Grove 6 Axis Accelerometer And Gyroscope

Grove - 6-Axis Accelerometer&Gyroscope is a cost-effective Grove interfaced and integrated sensor combination of 3-axis digital accelerometer and 3-axis digital gyroscope.

With a serious low power consumption digital chip LSM6DS3(datasheet) and power supply regulator inside, it features high sensitivity, green tech and low noise interference. It can be configured to different sensitivity levels of acceleration and different angular rate measurement range. Provided with detailed SDK, it can make the prototyping process quicker and easier.

This product can be used for different applications for tilt, motion, and tap sensings, such as robotics, IoT devices and consumer electronic devices.

Features

  • Grove interfaced and cost-effective.

  • Digital-output for 6 DOF motion data.

  • ±2/±4/±8/±16 g full scale leaner acceleration sensing range for various environment.

  • ±125, ±245, ±500, ±1000, ±2000 degree per seconds(dps) for angular rate measurement range make it versatile.

  • Detailed SDK for easier programming.

  • Regulated power supply for reliable data to be collected.

  • Programmed interrupts for different event.

  • 8 kB data buffering.
