6DOF Digital IMU
Digital IMU Combo Board - 6 Degrees of Freedom using ITG3200 gyro and ADXL345 accelerometer.
This is a simple breakout for the ADXL345 accelerometer and the ITG-3200 gyro, giving full 6 degrees of freedom. The sensors communicate over I2C and one INT output pin from each sensor is broken out, see the schematics below.
This is a 3.3V device and therefore it needs a level converter to connect it to a 5V Arduino. Remember to use the TX lines to get bi-directional conversion.
Uses I2C bus:
- ITG-3200 address: 0xD0
- ADXL345 address: 0xA6
There is an example application on GitHub, see https://github.com/a1ronzo/6DOF-Digital .
For Arduino we can use the Wire library (TBC).
