  • Hi,

    I just ordered a SEN-10736 Razor IMU. I want to evaluate the board with the prospect of using it for an electronic compass for my yacht.

    The Razor IMU comes with demo firmware, which outputs data on the serial link and can be set up via the serial link.

    Can anyone please let me know, where I can get the specifications for the serial protocol. My attempts so far failed to find a document, which explains the serial messages.

    Initially I would like to evaluate the board by connecting it to a laptop and by using a terminal program. If the board is suitable, then I would like to connect the serial link to an embedded processor.

    I also wonder if the demo firmware contains compensation of the magnetic bearing by using the data from the accelerometer and the gyro. Sailing boat are are an instable platform and move in all dimensions.

No public wish lists :(
