Replacement: None. We do not have a direct replacement for this board. However, you might want to look at all of our current IMUs. This page is for reference only.
Description: The Arduino-compatible IMU is a project by Chris Anderson and Jordi Muñoz to create an AHRS (attitude heading reference system) for UAV control and general motion capture. This is the daughter board for the ArduIMU 6DOF. By itself, this board works as a very small single axis gyro breakout board. This board can be connected to an ArduIMU 6DOF main board to add an axis of angular velocity data.
The ArduIMU 6DOF daughter board comes equipped with a LISY300AL, a single axis, ±300°/s range gyro. All filtering components are also included. This board is designed to connect to the ArduIMU 6DOF main board at a 90 degree angle. Our breakaway right angle headers work great for this!

Note: This product is a collaboration with Jordi Munoz of 3d Robotics. A portion of each sales goes back to them for product support and continued development.
5-19-2010: We will be slowly retiring this board over the next few months. The LISY300AL is a very good gyro, but there is quickly dual and triple axis single ICs coming out.
