Single Axis MEMs Gyro - LY530ALH

Replacement: None. We no longer carry this IC, but check out our sensors category for more gyros. This page is for reference only.

This is a low power, single axis yaw gyro from ST Microelectronics with a 300°/s maximum range. Options include integrated low pass filters and an embedded power down feature. Outputs both a 1x and 4x amplified, analog voltage proportional to the sensed angular-rate. Comes in an LGA-16 pin package.

  • 2.7 to 3.6VDC supply
  • Low power consumption
  • Wide operating temperature range (-40°C to +85°C)
  • High stability overtemperature
  • ±300°/s output
  • Embedded power-down feature
  • Analog angular-rate output
  • Two separate outputs (1x and 4x amplified)
  • Integrated low pass filters
  • Embedded self test
  • High shock survivability

  • typo in the title ("Axes")

  • Heads up to Eagle users: as of 11-3-09 the sparkfun Eagle library has an incorrect symbol for this part. The package is correct but the symbols has the pins labeled incorrectly.
    Overall I am impressed by the perforance/cost of this (based on the datasheet I haven't tried it yet).

  • Has anyone got one of these up and running yet? General comments? Drift?
