Description

 

This modules has a InvenSense MPU-6050 sensor, voltage regulator and additional components. The MPU-6050 contains a MEMS accelerometer and a MEMS gyro in a single chip. It is very accurate, since it contains 16-bits analog to digital conversion hardware for each channel. Therefor it captures the x, y, and z channel at the same time. This sensor board has a voltage regulator. So it can be used with 3.3V and with 5V.

This module has an I2C interface, making it very easy to interface to any Arduino/AVR/PIC or nearly any other Microcontroller board. Most of them have an I2C interface!

There are many resources on the internet describing how to use it with Arduino, AVR, PIC and other embedded platforms.

Using this sensor with a Controller board

We stock a wide range of embedded Single Board Computers (Arduino, PIC Microchip SBC...) that can be used together with this sensor. All our boards have an I2C interface, which is required by this board. Seeing that this sensors works with a wide operating voltage, it is compatible with any of our 3.3V and 5V boards. See the Boards section of our menu at the top of this page (or use search box) for our full range of SBC Boards. Following are some lists (created by search terms) of compatible accessories.
