Gyro Breakout Board - IXZ500 Dual 500 (SparkFun Electronics)
Gyro Breakout Board - IXZ500 Dual 500°/s Description: Replacement: None. It's time for this product to step aside and make room in the catalog for even more cool stuff. This page is for reference only. This is a breakout board for the dual axis IXZ-500 gyro. The IXZ-500 is a very small gyroscope, designed to sense angular velocity on the x and z axes (pitch/yaw).****The gyro features a primary output with a ±500°/s full scale range, for measuring higher speed motions, and has a secondary output with a ±110°/s full-scale range, for sensing more precise movements. These dual outputs allow the system designer to use an analog-to-digital-converter (ADC) with two fewer bits, saving overall system cost. This breakout board includes the IXZ-500 and all components as shown - a 2.8VDC LDO voltage regulator, and filtering components. All necessary pins of the IXZ-500 are brought out to a 9-pin 0.1" pitch header. Not sure which gyro is right for you? Our Accelerometer and Gyro Buying Guide might help!
