The LSM9DS1 is a versatile, motion-sensing system-in-a-chip. It houses a 3-axis accelerometer, 3-axis gyroscope, and 3-axis magnetometer ā nine degrees of freedom (9DOF) in a single IC! The LSM9DS1 is equipped with a digital interface, but even that is flexible: it supports both I2C and SPI, so youāll be hard-pressed to find a microcontroller it doesnāt work with. This IMU-in-a-chip is so cool we put it on the quarter-sized breakout board you are currently viewing!The LSM9DS1 is one of only a handful of ICās that can measure three key properties of movement ā angular velocity, acceleration, and heading ā in a single IC. By measuring these three properties, you can gain a great deal of knowledge about an objectās movement and orientation. The LSM9DS1 measures each of these movement properties in three dimensions. That means it produces nine pieces of data: acceleration in x/y/z, angular rotation in x/y/z, and magnetic force in x/y/z. The LSM9DS1 Breakout has labels indicating the accelerometer and gyroscope axis orientations, which share a right-hand rule relationship with each other.Each sensor in the LSM9DS1 supports a wide spectrum of ranges: the accelerometerās scale can be set to Ā± 2, 4, 8, or 16 g, the gyroscope supports Ā± 245, 500, and 2000 Ā°/s, and the magnetometer has full-scale ranges of Ā± 2, 4, 12, or 16 gauss.Features:3 acceleration channels, 3 angular rate channels, 3 magnetic field channelsĀ±2/Ā±4/Ā±8/Ā±16 g linear acceleration full scaleĀ±4/Ā±8/Ā±12/Ā±16 gauss magnetic full scaleĀ±245/Ā±500/Ā±2000 dps angular rate full scaleSPI / I2C serial interfacesOperating Voltage: 3.3VDocuments:SchematicEagle FilesHookup GuideDatasheet (LSM9DS1)GitHub (Design Files)GitHub (Library)Product Video
