Customer Comments

  • Any chance you’d consider making a breakout board mounting three of these gyros to measure X, Y and Z axes?

  • ST has a dual-axis (pitch and roll) gyro that is similarly priced. Cheap gyros = cool new toys!

  • How about a 6DOF breakoutboard with IDG300, LISY300AL and MMA7260Q. That would be great for the UAV fans!
    Better still to embed all those on a Logomatic with a free I2C port!!

  • Does anyone have an eagle footprint for this?

  • Any time-frame on when a breakout board version will be available?

  • Anyone used this gyro? Price is little bit surprising.
