The SparkFun 9DOF MPU-9150 is the worldās first 9-axis MotionTracking MEMS device designed for the low power, low cost, and high performance requirements of consumer electronics equipment including smartphones, tablets and wearable sensors. And guess what? You get to play with it. This breakout board makes it easy to prototype with the InvenSense MPU-9150 by breaking out all the pins you need to standard 0.1" spaced headers. The board also provides I2C pullup resistors and a solder jumper to switch the I2C address of the device. The MPU-9150 is a System in Package (SiP) that combines two chips: the MPU-6050, which contains a 3-axis gyroscope, 3-axis accelerometer, and an onboard Digital Motion Processorā¢ (DMPā¢) capable of processing complex MotionFusion algorithms; and the AK8975, a 3-axis digital compass. The partās integrated 6-axis MotionFusion algorithms access all internal sensors to gather a full set of sensor data.Features: Tri-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±16gTri-axis compass with a full scale range of Ā±1200ĀµTReduced settling effects and sensor drift by elimination of board-level cross-axis alignment errors between accelerometer, gyroscope, and compassVDD Supply voltage range of 2.4Vā3.46V; VLOGIC of 1.8VĀ±5% or VDDGyro operating current: 3.6mA (full power, gyro at all rates)Gyro + Accel operating current: 3.8mA (full power, gyro at all rates, accel at 1kHz sample rate)Gyro + Accel + Compass + DMP operating current: 4.25mA (full power, gyro at all rates, accel at 1kHz sample rate, compass at 8Hz rate)Accel low power mode operating current: 10uA at 1Hz, 20uA at 5Hz, 70uA at 20Hz, 140uA at 40HzFull Chip Idle Mode Supply Current: 8ĀµA400kHz Fast Mode IĀ²C serial host interfaceOn-chip timing generator with Ā±1% frequency variation over f
