Want to play with a modern 2-axis gyro? Us too, but they all come surface-mount. Good thing SparkFun has these IXZ-500 dual-axis gyros mounted on a convenient breakout board!


Additional Information [Hide]

Modern gyroscopes and accelerometers are becoming more and more affordable, but also since they're getting smaller, they are harder to use. Good thing the geeks at SparkFun know their stuff, and took the popular dual axis IXZ-500 gyro and mounted it on a handy breakout board!

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 precise movement measurements). This dual output system allows you to use an analog-to-digital-converter (ADC) with two fewer bits, which is easier to find and afford!

This breakout board includes the IXZ-500 and a 2.8VDC LDO voltage regulator (with necessary filtering components). All necessary pins of the IXZ-500 are brought out to a convenient 9-pin 0.1" pitch header.

Features:

  • IXZ-500 Dual Axis Gyroscope
  • On-board 2.8VDC voltage regulator
  • All necessary filtering components
  • Pins broken out to a 0.1" pitch header
  • Integrated X- and Z-axis gyros on a single chip with in-plane mounting
  • Two separate outputs per axis for higher speed motions and lower-speed precise movements:
    • 500°/s full scale range (higher speed)
    • 110°/s full scale range (high precision)
  • Integrated amplifiers and low-pass filters
  • Auto Zero function for bias calibration
  • On-chip temperature sensor
