Intel Edison Block - 9 Degrees of Freedom

35 €35.00

Availability: Retired

The Intel Edison is an ultra small computing platform that will change the way you look at embedded electronics. Each Edison is packed with a huge amount of tech goodies into a tiny package while still providing the same robust strength of your go-to single board computer. Powered by the Intel Atom SoC dual-core CPU and including an integrated WiFi, Bluetooth LE, and a 70-pin connector to attach a veritable slew of shield-like Blocks which can be stacked on top of each other. Its no wonder how this little guy is lowering the barrier of entry on the world of electronics!

The 9 Degrees of Freedom Block for the Intel Edison uses the LSM9DS0 9DOF IMU for full-range motion sensing. This chip combines a 3-axis accelerometer, a 3-axis gyroscope, and a 3-axis magnetometer. By default, the IMU is connected to the Edison through the I2C bus but it can be configured to use the SPI bus. Each sensor in the LSM9DS0 supports a wide range of, well, ranges: the accelerometers scale can be set to 2, 4, 6, 8, or 16 g, the gyroscope supports 245, 500, and 2000 /s, and the magnetometer has full-scale ranges of 2, 4, 8, or 12 gauss. Additionally, the LSM9DS0 includes an I2C serial bus interface supporting standard and fast mode (100 kHz and 400 kHz) and an SPI serial standard interface.

Note: This product is available for pre-order. We expect to have these built and shipping in 6-8 weeks. Adding a pre-order product to an order may cause a delay. Be sure to uncheck ship complete order in your cart to avoid delays in shipping in-stock items.
