Here we have a 10 Degrees of Freedom (10DOF) sensor. this compact little module includes a gyroscope, accelerometer, digital compass, and a barometric pressure / temperature sensor.
All of the individual sensors are accessible over I2C so you only need 4 connections to access all those sensors. SDA, SCL, Ground and VCC (you can use 3.3v or 5v) and each component can be accessed individually.
This sensor is made up of the following
- 6-axis accelerometer/gyroscope from InvenSense
- This sensor contains a MEMS accelerometer and a MEMS gyro in a single chip. It is very accurate, as it contains 16-bits analog to digital conversion hardware for each channel. Therefore it captures the x, y, and z channel at the same time.
- Barometric Pressure Sensor from Bosch
Please note that this sensor is as pictured and does not come with the headers pre-soldiered.
- 1 x GY-87 10DOF sensor
- 1 x 8 pin male header
- 1 x 8 pin right angle male header
