The MPU-6050 is a serious little piece of motion processing tech! By combining a MEMS 3-axis gyroscope and a 3-axis accelerometer on the same silicon die together with an onboard Digital Motion Processorā¢ (DMPā¢) capable of processing complex 9-axis MotionFusion algorithms, the MPU-6050 does away with the cross-axis alignment problems that can creep up on discrete parts. The partsā integrated 9-axis MotionFusion algorithms can even access external magnetometers or other sensors through an auxiliary master I2C bus, allowing the devices to gather a full set of sensor data without intervention from the system processor. For precision tracking of both fast and slow motions, the MPU-6050 features a user-programmable gyro full-scale range of Ā±250, Ā±500, Ā±1000, and Ā±2000Ā°/sec (dps) and a user-programmable accelerometer full-scale range of Ā±2g, Ā±4g, Ā±8g, and Ā±16g.Dimensions: 4x4x0.9mm QFNFeatures:Digital-output of 6 or 9-axis MotionFusion data in rotation matrix, quaternion, Euler Angle, or raw data formatTri-Axis angular rate sensor (gyro) with a sensitivity up to 131 LSBs/dps and a full-scale range of Ā±250, Ā±500, Ā±1000, and Ā±2000dpsTri-Axis accelerometer with a programmable full scale range of Ā±2g, Ā±4g, Ā±8g and Ā±16gReduced settling effects and sensor drift by elimination of board-level cross-axis alignment errors between accelerometers and gyroscopesDigital Motion Processingā¢ (DMPā¢) engine offloads complex MotionFusion, sensor timing synchronization and gesture detectionEmbedded algorithms for run-time bias and compass calibration.
