SparkFun Triple Axis Accelerometer and Gyro Breakout - MPU-6050
Selectable Solder Jumpers on CLK, FSYNC and AD0
Tri-Axis angular rate sensor (gyro) with a sensitivity up to 131 LSBs/dps
Tri-Axis accelerometer with a programmable full scale range of ±2g, ±4g, ±8g and ±16g
Embedded algorithms for run-time bias and compass calibration. No user intervention required
The MPU-6050 is a serious little piece of motion processing tech! By combining a MEMS 3-axis gyroscope and a 3-axis accelerometer on the same silicon die together with an onboard Digital Motion Processor™ (DMP™) capable of processing complex 9-axis MotionFusion algorithms, the MPU-6050 does away with the cross-axis alignment problems that can creep up on discrete parts.
SparkFun's breakout board for the MPU-6050 makes this tiny QFN package easy to work into your project. Every pin you need to get up and running is broken out to 0.1" headers, including the auxiliary master I2C bus which allows the MPU-6050 to access external magnetometers and other sensors.
