MIKROE Gyro 7 Click

Gyro 7 Click is a compact add-on board that contains a high-performance gyroscope. This board features the ICG-1020S, a dual-axis MEMS angular rate sensor (gyroscope) from TDK InvenSense. The ICG-1020S provides extremely low RMS noise as well as noise density. The high-resolution gyroscope supports a full-scale programmable range of ±46.5dps to ±374dps, a fast sample rate at up to 32kHz, an SPI serial interface, and extremely low power consumption. This Click board™ is designed for optical image stabilization (OIS) applications.

Gyro 7 Click is supported by a mikroSDK compliant library, which includes functions that simplify software development.

Gyro 7 Click as its foundation uses the ICG-1020S, a high-performance 2-axis gyroscope from TDK InvenSense. The ICG-1020S is highly configurable with a full-scale programmable range from ±46.5dps to ±374dps. The single structure vibratory MEMS rate gyroscope detects the X- and Y-axis rotation. When the gyroscope is rotated about any sense axes, the Coriolis effect causes a detected vibration. The resulting signal is amplified, demodulated, and filtered to produce a proportional voltage to the angular rate. With its 2-axis integration, this Click board™ allows customers' to design it into an optical image stabilization (OIS) application.

Two-axis MEMS rate gyroscope sensor, the ICG-1020S, comes with integrated 16-bit ADCs and signal conditioning with two axes XY configuration. After the signal is digitized, data is processed through a digital filter and output through sensor data registers. Besides, the ICG-1020S is also characterized by high resolution and low RMS noise, noise density, a fast sample rate at up to 32kHz, and low power consumption.

Gyro 7 Click communicates with MCU through a register-selectable standard SPI interface that enables high clock speed up to 20MHz, supporting the two most common SPI modes, SPI Mode 0 and 3. Other blocks include onboard clocking, temperature compensation, and bias circuits. The sensor data registers contain the latest gyro data, and they are read-only registers accessible via the serial interface. Data from these registers may be read anytime. It also possesses an additional interrupt signal, routed on the INT pin of the mikroBUS™ socket labeled as INT, indicating when a specific interrupt event occurs.

This Click board™ can be operated only with a 3.3V logic voltage level. The board must perform appropriate logic voltage level conversion before using MCUs with different logic levels. However, the Click board™ comes equipped with a library containing functions and an example code that can be used, as a reference, for further development.
