (70h)) and ODR at 6.66 kHz.
LPF1 configuration depends on the setting of the FTYPE_[1;0] _OIS bit in register
CTRL2_OIS (71h).

Auxiliary SPI configurations LSM6DSM
56/126 DocID028165 Rev 7
8.2 Accelerometer filtering
Accelerometer filtering is available only when Mode 4 is enabled.
Figure 22. Accelerometer chain (available only in Mode 4)
Accelerometer output values are in registers OUTX_L_XL (28h) through OUTZ_H_XL (2Dh)
and ODR at 6.66 kHz.
8.2.1 Accelerometer full scale set from primary interface
If the SPI/I2C primary interface is used, the full-scale setting has been configured by the
primary interface and CTRL3_OIS (72h) must be set to the same full-scale setting of the
primary interface.
8.2.2 Accelerometer full scale set from auxiliary SPI
If the configuration uses only the auxiliary SPI, the full scale can be set using the
FS[1:0]_XL_OIS bits in CTRL3_OIS (72h). The configuration of the low-pass filter depends
on the setting of the FILTER_XL_CONF_OIS[1:0] bits in register CTRL3_OIS (72h).
