This product has been retired from our catalog and is no longer for sale. This page is made available for those looking for datasheets and the simply curious.
Description: Replacement: None. The LPR530AL IC is end-of-life and so it’s time for this breakout to step aside and make way for more cool stuff in the catalog. This page is for reference only.
This version of the breakout removes the issue with the high-pass filter. We removed R5 and R8 and replaced C1 and C2 with a jumper.
This is a breakout board for the ST’s dual-axis LPR530AL gyro. The LPR530AL measures angular velocity along the pitch and roll axes with a full scale of ±300°/s. Two different analog outputs are provided for both the x- and y- axes - one 1x amplified and the other 4x amplified.
A regulated voltage between 2.7 and 3.6VDC should be supplied to the power pins. You’ll just need to connect the outputs to an ADC, and you’re ready to go.
This breakout board includes the gyro and all necessary filtering capacitors as shown. The 1x and 4x amplified outputs of both axes are connected to the 0.1" pitch headers, along with the power-down, self-test, high-pass filter reset, and power pins.
Note: The picture is inaccurate and does not reflect the new changes. When we get the new version in stock, we will get a new picture. You can refer to the schematic and Eagle files below though.
