Description: The SparkFun 9DOF MPU-9150 is the world’s first 9-axis MotionTracking MEMS device designed for the low power, low cost, and high performance requirements of consumer electronics equipment including smartphones, tablets and wearable sensors. And guess what? You get to play with it.
This breakout board makes it easy to prototype with the InvenSense MPU-9150 by breaking out all the pins you need to standard 0.1" spaced headers. The board also provides I2C pullup resistors and a solder jumper to switch the I2C address of the device.
The MPU-9150 is a System in Package (SiP) that combines two chips: the MPU-6050, which contains a 3-axis gyroscope, 3-axis accelerometer, and an onboard Digital Motion Processor™ (DMP™) capable of processing complex MotionFusion algorithms; and the AK8975, a 3-axis digital compass. The part’s integrated 6-axis MotionFusion algorithms access all internal sensors to gather a full set of sensor data.

It’s easy to use. Everything worked after only a few minutes of effort. I have gotten onto another extensive project, so have not applied it to anything yet, but am looking forward to getting back to it. There are certainly some interesting possibilities here.
I own a bunch of these guys and use them for everything from digital protractors to experimental UAV control.
The breakout is good with decent mounting and the obvious breadboard friendly pins. The ability to change the I2C address is nice too.
This IC isn’t quite deprecated, but it will be soon. Just beware if working on an IMU system that the new variant of this chip is able to actually muster the onboard fusion which may negate your need for an MCU.
