The SparkFun Qwiic ISM330DHCX Six Degrees of Freedom IMU is a standard-sized, 1in. by 1in. breakout featuring STMicroelectronics' ISM330DHCX; a high-performance 3D digital accelerometer and 3D digital gyroscope tailored for Industry 4.0. Applications such as platform, optical image, lens stabilization, robotics and industrial automation, navigations systems, and vibration monitoring and compensation are made easy with this small board. The Qwiic 6DoF IMU communicates over I2C by default utilizing our handy Qwiic Connect System so no soldering is required to connect it to the rest of your boards. However, we still routed the I2C signals out to a set of 0.1”-spaced pins for users who prefer a soldered connection.
This 6DoF IMU Breakout has a full-scale acceleration range of ±2/±4/±8/±16g and a wide angular rate range of ±125/±250/±500/±1000/±2000/±4000 dps that enable its usage in a broad range of applications. An unmatched set of embedded features (Machine Learning Core, programmable FSM, FIFO, sensor hub, event decoding and interrupts) are enablers for implementing smart and complex sensor nodes which deliver high performance at very low power.
The SparkFun Qwiic connect system is an ecosystem of I2C sensors, actuators, shields and cables that make prototyping faster and less prone to error. All Qwiic-enabled boards use a common 1mm pitch, 4-pin JST connector. This reduces the amount of required PCB space, and polarized connections mean you can’t hook it up wrong.
If a board needs code or communicates somehow, you're going to need to know how to program or interface with it. The programming skill is all about communication and code.
Skill Level: Rookie - You will need a better fundamental understand of what code is, and how it works. You will be using beginner-level software and development tools like Arduino. You will be dealing directly with code, but numerous examples and libraries are available. Sensors or shields will communicate with serial or TTL.

If it requires power, you need to know how much, what all the pins do, and how to hook it up. You may need to reference datasheets, schematics, and know the ins and outs of electronics.
Skill Level: Rookie - You may be required to know a bit more about the component, such as orientation, or how to hook it up, in addition to power requirements. You will need to understand polarized components.

The 6DoF board works well but I wanted to integrate it with a Redboard QWIIC. I use a MacM1 computer and I couldn't get the Chinese FDDI driver to load that the Redboard uses. I have an old PC laptop that it does work with but I thought it odd that progress seemed to stop with old PCs and ignores a lot of MacOS users.
